    Tottenham will be without Gareth Bale, who is close to joining Real Madrid, for the second leg of their Europa League play-off against Dinamo Tbilisi.

    Spurs beat the Georgian side 5-0 last Thursday and with a derby against Arsenal on Sunday, boss Andre Villas-Boas may choose to rest some players.

    Aaron Lennon missed training on Wednesday because of a foot injury.

    Benoit Assou-Ekotto (knee) and Emmanuel Adebayor are unlikely to be involved with their club futures in doubt.

    Portuguese coach Villas-Boas, who won this competition while in charge of Porto in 2011, said that despite Bale's impending move, he was content with his squad's response.

    "We have a very, very strong team. If this transfer happens, it will give [players] the opportunity to step up their game, step up the responsibility and I think we have seen that in the last couple of games," he said.

    "There hasn't been any disruption. We've been working well and the team is training very, very well."

    Andros Townsend, who scored one goal and set up two others in the first leg, is one player who has the grasped the chance of a first-team place. The Spurs academy graduate has also earned a place in the senior England squad for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers after an impressive start to the season.

    Tottenham's record signing Roberto Soldado has scored four goals in three games since he signed from Valencia in the summer for £26m.

    Provisional squad (from): Friedel, Lloris, Archer, Walker, Kaboul, Vertonghen, Naughton, Dawson, Fryers, Fredericks, Stewart, Rose, Paulinho, Capoue, Sandro, Townsend, Dembele, Chadli, Sigurdsson, Carroll, Hotlby, Dombaxe, Soldado, Defoe, Kane, Coulthirst, Lancaster.

    Jermain Defoe scored twice as Tottenham cruised through to the Europa League group stage after beating Dinamo Tbilisi in the play-off second leg.

    Having beaten the Georgian side 5-0 last week, Spurs once again showed the gulf between the two sides.

    Defoe scored his first after 40 minutes by firing in Lewis Holtby's diagonal pass and then converted Gylfi Sigurdsson's cross before half-time.

    Holtby then smashed in his first Spurs goal from 25 yards after 69 minutes.

    Spurs will now join the likes of Valencia, Lyon, Lazio, Fiorentina, Swansea and Wigan in the Europa League draw, to be held in Monaco at 11:45 BST on Friday.

    And after the addition of record £26m striker Roberto Soldado, who has scored four goals in three games since joining Spurs, Defoe used a one-sided affair to make his mark on his first start of the season.

    The England striker was used intermittently towards the end of last term, but with Roma forward Erik Lamela also set to join Tottenham, Defoe underlined he can play his part in his side's attempt to win four trophies this season.

    Dinamo, without their injured top scorer Xisco, did not muster a shot on goal until after the break when Elguja Grigalashvili's effort was comfortably gathered by Spurs goalkeeper Brad Friedel.

    But the match gave important playing time to some of Tottenham's growing squad.

    In the wake of Gareth Bale's impending move to Real Madrid for a world-record £86m, it has been a summer of big spending at White Hart Lane with Steaua Bucharest centre-back Vlad Chiriches and Lamela the latest players set to be signed by Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas. The club is also being linked with Ajax midfielder Christian Eriksen.

    So first starts of the season for Defoe, Friedel, Holtby, Sandro and Tom Carroll were no doubt welcome ahead of some fierce competition for starting places.

    Mindful of Sunday's Premier League game against Arsenal, Villas-Boas made eight changes to the side which beat Swansea last weekend, and the team took time to find their cutting edge.

    But after Defoe shot wide early on, he found his range before the break with a clever run in from the right before taking Holtby's pass and blasting into the bottom corner.

    Six minutes later he scored an easy second, tapping in from two yards from Sigurdsson's centre after neat skill by Kyle Walker.

    Villas-Boas, who won the Europa League with Porto in 2011, withdrew the likes of Walker and Andros Townsend in the second period.

    And the remaining players were intent on trying to get on the scoresheet against such weak opposition, with Sigurdsson crashing a shot against the bar just after the hour.

    Patrick Vouho had an isolated effort for the visitors when he headed wide from a free-kick.

    But Holtby, who already seems like an experienced Tottenham player such has been the force of their recruitment drive, proved more accurate when he drove in off the crossbar.
