Tottenham face a tricky test as they prepare to face Vitesse Arnhem in the Europa Conference League.
Spurs have got off to a good start to the group stage campaign after collecting four out of six possible points in their opening two matches.
With an emphatic 5-1 victory over NS Mura in their last game, the hope is that a victory over Dutch team Vitesse will be enough to put them on track to advance to the next round.
Vitesse is having fun this quarter and finds himself in sixth place in the Eredivisie and hopes to obtain valuable results.

Vitesse Arnhem v Tottenham: team news
Daan Reiziger is the only doubt for the Dutch side.
The goalkeeper could miss Spurs’ visit, but Vitesse have a fit squad available for the Europa League clash.
Tottenham are set to leave the 11 players who started against Newcastle in England as Nuno Espirito Santo look to turn his squad around.
The Spurs could therefore welcome Ben Davies and Steven Bergwijn in the starting XI.
Both players reached the bench in Sunday’s win over Newcastle and a clash with the Dutch side could be the perfect opportunity to sharpen their acuity with the first team.
Matt Doherty is dubious after injuring himself on international duty while Ryan Sessegnon is absent with a long-term problem.
Vitesse Arnhem vs Tottenham: what was said?
Explaining his decision to leave 11 players at home, Nuno said: “We have been working today, we are preparing the game with the players who will start tomorrow.
“Then we had a good training session with players who are going to stay. They are going to work tomorrow and then we will join the whole group on Friday.
“All of them come with risk and it’s about trying to analyze and see what’s best for us in terms of the process.
“We have another game next week, it’s about respecting all competitions, all games.
“We think it’s better for us to leave the players behind, to recover well so that they can compete better on Sunday. If you think about risk, you won’t decide.
