The Group Stages of the 2020/21 Europa League conclude on Thursday and Tottenham's tie with Royal Antwerp will determine who finishes top of Group J.
Tottenham vs Royal Antwerp (Thursday, 20:00)
Jose Mourinho's men have secured qualification with a game to spare, but Thursday's guests Royal Antwerp sit top of the section heading into the final set of fixtures.
Ivan Leko's side stunned Spurs with a 1-0 win in the reverse fixture and that will see Mourinho and Co on a revenge mission, with the added incentive of finishing as the No 1 seed heading into the knockout rounds.
True, Tottenham have bigger fish to fry, but I fancy the Premier League pacesetters to pinch top spot by putting the Belgians to the sword on Thursday night.
There is little value in backing a Spurs victory at a general 3/10, however, there is an alternative angle that has caught my eye in Sky Bet's Request A Bet market.
The combination that I like the look of is Tottenham to score two or more goals and Royal Antwerp to receive 20+ booking points, an even-money shot with Sky Bet.
Tottenham have scored three or more goals in six of their last seven Europa League games and eight of their last nine outings in Europe's secondary club competition have featured three or more match strikes.
The capital club look a different proposition under Mourinho this season and the self proclaimed “Special One” has made it known that he is itching to improve on his impressive record in the Europa League with a view to bringing Tottenham's 13 year trophy drought to an end.
With that in mind, Spurs will be desperate to avoid a difficult draw in the round of 32, whereas Royal Antwerp could revert to the dark arts in a bid to preserve their place at the summit.
The Belgians have racked up 20+ booking points in four of their five Group J fixtures so far and I fancy that trend to continue given that a trip to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium will represent a serious upgrade on all of their previous challenges.
