Andre Villas-Boas denied complacency got the better of his Tottenham team after they threw away a lead to leave Panathinaikos with a just a point.

Spurs were in complete control of their Group J game against the Greek side and took the lead after 35 minutes when Michael Dawson glanced Tom Huddlestone's cross past Orestis Karnezis.

Jermain Defoe, Gareth Bale, Clint Dempsey and Huddlestone then all missed chances to put the game to bed and Panathinaikos took full advantage through striker Toche, who left Dawson for dead and turned in a Giorgos Seitaridis 13 minutes from time. "I don't think we were complacent," Villas-Boas said.
