Tottenham Hotspur will travel to Budapest to face Wolfsberger in the Europa League round of 32, and José Mourinho is expected to make a number of team changes.
The Austrian team currently ranks sixth in the Austrian Bundesliga, nine points behind LASK, third, which was defeated by Spurs in the group stage.
The game will take place at the neutral Puskás Arena, home to the Hungarian national team, as the COVID-19 regulations in Austria mean that the Spurs will not play at the Worthersee Stadion in Klagenfurt.
The Spurs are going through a losing streak of form right now, having won just once in their last six games in all competitions.
They are heading into this game after a 3-0 loss to Manchester City, and desperately need a win to get their season back on track.
Sergio Reguilon, Serge Aurier and Giovani Lo Celso are out due to injury, while Joe Rodon cannot play in the competition.
The likes of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Ben Davies and Tanguy Ndombele could have a break. Similarly, Harry Kane, who recently recovered from an ankle injury, could start off the bench.
Gareth Bale is likely to start after his impressive cameo against City, while the 23-year-old Bergwijn is also set to return.
Spurs’ expected starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Lloris; Doherty, Sánchez, Alderweireld, Tanganga; Sissoko, winks; Bale, Bergwijn, Jr.; Vinicius.
