UEFA Europa League 2011, Matchday 6, Early Thursday Scores: Tottenham Hotspur Out, PAOK And Rubin Through

Tottenham Hotspur got close to finding the miracle they needed to advance to the knockout stages of the UEFA Europa League, but came up just short. They needed a win, a PAOK win over Rubin Kazan, and results that helped them make up a five-goal deficit and tiebreakers. At halftime of the two games, PAOK was up 1-0 over ten-man Rubin, while Tottenham led Shamrock Rovers 3-0. Unfortunately for Spurs, things did not go their way in the next 45 minutes. Rubin Kazan found an equalizer, while they only scored one more goal in their match.

Elsewhere, the knockout stage places were set previously, but they played games anyway! Favorites Hannover 96 and PSV Eindhoven both notched wins.
