Tottenham vs LASK: Europa League preview


Tottenham will have to shake off the disappointment of their draw with West Ham when they start their Europa League group stage against LASK.

Three goals conceded in the final eight minutes overshadowed an otherwise impressive attacking display, and Gareth Bale’s second debut.

Bale could again be involved on Thursday against the Austrians, though Jose Mourinho is expected to make a number of changes.


Date, time and venue

Tottenham vs LASK is scheduled for an 8pm BST kick-off on Thursday, October 22, 2020.

The match will be played behind closed doors at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium with no fans due to be present due to government guidelines regarding coronavirus.

How to watch

TV channel: The match will be televised live on BT Sport 2 and BT Sport Ultimate.

Live stream: BT Sport subscribers will be able to stream the match online via the video player and the BT Sport app.

Team news

Eric Dier missed Sunday’s draw with West Ham and could come in, while Dele Alli will be hoping for minutes after also failing to make the 18-man squad. Erik Lamela is expected to feature.

Carlos Vinicius is in line to make his debut, though dropping Harry Kane, and Heung-min Son, in this form will be a tough call to make.

Prediction: Tottenham 2-0 LASK

This Spurs team can score goals, which they have proven plenty recently. Their frailties at the back should not come to haunt them on Thursday, despite expected changes.
