Spurs suffered a surprise defeat against Belgian side Royal Antwerp last week, a result which left Jose Mourinho furious with his second string.
However, Mourinho’s men bounced back by beating Brighton in the Premier League on Sunday, albeit with a degree of controversy.
Ludogorets are already facing an uphill task to qualify having lost both of their opening two games.
Date, time and venue
Ludogorets vs Tottenham is scheduled for a 5:55pm GMT kick-off this evening (Thursday, November 5 2020).
The match will be held at the Ludogorets Arena.
How to watch
TV channel: The match will be televised on BT Sport 2.
Jose Mourinho’s comments following the defeat to Antwerp suggested he would be reluctant to make wholesale changes again as his fringe players wasted their chance to impress.
Gareth Bale scored the winner against Brighton on Sunday and will start again, potentially alongside Harry Kane, but full-backs Sergio Reguilon and Serge Aurier are out.
Japhet Tanganga is fit and training again but seems unlikely to start after a long lay-off.
Joe Rodon, Gedson Fernandes, Danny Rose and Paulo Gazzaniga are ineligible, meanwhile.
Spurs predicted lineup (4-3-3): Hart; Doherty, Sanchez, Alderweireld, Davies; Sissoko, Ndombele, Lo Celso; Bale, Kane, Lucas
Prediction: Ludogorets 0-3 Tottenham
Last week’s defeat should prove a mere blip against a side who are yet to get off the mark in the competition. Away win.
Head to head (h2h) history and results
The two teams have yet to face each other in a Uefa competition.
