Tottenham Hotspur will look to further their bid for a place in the Europa League knockout stages when they welcome Bulgarian giants Ludogorets Razgrad to North London for Thursday’s Group J showdown.
Tottenham Hotspur come into this game following a 2-0 win over Manchester City on Saturday in the English Premier League.
Goals from in-form attacker Son Heung-min and Argentina international Giovani Lo Celso secured a vital victory for Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur.
Ludogorets Razgrad, on the other hand, beat CSKA 1948 3-0 nearly three weeks ago in the First Professional Football League.
A brace from veteran Romanian attacker Claudiu Keseru and a goal from winger Mavis Tchibota secured the victory for Ludogorets Razgrad.

- Tottenham have won six of their last seven games in all competitions.
Spurs were comfortable winners when the teams last faced off in Bulgaria earlier this month.
With four clean sheets in their last seven assignments in all competitions, Spurs seem to be leaving their early-season defensive problems behind, and with a more solid platform to spring from, Jose Mourinho’s men are worth backing to win to nil on Thursday.
Tottenham Hotspur and Ludogorets Razgrad have faced each other once before, in the reverse fixture in this season’s UEFA Europa League group stage.
Tottenham Hotspur beat Ludogorets Razgrad 3-1 in that game courtesy of goals from star striker Harry Kane, Brazil international Lucas Moura and midfielder Giovani Lo Celso.
Tottenham Hotspur are top of their UEFA Europa League group, but are on the same points as Antwerp and LASK. They are doing well in the English Premier League, and will be the favorites to win this game.
Ludogorets Razgrad, on the other hand, have lost all three games in their Europa League group. They were thrashed the last time they faced Tottenham Hotspur, and will have to be at their very best in order to earn any kind of result against their English opponents away from home.
