NS Mura v Spurs – how to watch, team news, key information
Thu 25 November 2021, 11:45|Tottenham Hotspur
We’re in Slovenia to take on NS Mura on matchday five in the group stage of the Europa Conference League this evening (Thursday 25 November, kick-off 5.45pm UK).
Mura are bottom of the table without a point to their name after four games, while we’re currently second on seven points – one point above Vitesse and three behind leaders Stade Rennais. Victory on Thursday could see us qualify for the latter stages of the competition with a game to spare, if Stade Rennais also beat Vitesse.

Also sidelined are Cristian’s fellow countryman Giovani Lo Celso and young striker Dane Scarlett.
Meanwhile, Antonio Conte has confirmed that Ryan Sessegnon will start this evening after the England Under-21 international made his return from injury as a second-half substitute in Sunday’s Premier League win over Leeds.
Forward Ziga Skoflek is expected to miss out through injury for Mura while Amadej Marosa could lead the line after netting in the 1-1 draw against Domzale at the weekend.
Who is the referee and what colours will the teams be playing in?
Portuguese referee Antonio Emanuel Carvalho Nobre will take charge of this evening's game in Slovenia.
He'll be assisted by Pedro Ribeiro and Nelson Filipe Vila Pereira, with Fábio Oliveira Melo as the fourth official.
Mura will play in black and white striped shirts with black shorts and socks, while their goalkeeper will be in all blue.
We’ll be playing in our purple third kit, with our goalkeeper in green.
What will the weather be like?
