Venue: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Slovenian side Mura will make their first ever trip to England for a European match as they take on Tottenham Hotspurs in matchday 2 of the UEFA Europa Conference League group stage.
Spurs enter their 12th successive year in contention for a European title to their name, as the only English club to participate in the inaugural UEFA Europa Conference League.
The Lilywhites have had a terrible run of games heading into the match, after suffering successive losses to their London rivals in Crystal Palace, Chelsea and Arsenal.
Nuno’s men have only managed a penalty shout-out victory against Wolves in the league cup in their last 5 matches, after starting off their season with 3 consecutive league wins. They are currently sitting in 11th position in the league.
The north Londoners qualified for the UEFA Europa Conference League with a win on aggregate over Portuguese side Paços de Ferreira. In the group stages they came back from behind to rescue a point against Rennes in a match which ended 2-2.
The team has faced a clear shortage of goals this season with Son scoring half of the 6 goals they have scored in the league and European matches.
Mura would be facing their first European group stage contest after being knocked out in one of the qualifying rounds in their previous 13 occasions in the UEFA qualifying stages.
The Slovenian side ended up in the UEFA Europa Conference League after successive eliminations from both the Champions League and the Europa League qualifiers.
After their first ever Slovenian league title in the previous campaign, they have been struggling to defend the title and now sit in 5th position with only 4 wins in 11 matches.
Interestingly Mura has managed to keep a clean sheet in all of their away victories in UEFA competitions, with an away record of 3 wins and 3 losses.
Tottenham vs Mura Head-to-head
- This is the first fixture these teams will go head-to-head.
- Mura has not faced an English club in any of their previous UEFA contests.
- Spurs are undefeated against Slovenian sides in UEFA competitions with 2 wins and a draw.
Tottenham vs Mura Prediction
The North Londoners suffered a demoralizing loss in the north London derby further extending their winless run against London sides. Mura has not been on the best of runs either.
A win for Spurs is highly expected with goals over 3.5 is also a fair shout.
