Basel vs. Tottenham Hotspur: Lineups

Clint Dempsey and Lewis Holtby are named in Tottenham's starting eleven as they look to progress past FC Basel and claim a semi-final spot in the Europa League.

Aaron Lennon, Jermain Defoe and Gareth Bale are all absent for Spurs, and with the visitors needing goals, Lewis Holtby, Gylfi Sigurdsson and Clint Dempsey will all line up behind Emmanuel Adebayor in an attempt to get the required result.

Basel, meanwhile, opt for Valentin Stocker, Mohamed Salah and Marco Streller to lead a dangerous-looking team. The Swiss outfit have two away goals from the first leg, so Spurs may well need to win the game in order to progress.

Basel starting line-up: Yann Sommer, Philipp Degen, Fabian Schar, Aleksandar Dragovic, Park Joo-Ho, Mohamed El-Nenny, Fabian Frei, Serey Die, Mohamed Salah, Valentin Stocker, Marco Streller.

Tottenham starting line-up (4-2-3-1): Brad Friedel; Kyle Walker, Michael Dawson, Jan Vertonghen, Kyle Naughton; Scott Parker, Moussa Dembele; Lewis Holtby, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Clint Dempsey; Emmanuel Adebayor.
