class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>The north London side are likely to make plenty of changes for their Europa League clash but our tipster still thinks they are worth backing
Premier League leaders Tottenham welcome Ludogorets to north London on Thursday evening as Jose Mourinho’s men aim to transfer their strong domestic form to the Europa League.
Spurs are currently top of Group J following two wins and one defeat from their three games, while their Bulgarian opponents are yet to pick up a point in the competition heading into matchday four.
Tottenham vs Ludogorets Latest Odds
Spurs were victorious by a 3-1 scoreline when they played in Bulgaria on matchday three and bet365 offer them at 1/10 (1.10) to record another success.
The visitors meanwhile can be backed at 25/1 (26.00) with the draw at 9/1 (10.00).
Tottenham vs Ludogorets Team News
Spurs are set to be without Toby Alderweireld after he was forced to come off against Manchester City at the weekend with injury, while Japhet Tanganga is still sidelined and Matt Doherty has tested positive for coronavirus. Erik Lamela and Harry Winks are both doubts.
The visitors have long-term absentees Higinio Marin and Wanderson unavailable.
Tottenham vs Ludogorets Preview
Spurs played a strong team when they visited Bulgaria at the beginning of the month but the starting eleven for Thursday’s clash is likely to see a few more rotations.
Indeed, Mourinho will surely want to give some of his most-used players a rest ahead of a daunting domestic fixture schedule that awaits the north Londoners, with games against Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool and Leicester all coming up in the next three weeks.
Nevertheless, the Premier League side should still be too strong for their opponents who have lost every encounter so far in the group.
Spurs have won six of their last seven matches in all competitions and are building momentum, but in five of those victories there have been less than four goals and backing that run to continue on Thursday should appeal.
Tottenham vs Ludogorets Tips and Predictions
Spurs to win and under 3.5 goals in the game is priced at 11/8 (2.38) and looks like an excellent selection, given how regularly it has paid out in Tottenham’s matches over the last few weeks.
