Tottenham travel to Bulgaria on Thursday night to face Ludogorets in the Europa League.
After defeat last time out in the competition, manager Jose Mourinho made it clear he was disappointed with his second string’s performance and he could go with a stronger line-up here as a result.
Spurs beat Brighton at the weekend, a third win in four games in all competitions.
Ludogorets, meanwhile, beat Levski Sofia in their domestic league – just a second win in five across all competitions.
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the game.
When is the match?
The game kicks off at 5:55pm on Thursday 5 November.
Where can I watch it?
The match will be shown live on BT Sport 2. Subscribers can also stream the match via the BT Sport website or app.
What is the team news?
It looks likely that Mourinho will make drastic changes to his squad after his fringe players wasted an opportunity to impress in their defeat to Antwerp.
Mourinho has already confirmed that Gareth Bale will start Thursday’s match after scoring the winner against Brighton on Sunday and has near enough a fully fit squad to choose from, with the exception of Japhet Tanganga, who is out with a thigh injury.
The hosts will be relying on Elvis Manu to help them pull off a shock victory over Tottenham, with the striker netting a hat-trick in last week’s loss to LASK.
Predicted line ups
Ludogorets: Iliev, Cicinho, Moti, Verdon, Nedyalkov, Andrianantenaina, Badjia, Santana, Tekpetey, Manu, Yankov.
Tottenham Hotspur: Hart, Aurier, Sanchez, Dier, Davies, Lo Celso, Winks, Alli, Bale, Vinicius, Lucas.
Tottenham – 1/3
Draw – 9/2
Ludogorets – 15/2
