Turning their attention back to European duties after their stunning collapse over the weekend, Tottenham will welcome Austrian outfit LASK to North London on Thursday night.

Throwing away a 3-0 lead against bitter rivals West Ham on home soil, Spurs shipped a trio of strikes in the dying embers and while they might have managed to extend their unbeaten run to eight matches on the bounce, they are in need of a far more polished display.

On the flip side, while LASK might have entered the international break with a thumping defeat against Rapid Wien, they did manage to secure a thumping 3-0 romp against Wörgl over the weekend and could be confident of causing what would be a real upset on foreign soil.

In what is the first meeting between the Thursday’s opponents on Europa League duties in midweek, we could be in for a lively contest on paper.

You might be interested to know, with nine of the last 10 combined matchups between Spurs and LASK seeing over 2.5 goals by the final whistle, another high-scoring contest in the capital can be found priced at 4/7 with Betfair.

Derby day heartbreak for Spurs

While Spurs might have burst out of the traps as they scored three quick goals against West Ham over the weekend, it was a worrying collapse for Jose Mourinho’s men as they had to settle for a heartbreaking point against the Hammers in North London.

Still showing a string of issues at the back and their derby day shocker likely to still be playing on their minds, the former Manchester United boss should at least take some solace from Harry Kane’s remarkable start to the New Year.

Bagging a brace on Sunday afternoon and with some feeling that the England skipper is in the best form of his career, Spurs’ MVP appears to be relishing his deeper role and his relationship with Son Heung-min is almost telepathic.

In fact, since Mourinho took charge of Spurs in November 2019, Harry Kane (33) and Son Heung-Min (30) have had a direct hand in more goals in all competitions than any other Premier League players.

You might be interested to know Kane is priced at 8/11 with Bet365 to bag his first Europa League strike on Thursday.

The free-scoring Austrians

Entering the international break with a thumping 3-0 defeat against Rapid Wien earlier in the month, that result was heavily criticized by many and Head Coach Dominik Thalhammer would have been glad to see his side pick up a much-needed morale boost over the weekend.

Eventually putting on a late flurry and picking up a deserved 3-0 win against lower league Wörgl, the Bundesliga outfit should at least be boosted by a very impressive display last time out on European duties.

Putting on what was a thumping display as they picked up a 4-1 romp away at Portuguese giants Sporting Lisbon when opening October, LASK have secured back-to-back Europa League wins since their close-fought 2-1 defeat at Old Trafford.

Scoring a staggering 11 goals in those pair of victories and watching the in-form Marko Raguž bag three strikes in those European outings, you might be interested to know that LASK are priced at 4/6 with Paddy Power to breach a leaky Spurs defence in midweek.
