Our prediction: Lokomotiv Plovdiv v Tottenham

Well, we all know what should happen... but have you ever heard of a scenario more 'Tottenham Hotspur' than losing to Lokomotiv Plovdiv on a Thursday and re-signing Gareth Bale on a Friday?

Spurs will hope for an early goal to ease the nerves of fans expecting a classic upset, while Mourinho will hope for a convincing display to draw the critics away from his side, even for a short while.

Players will still be returning to full fitness, but that can't be used as an excuse in this one. They simply need to win. They will.

Our prediction: Lokomotiv Plovdiv 0-2 Tottenham
