Tottenham Hotspur welcome Austrian outfit Wolfsberger AC to the capital on Wednesday evening, looking to book their place in the Last 16 of the Europa League.
Spurs routed the visitors 4-1 in the first leg, a match that was played in Budapest due to COVID rules in Austria, and will be hoping they can put the tie to bed tonight.

That victory is their only win in their last four games, amid mounting pressure on manager Jose Mourinho to turn things around, as the Portuguese tactician has seen his odds cut into the 3/1 favourite to be the next Premier League manager to leave.
That poor form sees them in their lowest league position since the opening game of the season, and they’re now nine points adrift of The Hammers in 4th place – albeit with a game in hand.
Thankfully for them the visitors tonight aren’t as strong as their domestic opposition has been, and their first leg advantage should lead to this being a fairly comfortable night for Spurs in London.
Unlike their hosts they were able to pick up a victory at the weekend, though that was against a side that had 10 men for 55 minutes. It lifted them to 5th (of 12) in the Austrian Bundesliga, though they are still 16 points off Salzburg at the top of the table.
They will be hoping 35-year-old midfielder Michael Liendl and 21-year-old Dejan Joveljic can fire them into the next stage of the competition. They are the clubs top scorers in the Europa League and Bundesliga respectively, though all five of the former’s goals have been penalties.
As far as betting is concerned in this one, I’m going to be looking at a BetBuilder.
Even though Spurs are likely to rest most of their starters, specifically Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min, I still expect them to be too strong for the away side here. I’ll be taking Spurs to Score Over 1 Goals and Carlos Vinicius To Score Anytime at 21/20 with bet365.
The Brazilian forward has scored four times in his last three Europa League appearances, averaging a goal every 48.5 minutes, including against these very same opponents last week.
I would expect Wolfsberger to employ a relatively high line, with goals imperative for them to get back into this tie. That should leave space in behind the defence for Vinicius to exploit.
