A dominating victory in the first leg away from home means the hosts already have one foot in the next round of the Europa League.

Tottenham turn their attention away from the Premier League on Wednesday as they prepare to welcome Wolfsberger AC to north London for the Europa League Round of 32 second-leg.

The tie, however, is all but settled with the top-flight side having cruised to a 4-1 win against the Austrian outfit last week.

Son Heung-min opened the scoring in the first leg, Gareth Bale and Lucas Moura tripled the lead in the first half before Carlos Vinicius put the final nail in the coffin in the dying moments of the game at Puskas Arena.

Tottenham vs Wolfsberger Form:

Jose Mourinho’s men maintain a 100 percent record at home in Europe this season, having won all four of their matches.

Also, they boast a great attacking record in the competition with 31 goals scored in their 10 matches.

However, their recent form is something to worry about. Spurs go into the match on the back of a 2-1 defeat to West Ham, which was their fourth defeat in the last five Premier League outings.

The visitors, meanwhile, emerged victorious in two of their three away matches in the group stages.

Wolfsberg will have to be wary of their upcoming opponents’ attacking strength, especially considering they have conceded in each of their last five games.

Morale will be high for Ferdinand Feldhofer’s men going into the last-32 2nd leg match as they have won four of their last five domestic games, with the latest one being a 2-1 result against SK Sturm Graz.
