Tottenham Hotspur welcome Wolfsberger AC to north London this evening for the second leg of the teams’ last-32 tie in the Europa League, with Spurs in prime position to progress to the next round of the knockout stages.

Jose Mourinho’s side are in a dismal run of form at the moment, having lost five of their last six games, but the odd result out in that series of matches was their 4-1 first-leg victory over Wolfsberger last week. That clash took place in Budapest, Hungary, having been relocated from Austria due to coronavirus-related travel rules, and Gareth Bale, Son Heung-min, Lucas Moura and Carlos Vinicius all found the net for the Premier League club at the Puskas Arena.

With four ‘away’ goals to their name and a three-goal aggregate lead heading into tonight’s second leg, Tottenham should have no problem progressing, and will hope to use the game to rebuild some momentum following their 2-1 derby defeat by West Ham in the top flight at the weekend. It will also give Mourinho a chance to give some game time to players struggling for first-team action. Follow live updates from Tottenham vs Wolfsberger in the last 32 of the Europa League below.

10’: GOAL! Dele Alli gives Spurs the lead, and what a goal!

Tottenham work the ball nicely around the periphery of the Wolfsberger box. Matt Doherty’s cross finds Alli, who has the time to flick the ball up and execute a wonderful overhead kick from 12 yards out.

Shades of Olivier Giroud!
