Tottenham are winless in four matches in Belgium and have only won one of their last seven away matches in the Europa League. Mauricio Pochettino’s side also come into this match off the back of a dreadful 2-0 defeat to Liverpool.
Gent’s results have been disappointing this season but their home form has been strong. They did lose last time out on home soil but that was only their third defeat in 19 home matches in all competitions this season.
Tottenham are favourites to come through this tie but may still have some work to do when they return to London for the second leg.
Gent – No surprises are expected from Gent, who are expected to line up with much of the same team that has got them this far in the competition. Renato Neto is one booking away from suspension. NaijaBet.com
Tottenham – Mauricio Pochettino rotated his squad for the Champions League group stages but should field a very strong team for the first leg of their Europa League clash with Gent and then rotate his players for the FA Cup fifth-round at the weekend.
There could still be chances for the likes of Harry Winks, Moussa Sissoko and Kieran Trippier to start though.
Danny Rose, Erik Lamela and Jan Vertonghen are all sidelined, but Georges-Kévin Nkoudou has travelled with the squad.
There have been over 2.5 goals scored in Tottenham’s last 3games (UEFA Europa League).
