Andre Villas-Boas: Spurs boss takes his side to Lazio

Tottenham and Lazio meet at the Stadio Olimpico with both teams setting their sights on reaching the round of 32 knockout phase.

Victory for the hosts would guarantee they progress as winners of Group J, while Spurs know that a win will see them through, but only if Panathinaikos avoid defeat in their home meeting with Maribor.

The build-up to the match has been overshadowed by violence in Rome, with a number of Spurs supporters injured following reports of an attack by Lazio 'Ultras'.

Meanwhile, home coach Vladimir Petkovic hopes the fans will flock to see their idol Paul Gascoigne as the Italian giants look to reach the next phase.

Gascoigne will be Lazio's guest of honour at their Group J clash at the Stadio Olimpico in recognition of his iconic status at both clubs.

Ticket sales have been slow for the match, with only around 30,000 expected in the 82,000-capacity stadium. But the Rome-based club, who sold only 8,500 tickets for their last game against Panathinaikos, hope Gascoigne's appearance will bring more supporters to the ground.

"He is a player who goes down in the history books for Lazio and everybody will be pleased to see him at the stadium," Lazio boss Petkovic said. "It will give the fans an added incentive to come and see the game."

Andre Villas-Boas' Spurs side currently sit in second place in Group J behind their table-topping hosts with two games still to play.

Lazio are unable to call on veteran forward Miroslav Klose - joint second in the all-time World Cup goalscorers list.

Klose, who has been linked with a move to Tottenham in the past, suffered a knock in the 0-0 draw with Juventus at the weekend and has not recovered sufficiently.

The veteran forward was not named in Petkovic's 19-man squad for the clash, with Mauro Zarate, Sergio Floccari and Libor Kozak the striking options.

Mousa Dembele has been carrying a hip injury and although he has travelled with the squad to Rome, is not expected to prove his fitness in time.

Scott Parker (Achilles), Benoit Assou-Ekotto and Younes Kaboul (both knee) are all sidelined, and England defender Steven Caulker is also doubtful with a knee problem.

Goalkeeper Brad Friedel has remained in London with the injured Yago Falque - meaning another start for France international Hugo Lloris.
