Toby Alderweireld has taken to Instagram to issue a rallying cry ahead of Tottenham Hotspur’s clash against Qarabag on Thursday.

The Belgium international has impressed for the north London side following his move to White Hart Lane in an £11.5m deal from La Liga side Atletico Madrid in the summer transfer window.

Alderweireld helped Tottenham equal a club record after Mauricio Pochettino’s avoided defeat for the 12th successive Premier League game last weekend thanks to a 4-1 win against West Ham United.

The 26-year-old posted the above snap on his Instagram page and wrote the following caption: “Europa League tonight⚽️ #Coys”

Alderweireld scored his second Tottenham goal in their victory over the east London side at White Hart Lane on Sunday afternoon.

Qarabag v Tottenham: Match facts

• Qarabağ are unbeaten in five European home fixtures this season (W2 D3). Ivan Cavaleiro’s equaliser in Monaco’s 1-1 draw on matchday four was the first European goal Qarabağ had conceded at the Tofig Bahramov Republican stadium this term.

• In ten games since Qarabağ entered 2015/16 Uefa Champions League qualifying, they have managed just eight goals and have only once scored more than one in a single match.

• Spurs are without a win in four European away games (D1 L3).

• This is Qarabağ’s second Uefa Europa League group stage campaign. They narrowly missed the cut for the round of 32 last season, having become the second Azeri side to make it to a major Uefa group stage – after Neftçi PFK in 2012/13 – and the first to win a group stage game.

• In seven previous Uefa Cup and Uefa Europa League campaigns, Spurs have only once failed to reach the round of 32 – in 2011/12.

The Belgian netted his first Spurs goal in a 4-1 win against Manchester City earlier this season.
