Spurs will confirm their place in the Europa League knockout stages with a draw tonight in Austria before a possible showdown with Royal Antwerp next week to secure top spot in Group J.
Harry Kane and Carlos Vinicius are both injured, along with Sergio Reguilon and Erik Lamela, so Jose Mourinho is light up front. Heung-min Son is not expected to be risked with Arsenal to come on Sunday, so Lucas Moura could get the nod between Dele Alli and Gareth Bale.
Royal Antwerp host the group’s whipping boys Ludogorets at the same time, meaning the lay of the land ahead of the final gameweek will be clear at full-time.

GOAL! | LASK 1-2 Tottenham | Heung-min Son 56’
Ruthless. You’ve got to feel for LASK but this is a lesson in being clinical as Ndombele releases Son and the Korean makes no mistake.
47 mins: There was a bit of concern for Matt Doherty, who seemed to hurt himself in the slip that led to LASK’s goal, but he has re-emerged for the second half.

Bale’s equalising penalty on the stroke of half-time was entirely undeserved but has got Spurs out of jail after an abject first half from the visitors. Question now is whether Mourinho rings the changes or tells his starting XI to put it right.
HALF-TIME | LASK 1-1 Tottenham |
A scoreline that doesn’t tell half the story.
GOAL! | LASK 1-1 Tottenham | Gareth Bale (P) 45+2’
Level with the final kick of the half! Gareth Bale steps up and calmly sends the goalkeeper the wrong way.
45+1 mins: Penalty to Tottenham!
Ndombele’s shot is charged down by Andrés Andrade, who has his arms raised up in the air, and it’s clear spot-kick.
GOAL! | LASK 1-0 Tottenham | Peter Michorl 42’
Matt Doherty slips in midfield and gifts the ball away and how, he is punished. It’s a cracking dipping striker from Michorl from all of 30 yards that beats the dive of Joe Hart and finds the far corner.
40 mins: Into the final five minutes of the half and you suspect Jose Mourinho will be preparing a bit of a rollocking. If not for Joe Hart, Spurs would be a couple down here.
31 mins: A huge chance and an excellent save from Joe Hart.
LASK work it really nicely and Madsen has far too much space as he breaks into the box on the left but Hart is out to make a crucial block.
