Yevhen Konoplyanka scored from the penalty spot late to give Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk the advantage over Tottenham in the first leg of their last-32 Europa League tie at the Dnipro-Arena in Ukraine.
Jan Vertonghen was ruled to have fouled Matheus with 10 minutes left on the clock, and Liverpool's January target Konoplyanka beat Brad Friedel in the Spurs net to leave Tim Sherwood's side with an uphill battle in the return leg at White Hart Lane.
