Spurs, who competed in the Champions League final in 2019, finished seventh in last season’s Premier League campaign, which has seen them drop into the third tier of European competitions.

The Europa Conference League (ECL) will run with a similar format to the Europa League, which has been condensed slightly, to run below the pinnacle of club football, the Champions League.

Kickoff Time

FC Pacos de Ferreira is scheduled for a 7:30pm BST kick-off on Thursday, August 18, 2021.

The match will be played at Estadio Capital do Movel in Pacos de Ferreira.

Harry Kane has returned to training with the Spurs first team, but it remains to be seen whether he will be included in the travelling squad for the trip to Portugal.

Ryan Sessegnon is lacking match fitness, while Tanguy Ndombele's future remains up in the air after not being used in pre-season despite no injury

Despite being part of Spurs' travelling squad, Kane may only be named among the replacements by Nuno.

However, the Portuguese is expected to make widespread changes, handing full debuts to the likes of Pierluigi Gollini, Cristian Romero and Bryan Gil.

Giovani Lo Celso could also be brought into the starting lineup, but Son Heung-min is likely to keep his position down the middle of the attack.

Having made four alterations by the 70th minute against Boavista, Simao could make a number of changes to his Pacos de Ferreira XI.

Helder Ferreira, Ze Uilton, Joao Pedro and Douglas Tanque are all in contention for appearances in the team.

Pacos vs Tottenham prediction

There is a sense of optimism around Spurs following Sunday’s 1-0 Premier League win over champions Manchester City, so a game against Pacos that could previously have been greeted with a cynical edge now takes on a different air - especially with plenty of squad players looking to impress Nuno.

Pacos 1-2 Spurs

Tottenham will be determined to get the job done while exerting themselves as little as possible.

Expect Santo to rotate his squad heavily, offering a big chance for new signings Cristian Romero and Bryan Gil to come into the fold.

A lack of strikers, and a determination not to slip on this banana skin affair, means Son Heung-Min could be one of the few starters from the weekend to keep his place and he should be enough to put Pacos de Ferreira to the sword.
