But there is no time for the visitors to take advantage of that. Full time at White Hart Lane and it's all square. 2-2.
Salah, the arguable player of the match, is replaced by Degen, the twin brother of the former Liverpool player.
The impressive Streller is replaced by Zoua.
Corner comes to nothing. Cabral replaces Die in a Basel switch.
Salah's runs continue to cause problems for Spurs, as Parker is booked for sliding in, leaving a good shooting opportunity for Basel.
That is Holtby's last contribution to the game as he is replaced by Dempsey.
Dawson had replaced Ekotto just before the goal.
GOAL - Sigurdsson equalises!!!
Dylan writes: 'Hi mate. Indeed, tottenham first half performance is absolutely shocking. Gallas isn't good enough. Caulker should come on. I'm def happy with Ade goal and I think lenon should play on the right wing and Mousa should take his normal position center mid to bring the ball through the defense to reach Ade or Bale or else. Got to score two or three more goals which not impossible.'
Neil writes: 'Whilst it has been a shocking first half display I believe we can put in a good shift and come out fighting, the first 20 minutes of the second half will be crucial and could possibly decided the tie COYS!'
Charlotte writes: 'still believe spurs can come out of this match with a win #COYS'
Gino writes: 'Hi, Why or why does AVB keep picking W. Gallas who is way way past his sell by date and the reason why we keep losing so many goals in Europe. While he plays we have Caulker and Dawson on the bench. It doesnt make sense. Luckly we are only 1-2 down half time and hopefully get it right second half.'
As you can imagine, the odds have changed considerably on the outcome of this match after that first half. Spurs are now 9/4 to win, as is the draw while Basle have been cut to 11/10. One of the half time priceboosts is a 3-3 draw, priced at 14/1. Visit www.skybet.com to place your in-game bets.

That's the end of the first half.
GOAL - Adebayor pulls one back for the hosts!!!
GOAL - 2-0 to Basle!!! Frei the goalscorer!
GOAL - Stocker scores for Basle!!!
Gallas is booked for a needless foul on Streller, gifting Basle a good crossing opportunity.
Lennon is forced to come off, he is replaced by Sigurdsson.

David writes: 'Watching live here in israel. A bit worried about the degfensive formation, excepting vertinghen, gallas too slow and the two full backs prone to making stupid mistakes. But if we take the game to them, we should force it tonight with a 3 goal victory. Holtby to score his first for tottenham and adebayor to come good'

I think Spurs will win this game but can also see Basle nicking a goal. 3-1 is my tip, which is available at 11/1. You can increase that to 28/1 if you back Bale to net the first goal of the game as well. That has also been enhanced by Sky Bet prior to kick off.
As expected, Spurs are well fancied for this one and are priced at 4/9. Basle are the 13/2 outsiders while the draw is available at 100/30. Priceboosts include Tottenham to win 3-0 (10/1) and Alexander Frei to score first and the game to be drawn 1-1 (70/1).
