Tottenham Hotspur have traveled here for an interesting Europa League fight against Lokomotiv Plovdiv. Prepare for the match with this cup preview!

It’s a hectic schedule for the away team, as they were in action only four days ago in the Premier League.

Tottenham Hotspur have a very long trip to this away game, as there's more than 2700 kilometers in distance to cover. This could prove a challenge, at least for the supporters.

Lokomotiv Plovdiv form and stats

This is not the first game this season in the Europa League for Lokomotiv Plovdiv, as the manager B. Akrapović led his troops to eliminate Iskra, and reach the 2nd Qualifying Round. Last season their Europa League adventure ended in the 3rd qualifying round.

As mentioned below, Lokomotiv Plovdiv are feasting on a winning streak here so far with maximum points from their first 2 Parva Liga games. Lokomotiv has recorded two wins in a row here at Stadion Lokomotiv, increasing their hopes of victory in this match.

The fans are hoping that Lokomotiv will strike back in this match, putting things right after the 1-3 away loss in the Parva Liga game against Ludogorets. Before that, Lokomotiv Plovdiv had a Parva Liga home game versus Cherno More which ended with a victory 2-1.

There will be little rest for Lokomotiv after this match as they are travelling to Etar for a Parva Liga game in only three days.

Early season league goal statistics from Lokomotiv Plovdiv's 2 home games: 4 goals, 2 conceded.

Tottenham Hotspur form and stats

Last season their Champions League adventure ended in the 8th finals against RB Leipzig.

This game can not go any worse than the last one, a Premier League home defeat versus Everton with 0-1 on the scoreboard. A 1-1 draw at Crystal Palace's stadium before that.

The schedule is very tough for Spurs now as they have to travel again shortly after this match. A Premier League game at Southampton is waiting in only three days.

The UEFA Europa League, abbreviated as UEL and commonly referred to as just the Europa League, is an annual football club competition organised by UEFA. It is the second-tier competition for football clubs in Europa, beneath the UEFA Champions League in value and importance. Teams qualify through their performance in their national leagues and cup competitions. Some teams qualify from the Champions League; more precisely the teams who are knocked out in the playoff qualifying round and the third-place finishers of the group stage. The winner of the Europa League qualifies for the Champions League in their next competitive season.
