Tottenham seems poised to win this series returning home with 2 away goals and a clean sheet under their belt. Dinamo would have to rekindle some of that same magic they saw at home to force an overtime.
Tottenham will likely be playing without Gareth Bale as the rumors of a transfer pick up steam. Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas said it could happen “very, very soon.”
