Terribly disappointing in the Champions League, Tottenham will have to settle for the Europa League. A difficult return to reality for Spurs who thought they had taken advantage of the advent of the duo Alli-Kane to cross a true landing. Still far from being sure to finish in the top4 of the Premier League, Tottenham would however be well inspired to play the blow thoroughly in a competition that clearly has the means to win. Chessed at Anfield by Liverpool (2-0) last weekend, Mauricio Pochettino’s men count on this move to Belgian soil to bounce back. Third of Jupiler Pro League last year, Ghent has honored his place in the Europa League by rallying the sixteenth. A course that was paid at the highest price in a championship whose Buffalos occupy only the 8th place.
