- April 4, 2013
Tottenham 2 – Basel 2 (Europa League quarterfinal 1st leg, April 4, 2013) (Alternative highlights) Valentin Stocker finished off a decisive Basel attack on the half hour as Spurs’ defence were easily prised open. Spurs fell 2-behind five minutes later when Fabian Frei was given the freedom of the box to head home a corner. Spurs got back in the tie in the 40th when Emmanuel Adebayor followed up Parker’s initial shot to half the deficit. Scott Parker somehow managed to miss an open goal from three yards out. Tottenham levelled before the hour when Gylfi Sigurdsson’s deflected shot beat Sommer.
