thumbnail Hello,

Spurs travel to Georgia for their Europa League play-off, with a place in the main competition up for grabs, with Hugh Wilson is expecting the English side to dominate

Tottenham take on Dinamo Tbilisi with the Gareth Bale transfer saga still continuing the make the headlines in north London.

Spurs, however, will be keen to put their recent transfer activity to one side as they focus on an important Europa League play-off first leg.

They travel to Georgia, where they face the Umaglesi Liga Champions. Dinamo are familiar with the Europa League qualifying rounds but have not reached the group stages since 2004-05.

Dinamo come into this match having already played six competitive games this season. Dusan Uhrun Jr's men have played two league games in their quest to retain the title, winning their opener and drawing their second match away.

Tbilisi had started out in Champions League qualification but were knocked out by Steaua Bucuresti 3-1 on aggregate. Coral price the home side at 5/1 (6.00) to cause a shock and win.

Spurs kicked off their season with a solid 1-0 win away at newly promoted Crystal Palace. A goal for Roberto Soldado on his debut was enough to take all three points in south London.

With Tottenham narrowly missing out on a Champions League place last season, Andre Villas-Boas will be eager to make a mark in the Europa League. Coral price the north Londoners at 8/15 (1.53) to take the win. The same firm price the draw at 3/1 (4.00).

A bet that seems to stand out in this fixture is Tottenham HT/FT at 23/20 (2.15) with Coral. With Villas-Boas naming a strong travelling squad, with the likes of Jermaine Defoe, Roberto Soldado, Michael Dawson and Paulinho making the trip to Georgia, Spurs should comfortably take a lead back to White Hart Lane.
