Gent Vs Tottenham Live Online Commentary
KAA Gent qualified for the UEFA Europa League last 32 stage from a difficult group that included Ukrainian team Shakhtar Donetsk and Portugese side Sporting Braga. They haven’t won any of their games against these strong sides as they lost twice to Shakhtar and drew both matches against Braga. However two crucial victories against Turkish squad Konyaspor were enough for Gent to qualify from the second spot. Their best ever run in Europe was in the 1991/92 season when they made it to the quarter finals of the UEFA Cup, before bowing out to Ajax. As regards injury news, central defender Noel Naby Soumah is still missing with his heart condition.
On the flip side, Mauricio Poccettino’s men are coming after finishing third in their UEFA Champions League group stage. It was a terrible performance from the English club, who finished way behind AS Monaco and Bayer Leverkusen in the group standings. The North London side reached the round of 16 of the last season’s Europa League and were knocked out by Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund. Tottenham were UEFA Cup winners on two occasions. They are crowded champions in the first ever edition of the UEFA Cup on 1971/72 and the second one came in 1983/84 season. They defeated the Belgian side RSC Anderlecht in 1984 on penalties after both legs of the fixture ended in 1–1 draws. Touching Spurs’ team news: defensive duo Jan Vertonghen and Danny Rose and midfielder Erik Lamela are all doubtful ahead of this match.
