Tottenham enter the brand new competition they’d rather not have qualified for – the Europa Conference League – this week, starting with a play-off clash against Pacos de Ferreira.
Spurs, who competed in the Champions League final in 2019, finished seventh in last season’s Premier League campaign, which has seen them drop into the third tier of European competitions. See here for our full Premier League TV schedule.
The Europa Conference League (ECL) will run with a similar format to the Europa League, which has been condensed slightly, to run below the pinnacle of club football, the Champions League.
Supporters may not be delighted with the extra games against far-flung teams, but new boss Nuno Espirito Santo will use the occasions to blood in young talents and offer fringe players the chance to impress.
Pacos de Ferreira are first on the agenda for Spurs. They were promoted to the Portuguese top flight in 2019, finished 13th in 2020 and improved to finish 5th in 2021.

Our prediction: Pacos de Ferreira v Tottenham
Tottenham will be determined to get the job done while exerting themselves as little as possible.
Expect Santo to rotate his squad heavily, offering a big chance for new signings Cristian Romero and Bryan Gil to come into the fold.
A lack of strikers, and a determination not to slip on this banana skin affair, means Son Heung-Min could be one of the few starters from the weekend to keep his place and he should be enough to put Pacos de Ferreira to the sword.
