Despite some inconsistency in their domestic form, Tottenham will look to continue their strong continental record by beating Tromso and guaranteeing themselves top place in the final group standings.
Spurs have won their first four games in the group and are 5 points clear of second placed Anzhi with just two games left to go in the group stages.
After seeing his side humiliated 6-0 by Manchester City at the weekend, Andre Vilas Boas is expected to make
several changes for the trip to Norway with Etienne Capoue, Kyle Naughton and Jermaine Defoe all likely to start in Norway.
Alongside that, Hugo Lloris also set to be rested after his fitness problems meaning that Brad Friedel will fill in for the Frenchman during tomorrow evening’s tie.
Jermaine Defoe will be out to continue his lightning form in the competition as he currently leads the club’s scoresheets in Europe with 5 goals from the opening 4 games.
Norwegian side Tromso have not endured the best of times in the competition and they currently sit bottom of Group K getting just one point from the opening four games.
The only fitness concern surrounding the home side revolves around defender Adnan Causevic who is struggling with a groin issue and will need a late fitness test to see whether he can participate.
Although victory does seem beyond the small Norwegian side, Tromso will see scoring in the tie as a small victory considering that they have only scored once in the entire group stages and that their opponents are yet to concede in Group K.
Meanwhile, Anzhi Makhachkala can seal their spot in the next round if they are able to defeat Moldovan side Sheriff Tiraspol at home on Thursday night.
Anzhi are five points ahead of Sheriff in second place and know that a draw will be enough to guarantee them a safe passage through to the last 32.
Although the Russian side have been in abysmal form in the Russian Premier League as of late, they will hope that the strength of striker Lacina Traore will be enough to cause the Moldovan champions enough problems to get the result that they need.
Even though Tottenham have breezed through their games in the Europa League so far, Spurs will look to tomorrow’s game to bring back some confidence to the squad ahead of a tough run of Premier League fixtures in the lead-up to Christmas.
