Tottenham take on Austrian outfit Wolfsberger AC in today’s early evening Europa League encounter at the Puskas Arena in Budapest, Hungary.
This evening’s first leg, which is due to kick off at 5:55pm, has been moved to a neutral venue due Covid-19 regulations in Austria which meant that the game couldn’t take place at its original venue of the Worthersee Stadion in Klagenfurt.
Spurs boss Jose Mourinho is hoping to put defeats by Manchester City and Everton behind him with a win tonight.
Elsewhere, Premier League rivals Leicester are also in Europa League action at the same time and will face Slavia Prague at the Eden Arena.
