Tottenham are playing for a place in the inaugural Europa Conference League as they face FC Pacos de Ferreira in the first of two play-off games this evening.

Spurs missed out on Champions League and Europa League football last season after finishing seventh in the table, but Nuno Espirito Santo’s side are still in continental action in Uefa’s new club tournament.

It may not be the competition that Spurs - or Harry Kane - wanted to be in, but it does offer a real chance of silverware for Nuno’s first season in charge, so will need to be treated with respect.

None of the 32 teams who will compete in the Conference League group stage were granted automatic qualification, and Spurs must first see out Portuguese outfit Pacos - who finished fifth in the Primeira Liga last season - over two legs if they are to make it to the group stage proper.

Date, kick-off time and venue

FC Pacos de Ferreira is scheduled for a 7:30pm BST kick-off today August 19, 2021.

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

Tottenham team news

Harry Kane did not travel with a youthful Spurs squad to Portugal on Wednesday morning, further delaying his return to action amid the England captain's ongoing frustrations with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy.

Kane is still building up his fitness after coming out of quarantine on Thursday last week and Nuno is set to ring the changes for the match, with the squad thought to include teenagers Alfie Devine and Dane Scarlett.

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 concerns.

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.
