Is Tottenham vs Wolfsberger on TV tonight? Kick-off time, channel and how to watch Europa League fixture

Tottenham Hotspur face Wolfsberger AC on Wednesday night and should complete the job with ease to reach the Europa League last 16, leading 4-1 from the first leg in Austria.

Home form hasn’t been good for Spurs though, with just three wins in all competitions from their last seven dating back to mid-December – and one of those victories was against Championship side Brentford. In the Premier League of late it’s even worse, with five defeats in six for Jose Mourinho’s side who are down to ninth place in the table.

European action has at least been more routine this season for Spurs, with a very weak group stage seeing them progress top with four wins from six. Wolfsberger finished second in their own group, ahead of CSKA Moscow and Feyenoord and four points behind Dinamo Zagreb.

What is the team news?

Spurs will likely make changes due to both the strength of their first-leg lead and their poor recent results. Giovani Lo Celso and Serge Aurier are the only two injury issues.

Eliel Peretz is out for the Austrian side, who must also give Sven Sprangler a late fitness test.

Predicted line-ups

TOT – Hart; Doherty, Alderweireld, Tanganga, Davies; Sissoko, Winks; Bale, Dele, Moura; Vinicius

WOL – Kofler; Novak, Baumgartner, Lochoshvili, Scherzer; Leitgeb; Taferner, Liendl, Wernitznig; Vizinger, Joveljic

Odds

Wolfsberger – 21/2

Prediction

A routine stroll for Spurs, though given the extent of their first-leg lead it might not be a classic despite a relatively high possible scoreline. Spurs 4-0 Wolfsberger, 7-1 on aggregate.
