Jose Mourinho’s side enter their Europa League qualifying campaign after finishing sixth in the Premier League last season and will come up against Bulgarian side Lokomotiv Plovdiv on September 17, just days after facing Everton at home in their opening top-flight game of the new Premier League season on September 13.
Tottenham were knocked out of the Champions League last season by RB Leipzig at the round-of-16 stage, and have been preparing well for the start of their 2020/21 season with wins in friendlies over Birmingham, Reading and Ipswich.
Plovdiv, who finished second in the Bulgarian top flight behind Ludogorets to qualify for the Europa League’s preliminary rounds, disposed of Montenegrin team Iskra Danilovgrad 1-0 to progress to their huge task against Tottenham.
92 teams will partake in the second round of qualifying, with the winners of those games advancing to the third qualifying stage, prior to the play-off round of fixtures which are due to take place on October 1.
The single-legged ties – which will go to extra-time and penalties if needed – will take place on September 17, with all the European clashes being played behind closed doors.
