Tottenham Hotspur will face Royal Antwerp in Belgium on Thursday in their second match in the Europa League.

Jose Mourinho’s side will be wanting to keep their winning momentum after their most recent triumph in the Premier League on Monday at Burnley.

Spurs also had strong 3-0 victory at home against LASK last week, and a win at second-placed Antwerp this week would leave them heavy favourites to win Group J.

Antwerp are top of the Jupiler Pro League with six wins from 10 this season.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the match.

When is the match?

The game kicks off at 5:55pm on Thursday 29 October.

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?

Antwerp are unlikely to make many changes to their side after edging out Beerschot at the weekend. Former Manchester United and Leicester City defender Ritchie De Laet should feature in a three-man back line, while Aurelio Buta could come into the side at wing-back if fit. Alexis de Sart and Matheus are out injured.

Recent arrivals Gareth Bale and Carlos Vinicius will most certainly start in attack for Spurs along with Erik Lamela. Ben Davies and Moussa Sissoko may keep their places in the starting line-up after both playing well against Burnley. Japhet Tanganga is out with a thigh injury, while Serge Aurier is on the comeback trail from knocks.

With Spurs having already played plenty of games this season, the likes of Sergio Reguilon and Joe Hart should play on Thursday, while Joe Rodon is not part of the Europa League squad.

Predicted line ups

Antwerp: Butez, Seck, Gelin, De Laet, Buta, Haroun, Hongla, Juklerod, Gerkens, Mbokani, Refaelov.

Tottenham: Hart, Doherty, Sanchez, Davies, Reguilon, Sissoko, Winks, Lamela, Lo Celso, Bale, Vinicius.


Antwerp - 5/1

Draw - 7/2

Tottenham - 4/7
