Andre Villas-Boas insists that Tottenham Hotspur must win tonight to move into a good position in Group J.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Andre Villas-Boas has insisted that his side must beat Panathinaikos tonight despite picking up a draw against Lazio two weeks ago.

The trip to Greece is the second game of six in total, but Villas-Boas wants Spurs to get into the two qualifying spots as early as possible with a win.

"We need to try to get the win because it will put us in a better position in the group, and it will leave Panathinaikos in a more difficult position," he told the club's official website.

"In the end, two teams qualify and we have to make sure we get what we want from this game."

Spurs are currently third in Group J, a point ahead of tonight's opponents.
