Tottenham Hotspur return to Europa League action tomorrow with a trip to Austria to face LASK, and they will look to secure a win to reserve a place in the round of 16.
The hosts also need to win to keep alive their chances of advancing to the knockout stages, and they will do their best to frustrate José Mourinho’s men and get all three points.
The Spurs are currently second in Group J due to Antwerp’s superior head-to-head points with both teams tied at nine points after three wins in four games apiece, and they cannot afford to lose any more points if they want to finish their Europe. League group campaign as league leaders.
The Premier League leaders are on an impressive run having lost only twice in 18 matches in all competitions in 2020-21, and are huge favorites to score all three points in Austria.
LASK will be without the trio of Marko Raguz, Petar Filipovic and Lukas Grgic due to injuries, and that will be a huge blow to the hosts’ chances of getting the desired result.
Tottenham trio Carlos Vinicius, Sergio Reguilon and Harry Kane missed training today due to blows, and are not expected to be part of Thursday’s touring squad.
Not having a striker in the primaries could pose a major challenge to Mourinho’s plans, and he will have to deploy an impromptu option at the position.
Argentine attacking midfielder Erik Lamela is also unavailable for the national team due to injury, and although Belgian center-back Toby Alderweireld returned to training today, it remains to be seen whether he will make the trip tomorrow.
LASK predicted XI
Andrade, Trauner, Wiesinger
Renner, Holland, Michorl, Ranftl
Eggestein, Balic, Gruber
Tottenham predicted XI
Doherty, Sánchez, Tanganga, Davies
Winks, Lo Celso
Bale, Alli, Moura
