Scott Sutter once stole a piece of White Hart Lane grass when he used to come to Tottenham as a youngster.

Now the Young Boys defender is hoping to leave with the match ball when he takes to the field in Wednesday's Champions League play-off second leg.

Sutter will fulfil a boyhood dream when he runs out at White Hart Lane - although it will be against, rather than for, the team he grew up supporting.

But Sutter will have no qualms knocking Spurs out of Europe's premier club competition, having helped his side build a 3-2 first-leg lead last week.

He acknowledges they remain outsiders in the tie having squandered most of their 3-0 lead in the first leg, but said: "I think they've got more pressure than us first of all. We've got nothing to lose. They've got everything to lose."

"If we can get through the first 20-25 minutes without conceding a goal then I think we've got a fairly good chance."

And Sutter hopes Spurs take Young Boys lightly, just as he believes they did in the first leg. "I definitely think they did underestimate us - I think it's understandable," he said.

"I don't think the difference between a team like Tottenham - or a team in the top leagues - and a team in our league is that big anymore, and that's proved time and time again."
