Tottenham may see winning the Europa League as their best chance of qualifying for next season’s Champions League following a dip in their domestic form.

Spurs already look assured of a place in the last 16 after beating Wolfsberger 4-1 in Budapest in the opening leg of this tie, even with Harry Kane rested.

The Austrian outfit only grabbed a consolation goal from the penalty spot and appeared to possess limited ability.

We’re snapping up 11/10 for Jose Mourinho’s men to win to nil in London for our first Tottenham vs Wolfsberger prediction.

A Look At Tottenham Hotspur’s Betting Odds

Tottenham enjoyed a welcome reprieve from their Premier League troubles in Hungary, having now lost five of their last six matches in England’s top flight following Sunday’s 2-1 defeat at West Ham.

Son Heung-min, Gareth Bale, Lucas Moura and Carlos Vinicius were on target at Puskas Arena, where Spurs had 62 per cent of the possession.

“Pleased with the result because of course 4-1 away from home gives you a good space for any possible mistake that you can make in the second leg,” said Mourinho.

“I think we have one foot in the next round. The result is of course very good.”

Bale put in one of his best displays since returning to Tottenham on loan from Real Madrid, also picking up an assist.

Spurs raced into a 3-0 lead at the break that night, so 4/5 they are ahead at half-time and full-time again here appeals from the Tottenham vs Wolfsberger odds.

A Look At Wolfsberger’s Betting Odds

Wolfsberger midfielder Christopher Wernitznig hit the bar after Michael Liendl’s penalty gave them hope of a second-half fightback.

However, an 88th-minute strike by Vinicius is expected to have knocked the stuffing out of Mohamed Sahli’s side, who had to forego home advantage due to coronavirus issues.

Liendl told the UEFA website: “We played against a world-class team, so it was not easy…you saw the quality from their team.

“The difference between Tottenham and us is they have one chance and score, whereas we needed three or four. The better team won.

“If we had scored the second goal, maybe we would have had more chance. However, we scored one goal so it was not enough.

“It was really nice and we have to try for next season to come back here.”

The Wolves are fifth in Austria’s Bundesliga after a 2-1 win at Sturm Graz over the weekend, but needed a last-minute decider against 10 men.

With the visitors resigned to bowing out, this should be a comfortable night for Spurs, who will be keen to keep a confidence-boosting clean sheet.

Let’s go with 15/2 for a 3-0 home win to finish off our Tottenham vs Wolfsberger betting tips.
