Full Time. That's it. There is no consolation goal and it's finished 6-0. Tottenham will pleased with that performance.
Chance! Once again Martins goes close as he runs one-on-one against Lloris. But with the goalkeeper closing in, the South China man stabs his effort wide.
Chance! South China almost have their goal but Martins sees his brilliant curling effort pushed wide expertly by the diving Lloris.
Sigurdsson flicks the ball behind the defence and Defoe does the rest with a low left-footed finish.
Those substitutions have disrupted the game a little but Spurs clearly finishing much the stronger as South China tire.
Chance! Defoe away in the left channel and shoots with his weaker left foot. He gets great contact but Zhang saves with his feet.
A rare counter-attack from South China but Martins screws the shot just wide of the far post. So much excitement in the ground with every South China attack.
When the ball does go through to Defoe with a great pass from Carroll, the striker unselfishly tries to set up Sigurdsson but gets the pass wrong.
Defoe almost makes it a hat-trick as he lunges in to get on the end of a Rose cross but South China defend it well.
Rose with the through-ball and Zhang looks to be getting there ahead of Defoe but the goalkeeper tries to be too deliberate with his clearances and only succeeds in striking Defoe, who then runs clear and slots the ball into the empty net.
Spurs start as they left off. Good possession before Lennon tries a reverse pass to Sigurdsson that doesn't quite come off.
Walker sees his free-kick deflected and the ball falls conveniently for Defoe right in front of the goal. He lashes the ball into the corner to end the half on a high.
Best football Tottenham have played in a while. Space is engineered for Walker but his cross for Defoe is drilled a little too sharply and the striker cannot direct the header.
Great skill from Martins to get past Walker but his shot, cutting in from the left, is weak and straight at Lloris. The crowd loved that.
Another good build-up from Spurs finds Rose in space but Defoe cannot connect properly from his centre. It's actually a fine save from Tsang.
Miss! Parker lofts a pass over the top to Dempsey. The Spurs man gets lucky with the first touch and it sits up nicely for him to chip the goalkeeper but he gets too much on it and balloons the ball over the bar.
Lennon finds Sigurdsson in space on the left but his cross is somehow cleared despite the presence of Spurs bodies in the box.
Almost another own goal as Sigurdsson's cross is turned behind. South China struggling to deal with the pace of Walker and Lennon on the right.
Great show of pace from Lennon to beat two men on the right but there is no team-mate on the end of his cut-back.
Chance! Sigurdsson with a fine through-ball to get Defoe away and clean on goal but Joel just catches up the striker to block his shot.
Spurs continuing to dominate. Two more corners threaten to double the lead but South China stand firm.
Dembele strode forward and threaded a pass to Dempsey in the left channel. He then backheeled neaty to set up Rose to cross and Tse could only get a foot to it that pushed the ball into his own net.
First bit of possession in the final third for South China. Parker puts in a strong tackle to limit the opposition to a throw-in.
Mayhem in the South China box but Sigurdsson fails to connect cleanly with the bouncing ball and the chance comes to nothing.
Dempsey almost latches onto a Defoe flick-on but the England international had come back from an offside position.
The pitch has plenty of sand on it in an attempt to minimise the damage caused by the recent storms. The flanks look to be in better conditions but it could be a struggle to move the ball quickly in the middle.
Long odds against a South China win but they gave a decent account of themseves against Man City on Wednesday, losing just 1-0.
Sky Bet have the odds for this one and they make Tottenham 2/9 favourites with South China as the 11/1 outsiders. The draw is available at 6/1.
