Tottenham Hotspur: Europa League last 32 tie away to Wolfsberger shifted to Budapest

As confirmed by the club’s official website, Tottenham will travel to Budapest to play the first leg of their Europa League last 32 tie against Austrian side FC Wolfsberger.

The match was originally scheduled to take place at the Worthersee Stadion in Klagenfurt. However, the COVID-19 regulations in Austria mean that it is no longer an option. UEFA have now decided to shift the match to the Puskas Stadium in the Hungarian capital.

The return leg is pencilled in for 24th February and will be held at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London.

Tottenham Hotspur will travel to Budapest to play the first leg of their Europa League last 32 tie against Austrian side FC Wolfsberger.

Europa League tie between Tottenham Hotspur and FC Wolfsberger shifted to Budapest

Spurs are just one of three English sides who have been forced to play their away leg at a neutral venue. Arsenal face SL Benfica in Athens while Manchester United will travel to Turin to take on Real Sociedad.

The change in venue will see Spurs endure a slightly longer flight to Budapest. Though it is not a huge distance, it remains to be seen if it will have an impact on our preparations for West Ham United. Jose Mourinho’s side take on their London rivals on the 21st February.
