Preview and odds for Thursday’s Europa Conference League clash

Tottenham are making harder work of progressing in the Europa Conference League than might have been expected as we pick out some Mura v Tottenham betting tips for the meeting on matchday five.

Spurs are second in the group, three points behind Rennes who they host in their final group game so their destiny is in their own hands but they have work still to do.

Thursday’s match, which kicks off at 5.45pm at the Stadion Ljudski vrt in Maribor, is live on BT Sport.

NS Mura v Tottenham match odds

Antonio Conte’s first match as Tottenham manager came three weeks ago in this competition when he was given a glimpse of what life at the club is like with a dramatic 3-2 win over Vitesse Arnhem.

Conte witnessed a perfect start as Spurs found themselves 3-0 up in less than half an hour.

Son Heung-min scored the opener in the 14th minute before Lucas Moura and a Jacob Rasmussen own goal seemingly had the hosts in total control.

Rasmussen pulled one back for the Dutch side before Matus Bero reduced the arrears again and Cristian Romero’s red card on the hour put Spurs further on the back foot.

It was only when Danilho Doekhi and Markus Schubert were sent off for Vitesse in the final 10 minutes that they were able to get control of the game.

Conte will hope for an improved defensive display here, having since overseen a 0-0 draw at Everton and 2-1 home win against Leeds.

Tottenham are 1/6 for a third victory in four matches under Conte while a win to nil is an option for Mura v Tottenham betting tips at 7/10.

Mura are bottom of the group after losing all four matches, conceding 10 goals which is the same number as Spurs have scored.

They are also the lowest-ranked team in the competition so Tottenham are 5/4 to win both halves and 11/8 to win by three goals or more, with Mura 18/1 to cause an upset.

Harry Kane climbed off the bench to bag a hat-trick as Tottenham produced a confidence-restoring 5-1 win over Mura in the reverse fixture in September.

The first meeting between these teams came just four days after Spurs suffered a harrowing north London derby defeat to Arsenal and the Slovenian outfit were the perfect opposition.

Goals from Dele Alli and Giovani Lo Celso in the opening eight minutes put Spurs in charge and, after Ziga Kous scored the goal of his life for the minnows after half-time, Kane came on to finish the job in the final 30 minutes.

Both teams to score again is priced at 27/20 while the visitors to be leading after 15 minutes could appeal at 27/10 in Mura v Tottenham betting tips.

Conte will hope to not have to call upon Kane and instead save him for Sunday’s trip to Burnley.

Steven Bergwijn was an unused substitute against Leeds and is 11/2 to open the scoring here while Alli is 7/4 in the anytime goalscorer odds.
