Lokomotiv Plovdiv vs Tottenham Hotspur
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 17 September 2020
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Stadion Lokomotiv.
The Spurs are one of the best teams in possibly the best league in Europe. In fact, they are counted amongst the traditional top-six teams in the Premier League, and are perennial contenders to lift the title each and every season.
In Harry Kane, they have potentially one of the best strikers of this generation, and in Jose Mourinho, they have one of the best managers in the world.
They were the finalists of the Champions League a season before, and for them a qualification match in the Europa is actually a downgrade.
They will try to wrap it up in quick fashion, and will possibly make a statement that they are here to win the tournament.
It also helps their case that they are pitted against a team from Bulgaria, whose professional league are deemed to be the 27th in the continent.
Likely, expect a Tottenham Hotspur win this Thursday.

- These two teams are fighting each other for the very first time.
Lokomotiv Plovdiv vs Tottenham Prediction
The Smurfs are not only are from the Bulgarian First League, comparatively far weaker than the EPL, but the team could manage just a fifth-place finish last season.
They had also lost their latest game by conceding three goals, and at home, they were winless in four of their former six appearances.
Meanwhile, on the other side we have the desperate Spurs, who are raring to prove to the world that they are still a team to be feared.
They might have missed out on qualification to the Champions League, but Mou (who loves spotlight) will definitely try to win the Europa, and once again draw comparisons with the likes of Pep Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp etc as the best managers in the world.
By all means, expect Tottenham Hotspur to have a massive upper hand this Thursday, and make good use of it as well.
