1'
Refaelov goes for goal from long range, but he blazes the first shot of the game over the bar.
1'
Away we go with Antwerp kicking off the match.
4'
Winks makes a clumsy foul on Refaelov in midfield, although perhaps it was possibly more a statement of intent than a mistake.
6'
Bale goes for goal from long range, but fires well wide of goal with a low effort.
10'
De Laet clatters into the back of Vinicius and gives a free-kick away. Spurs look to build from inside their own half.
13'
The ball comes into Spurs' box from Antwerp's left from a corner, but the hosts are unable to find the finishing touch to take it past Lloris! There is an Antwerp head on it, but only a faint touch which misses the target by some distance. Spurs survive.
16'
Winks goes for goal from the edge of the box, but he shoots wide of the target.
19'
Bergwijn shoots from just outside the box now, but doesn't catch the ball cleanly. His shot rolls into the grateful grasp of Butez.
20'
Seck is yellow-carded for a cynical foul on Bergwijn to stop a Tottenham break.
22'
Refaelov receives a cut-back on the edge of the box and takes the ball away from Winks with an exquisite first touch. The finish is less sublime as he fires off target again.
23'
Vinicius is played in behind, but de Laet keeps the pressure on him and allows Butez to snatch the ball off his feet before he can shoot.
27'
Antwerp are not letting Spurs have it all their own way. They win a corner, but Dele Alli clears following Refaelov's delivery.
29'
GOAL, ANTWERP, REFAELOV! 1-0: Spurs lose possession as Davies is bullied off the ball. Mbokani sets Refaelov up and he finishes off! Antwerp take a shock lead!

32'
Bergwijn takes the ensuing corner, but it's hit too close to Butez, who holds on.

38'
It's Bale who has a go now, but fires off target.
38'
Bergwijn's effort is blocked by Seck again.
41'
Bale looks to control a long ball, but de Laet is on him in a flash and robs him. The Welsh superstar's frustration is evident.
45'
HALF-TIME: ROYAL ANTWERP 1-0 TOTTENHAM. Refaelov's goal separates the sides at the break. Jose Mourinho has some thinking to do as he looks to save his side.
45'
A poor clearance invites pressure onto Tottenham. Miyoshi gets in behind Reguilon, but the Spurs defender redeems himself by clearing the cut-back behind for a corner. Seck meets that, heading off target.
46'
Spurs made a quadruple change at the break. Vinicius, Bergwijn, Lo Celso and Alli went off for Son, Hojbjerg, Moura and Lamela.
46'
Off we go for the start of the second half. Tottenham have plenty of work to do.
48'
Mbokani robs Davies of the ball once more, but Sanchez recovers for Spurs with a crucial challenge.
49'
Refaelov picks up a yellow card for his challenge on Lamela.
53'
A seemingly revitalised Spurs are putting pressure on Antwerp, pushing for an equaliser.
54'
Antwerp threaten at the other end as the ball is played in from Miyoshi on the left for Mbokani, who somehow misses at the far post!
55'
Juklerod goes for goal from long range, forcing Lloris to tip over the bar with a good strike.
58'
Kane comes on for Spurs with Bale making way. That's one generational superstar replacing another.
59'
Miyoshi makes way with Buta coming on. Hojbjerg looks to play Moura in for a shot, but the Brazilian can't quite get the aerial ball under control.
62'
Slick passing from Spurs. Moura picks out Son with the pass in from the right, but Seck makes another superb block to deny the South Korea international.
65'
Juklerod looks to get in behind Aurier, but the Ivory Coast international shields the ball and wins the free-kick.
69'
Spurs win a free-kick in a dangerous area. Son curls it towards the far post in what appears to be a shot, but might have been a cross. Butez holds on either way.
70'
Verstraete is on in place of Hongla for Antwerp.
72'
Juklerod is played in behind and surely must score. He has Mbokani up in support if he wants to lay the ball off, but he panics and fires off target. Lloris will be thanking his lucky stars!
75'
Verstraete has a shooting chance inside the box, but the substitute's shot is blocked.
77'
Spurs continue to attack, while Antwerp are causing problems on the break at every opportunity. Speaking of opportunity, Kane has a half-chance from long range, but his shot is blocked.
81'
Heading into the last 10 minutes plus stoppage time, Spurs are still struggling to create anything of substance. Antwerp are holding onto their advantage.
84'
Verstraete clatters into Hojbjerg and picks up a yellow card.
88'
Benavente comes on to replace goalscorer Refaelov.
88'
Lamela looks to weave his way through the defence, but his touch is too heavy and he fouls Verstraete in an attempt to recover the ball.
89'
Winks goes for goal, but he fires over the target. Jose Mourinho cuts a frustrated figure on the side.
90'
FULL-TIME: ROYAL ANTWERP 1-0 TOTTENHAM. An historic night for Royal Antwerp as they hang on to beat Tottenham through Refaelov's first half winner!
90'
Moura goes for goal from long range, but fails to trouble Butez.
90'
Five minutes of stoppage time have been added on as Antwerp look to withstand one last wave of Spurs pressure.
90'
Spurs get the ball in from the right and Lamela looks to score at the far post, but his first touch is poor and the chance goes abegging.
