Paris: Juande Ramos earned a measure of revenge for his sacking by Tottenham Hotspur as Dnipro snatched a late 1-0 win over his former club in the Europa League last 32 first leg on Thursday.

The game was given the green light despite reports that at least 60 people have died in three days of violent political protests in Kiev.
