There will be a rare game in the Europa League on Wednesday evening. Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to complete their progression at the New Tottenham Hotspur Stadium by getting another routine victory.
Europa League Preview
In truth, this Europa League tie is already over, as it is incredibly unlikely that Wolfsberg are going to score the four unanswered goals that they need to progress through to the next round. Spurs produced one of their better performances of 2021 so far to take control of the tie, as they secured a 4-1 away success in the first leg. It will be slowly dawning on Jose Mourinho that Tottenham’s best route into the Champions League next season will be by winning the Europa League, but it still looks likely that he will rest a number of senior players for the second leg with a packed schedule to come over the coming weeks. The brightest spark for Spurs in the first leg success was the performance of Gareth Bale, who scored the second goal for Tottenham in the win. Heung Min Son, Lucas Moura and Carlos Vinicius were the other scorers in the commanding win.
Wolfsberg will still be looking forward to this season leg despite them having next to no chance of progression. This will be the first time that they have played a competitive game on British soil, and the very least that they will be hoping to show on Wednesday will be a positive outing. They would have taken confidence from the goal that they scored against Spurs last week, as Michael Liendl scored from the spot ten minutes into the second half. However, to repeat that feat away from home will be more challenging.
Tottenham Hotspur vs Wolfsberg Team News
Mourinho will likely rest a number of first team players for this second leg. Among the stars that will be given the night off include Harry Kane, Heung Min Son and Hugo Lloris. Serge Auirer and Giovani Lo Celso will be missing through injury. There is only one injury concern for the visitors, as Eliel Peretz will be out.
Tottenham Hotspur vs Wolfsberg Prediction
This shouldn’t be a difficult fixture for Spurs, as they have already showed that there is a gulf between the two sides. Spurs should claim another big victory back at home, with Bale likely to shine once again.
