UCL Match Preview : Tottenham vs Gent

Thursday, February 23rd, 2017

Tottenham fell to a disappointing 1-0 loss at Gent last week and have it all to do if they are secure a spot in the last-16 of the Europa League. A 3-0 win at Fulham on Sunday certainly boosted morale coming into the welcome of the Belgian outfit.

Gent’s victory over Spurs is their only win in their last four competitive fixtures. Despite holding the advantage, the Belgian side come into the tie as underdogs.

While Spurs succumbed to a loss in Belgium, they have the means to overturn the deficit at Wembley on Thursday night.

UEL Match Preview : Fiorentina vs Borussia M.Gladbach

Fiorentina have the ascendancy in this tie after picking up a 1-0 win away to Gladbach in the first leg. They should be confident of seeing out this match having only lost at home once all season in all competitions.

Gladbach have it all to do in this match. They are unbeaten in their last four away matches and have kept a clean sheet in three of those, but they have only won two of seven previous matches in Italy.
