FT: WAC 1-4 Spurs. Goals from Son, Bale, Lucas and Vinicius give the Lilywhites a commanding first leg lead. Liendl pulled one back from the spot for the Austrians.
Two minutes added.
- GoalCarlos ViníciusTottenham Hotspur
GOAL! It's four! Carlos Vinicius stabs home Lamela's header from close range.
- Yellow cardPierre-Emile HøjbjergTottenham Hotspur
Spurs are playing a bit of keep-ball now. Will they spring forward and snatch a fourth or make-do with three?
After five defeats in their last six, this will be a much-needed win for Jose and Co.

WAC CHANGE: Pavelic on for Novak.
Mourinho hasn't brought any of the youngsters on which reflects how the second half has gone. He wants to make sure of a strong first leg result.

Super block! Henriksson gets his body in the way to deny Spurs what looked like being the fourth.
Alli threatens again. He takes down a deep pass, cuts inside from the left but sees his tame curler easily saved.
Alli chests down a high ball into the box but can't get it under control to have a clear strike at goal.
Almost 3-2! Wernitznig rattles the crossbar from 12 yards. So close.
This has been a much closer half. Mourinho will be slightly disappointed by how his side have allowed the Austrian to get a small foothold in the contest. Spurs remain very dangerous when they attack though.

Spurs are readying a double change. The hosts have looked more of a threat since pulling a gal back. Tottenham could do with grabbing a fourth just to reassert the clear dominance from the first 45.
- Yellow cardSven SpranglerRZ Pellets WAC
Sprangler booked for tripping Lucas as he looked to go on another mazy run.
Kofler comes way out of his area to deal with a long ball. It gets caught under his feet and Bale almost has a gift. The keeper recovers and it works out as an outrageous dummy of sorts!
That's five goals in six games in this competition for Liendl.
- Goal by penaltyMichael LiendlRZ Pellets WAC
GOAL! Liendl coolly sends Lloris the wrong way from the spot.
- Yellow cardMoussa SissokoTottenham Hotspur
PENALTY TO WAC. Sissoko on Wernitznig. Sissoko booked.
Wernitznig has a chance but can't keep his effort down from inside the box.
Spurs have been probing but Kofler produced a smart save to deny Bale another a moment or two ago.

- End of 1st Half
HT: Wolfsberger 0-3 Spurs.
Wernitznig curves it over the wall but sees his fine effort tickle the roof of the net. That will be that for the first 45.
One minute added. WAC win a free kick on the edge of the Spurs area. It's left of centre.
VIDEO: Lucas makes it three.
- Yellow cardDele AlliTottenham Hotspur
Alli booked for accidentally clipping his opponents ankles as he worked hard to win the ball back.
Fair to say you can see that Spurs are 109 places above Wolfsberger in the UEFA club coefficients.
Liendl digs out a dangerous low shot from 25 yards but Lloris dives to his right to make a smart save.
- GoalLucas MouraTottenham Hotspur
GOAL! Lucas Moura gets in on the act with a stunning solo run that sees him charge in from the left, bamboozle a couple of defenders and fizz a low shot beyond the keeper.
DID YOU KNOW? Tottenham are undefeated in all six of their European games against Austrian sides, winning once and drawing once with LASK in the group stages this season.
Spurs are enjoying themselves when they attack. More clever play from Alli leads to a chance for Winks to take aim but his 25 yard effort is straight at the keeper.
CLOSE! Lloris brilliantly stops WAC from reducing the arrears by clawing Vizinger's powerful header onto the bar.
- GoalGareth BaleTottenham Hotspur
GOAL! Bale makes it two. The Welshman leaves Scherzer for dead with a sublime turn before firing a clinical shot into the far corner.
Bale cuts in from the right but his curling cross swirls too high and allows Kofler the chance to come off his line and pluck it out of the air.
WAC provide a reminder that they could yet pose Spurs problems if given the opportunity. Dejan Joveljic turns beautifully in the box but his low shot lacks punch and Lloris is able to make a simple stop.
Dier meets the resulting right-wing corner but can't get his header on target.
Alli nutmegs his man close to the left byline. He wastes little time looking to score with a low shot, but it deflects off a defender's leg and just misses the far post.
GREAT STAT: That was Bale's first Spurs assist since April 2013!
Mourinho clearly wants his side to get the job done in leg one in the context of the tie. He's keen for his team to hit the goal trail.
Lucas tries to double Spurs' money but turns down the overlap of Davies before rifling wide of the near post from 22 yards out.
- GoalHeung-Min SonTottenham Hotspur
GOAL! Son adjusts neatly to guide a low header into the far corner after lovely play from Doherty and Bale on the right. Bale with the assist.
Son has had the best attempt so far.
WOLFSBERGER DANGERMAN? Michael Liendl has netted four goals in his five games in the competition so far. On Matchday 2, he became the third oldest player (35 years, four days) to score a hat-trick in the Europa League behind Zlatan Ibrahimović and Aritz Aduriz.
Son gets a sight of goal 25 yards out but curves just wide of the far post. Spurs have been dominant from the kick off here.
Almost the perfect start for Alli. He races after a long ball but Alexander Kofler comes flying off his line and does enough to deny the midfielder on the far right of the area.
DID YOU KNOW? Spurs are featuring in their 10th different Europa League knockout tie, though they've not won the first leg in each of their past seven knockout matches in the competition since a 3-0 first-leg triumph over Inter Milan in the 2012-13 last 16.
- 1st Half
KICK OFF! Wolfsberger get us underway.
Will Bale let his football do the talking tonight?
Feldhofer on Jose: "He is probably one of the most successful coaches, he has won with a lot of different teams and won a lot of competitions, but the game is not Mourinho v Feldhofer, it is Wolfsberger v Tottenham. We looked at everything, every player, every formation and tactics. They are a very physical team, playing with a lot of individual things. They are very tactical, which is what you would expect from a Mourinho team."
Wolfsberger coach, Ferdinand Feldhofer: "I accept the situation, but we would have preferred to play at home. It would have been better if Tottenham could have worked out a situation where they could have come to us but we will manage in Budapest. There is no advantage to playing here because we have more work to get here, a longer journey and more travel. It is just how the coronavirus situation is forcing us to work, so we accept it."
Jose Mourinho: "I don't feel any pressure. It is about responsibility, ambition and motivation - not about pressure. It's a very long competition, and for us, it will be the 10th match we will have played in the Europa League which is crazy as we're not even at the half-way stage yet. So for all these reasons it's a very difficult competition to win but is a competition we must have the ambition and the motivation to win as well as the responsibility to go with a strong team to get an important result."
Erik Lamela, who is on the bench for Spurs tonight: “The next few games are very important for us. Everyone knows that and if I get the opportunity, I will give my best to help us progress in the Europa League. I think I can still do better to help the team. That’s what I’m looking to do.”
Wolfsberger pretty much stick with the players that saw them through the group stage. Spurs are without Kane, but Mourinho gives opportunities to Bale and Alli.
