Tottenham will be looking to ease into the Europa League last-16 when they welcome Wolfsberger to north London on Wednesday.
Having won four out of four home games in this season’s competition, Spurs are clear 2/7 (1.29) favourites with bet365 to wrap the tie up with another victory.
Wolfsberger won two of their three away games in the group stages but are 8/1 (9.00) outsiders to find a way back into the tie by pulling off a shock win here.
Just two of this duo’s combined 17 fixtures in this season’s competition have resulted in draws, but there are odds of 5/1 (6.00) available on them cancelling each other out in this one.
Serge Aurier and Giovani Lo Celso are the only injury concerns for the hosts, while Joe Rodon is ineligible after not being included in the Europa League squad.
Eliel Peretz remains sidelined and Sven Sprangler is a doubt after coming off injured in Sunday’s win over Sturm Graz, although Mario Leitgeb should be back in contention.
While their Premier League campaign has been a frustrating one so far, Spurs have enjoyed some welcome relief in this competition – particularly in front of goal.
Indeed, they have scored 31 times in their 10 Europa League matches and are averaging exactly four per game in their own backyard.
After a disappointing run of five defeats in six league matches, they will be keen to secure another morale-boosting result in a game that is already heavily stacked in their favour.
Ferdinand Feldhofer’s team is certainly there for the taking considering they have failed to keep a clean sheet in five matches, although can at least point to a record of failing to score just once in four Europa League away games – hitting the net seven times in the other three.
With little pressure on Tottenham, odds of 6/4 (2.50) are well worth backing on them ensuring over 3.5 goals are scored for the fourth time in five Europa League games.
All odds correct at time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
