The Europa League reaches its climax of its manifestation, and we find the sixteenth-finals an interesting challenge that sees the hosts of Gent house the English Tottenham.
The Belgian side Gent have qualified to the Europa League Round of coming second in Group H. Essentially, it was the draw got the final day with Braga (the team with which he was playing access to the knockout stage). Lately the Belgians are holding a swinging rhythm: it goes by the victories of Brugge and Charleroi to the defeat, the last, suffered at home the week against Eupen, thirteenth in the Jupiler League. Gent is currently ranked eighth in the league, at an altitude of 40 points.
Brits are also coming to this challenge with a defeat. The team coached by Pochettino has in fact been defeated 2-0 by Liverpool. With this KO snapped a streak of 11 unbeaten (two draws and 9 wins). Tottenham fell in the Europa League after finishing third in Group E of the Champions League. Despite this setback with the Reds, we believe that guests have more chances to go through than the Belgian.
Previous: no head to head between the two teams so far.
For this meeting, we want to focus on the guests, advising the outcome 2 paid 1.77 on Eurobet. They have all the credentials to bring home success, with Kane and fellow determined to do well in this edition of the Europa League. We do not expect an especially thrilling game of the goal level, with two teams that treat well the defensive, trying to expose as little as possible to counter-attacks opponents. For this we recommend as the second prediction played.
