Tottenham Hotspur FC marked their 100th match in the UEFA Cup and UEFA Europa League by qualifying as runners-up from Group J courtesy of a 3-1 home victory over Panathinaikos FC.

A second-half own goal from goalkeeper Orestis Karnezis and a clever Jermain Defoe finish put the north London side in the clear after Zeca had stunned White Hart Lane with a 54th-minute equaliser. Emmanuel Adebayor had fired André Villas-Boas's team ahead just before the half-hour mark.
