Spurs are yet to lose in the competition, but have won just one of their five games. The two teams drew 1-1 in the reverse fixture.

A draw against the Greek giants could be enough to see Andre-Villas-Boas' side through to the next round, while victory coupled with a loss by Lazio to Maribor would see the north Londoners emerging as group winners.

Villas-Boas will be without long-term injury victims Scott Parker (achilles), Younes Kaboul and Benoit Assou-Ekotto (both knee).

Hamstring problems for Gareth Bale and Michael Dawson see them missing the clash.

Panathinaikos coach Juan Roman Rocha has no such problems, with a fully-fit squad at his disposal.

Spanish striker Toche is expected to start as the main attacking outlet, with Ibrahim Sissoko playing in the hole behind him.
