Spurs lined up with Whiteman in goal behind Omolabi and Marsh with Lock at right back and Brown on the left. Tsaroulla anchored the midfield with Shashoua and Harrison ahead of him flanked by Edwards on the right and Georgiou on the left in support of Loft up front.
Spurs started well running at the German defence taking an early lead when Georgiou got down the left and crossed for Harrison to drive low into the net. Krol had an effort that was wide before Bremen won a penalty when Topken was caught by Georgiou helping out Brown. Whiteman saved the spot kick diving to his left.
Harrison drew a save from Seide before Loft headed over from a corner by Edwards. Hoppe had an effort blocked with Krol hitting the rebound wide. Right at the end of the half a deflected shot by Loft was cleared off the line for a corner.
Spurs made an early change in the second half with Griffiths replacing Loft up front but despite Spurs having the better of the game Bremen equalised. Hoppe got clear on the left and cut inside to fire in across Whiteman. Wix was booked for a foul on Harrison as he got past him but the Bremen defence had stiffened up in the second half. When Edwards' effort was deflected to Georgiou on the left he fired over. With Bremen sending on an extra defender to hold out for the draw they had the last chance when Whiteman saved from Bohning.
FC Copenhagen 1-1 Tottenham Hotspur

Spurs lined up with Freeman in goal behind Omolabi and Marsh with Tsaroulla at right back and Brown on the left. Shashoua anchored the midfield behind Roles and Harrison with Reynolds on the right flank and Bennetts on the left in support of Griffiths up front.
Copenhagen had the chances in the first half with Host firing over and Bostrup driving wide. Hoise was booked for a foul on Roles before the dangerous Bostrup had an effort blocked and another go wide.
Early in the second half Spurs were awarded a penalty when Griffiths was caught in the area following a cross from the left. Harrison beat Djukic low to the keeper's left.
Holse hit a free kick well over before he was played in by good work by Bostrup to score the equaliser. Spurs made a double change as they tried to go for a winner with Edwards replacing Reynolds and Loft taking over from Griffiths who had a knock just before.
As Spurs pushed forward Copenhagen looked to break with Jensen firing wide. Loft was booked for dissent when he was pulled up battling for the ball (he was getting little from the ref and it was a sign of his frustration). Rojkjaer fired over when set up by Jensen and the last chance fell to Roles who was played in by Edwards but Djukic saved.
The two draws leave Spurs in third place as Bed Bull won both their games and Werder Bremen won their second.
