Tottenham Europa League draw: Spurs learn 2020-21 group stage opponents and fixtures

Tottenham will play Ludogorets, LASK and Royal Antwerp in the Europa League group stage.

Spurs were in pot 1 for the draw, held in Switzerland on Friday afternoon, and were drawn in Group J. 

Bulgarian club Ludogorets have history against English opposition in Europe, having shared a group with Liverpool in the 2014/15 Champions League and Arsenal in the 2016/17 edition of the competition.

Austria’s LASK, meanwhile, were comfortably beaten by Manchester United in the Europa League round of 16 last season – 7-1 losers on aggregate.

Royal Antwerp are making their debut in the group stage of the competition, having won the Belgian Cup last term.

Jose Mourinho’s Spurs were well beaten 4-0 over two legs by RB Leizpig in the Champions League knockout stages last season, but managed to finish sixth in the Premier League to qualify for Europe. 

They will be a force to be reckoned with after adding Gareth Bale to their ranks among other reinforcements this summer.

Here is the Europa League group-stage draw in full:

Group A: AS Roma, Young Boys, CFR Cluj, CSKA Sofia.
