Spurs have been drawn to play against Gent in the last-32 of the Europa League.

The Belgians finished second in their Europa League group behind Shakhtar Donetsk, who they lost both games against.

An unbeaten record against Sporting Braga from Portugal and Konyaspor of Turkey saw Genk progress with eight points. Currently fifth in the Belgian First Division A Table, Gent are in good form, having not lost in their last eight games.

Nevertheless it’s a draw that Tottenham can be pleased with. There were some tough teams that Spurs could have possibly been matched against, but the club can now be confident of making the last-16.

Juggling the Champions League and Premier League has proved difficult, so Mauricio Pochettino will surely be happy to draw a side like Gent against whom he can rotate his squad and still expect to progress.

The first leg will be played on 16th February in Belgium and the second leg will take place on 23rd February at Wembley.
