Tottenham begin their trip to the group stage of the Europa League with a trip to France to face Rennes.
Spurs defeated Pacos Ferreira in the play-offs to qualify for the group stages of the inaugural edition of the competition.
Nuno Espirito Santo will likely use the third tier competition – which sits below the Champions League and Europa League – as a testing ground for young stars and fringe players.
However, building a winning mentality could be crucial for Spurs this quarter as they look to fight through a potentially eventful season to claim a top-six spot in the Premier League.
Santo’s appointment and uncertainty over Harry Kane’s future threatened to upend the apple basket, but a strong start to the season has allayed fears around north London.

Our prediction: Rennes vs Tottenham
It won’t be an easy or straightforward clash for Spurs by any stretch of the imagination.
The competition may not yet have any credibility or prestige, but some clumsy teams are waiting to cause upheaval and Spurs should be wary of Rennes.
A rotating XI should still have enough firepower and resilience to come out unscathed, but Rennes will see a great opportunity to capitalize on it.
Our prediction: Rennes 1-1 Tottenham (11/2 To bet365)
