Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 Panathinaikos – Europa League – 6th December 2012
Tottenham cruised into the last 32 of the Europa League after overcoming Greek giants Panathinaikos at White Hart Lane.
Moody hitman Manu Adebayor opened the scoring on the half-hour mark after the visitors themselves had come close to scoring courtesy of Spaniard stiker Toche, who fluffed a great one-on-one chance.
The Lilywhites continued to press, with Jermain Defoe failing to make the most of a number of chances before, on 54 minutes, Pana drew level when Zeca headed home.
However, an own-goal from Orestis Karnezis and a late strike from Defoe sealed the deal for the Bale-less Tottenham who go through in second place from Group J, behind table-toppers Lazio.
