Tottenham Hotspur will face Gent in the round of the 32 of the Europa League this season.

Gary Lineker has taken to social networking site Twitter to give his reaction to Tottenham Hotspur’s round of 32 draw against Gent in the Europa League.

The former Tottenham striker believes that Mauricio Pochettino’s side can win against the Belgian club at the Wembley Stadium in London.

Tottenham featured in the group stage of the Champions League this season.

Much was expected from the North London outfit, but Pochettino’s side failed to progress to the last 16.

The North London outfit finished third in Group E with just seven points from six matches.

Spurs will head into the two-legged Europa League tie against Genk as favourites.

However, the Premier League club should not get complacent, as they have struggled to play well at the Wembley Stadium in London.

It is an unfamiliar ground for Tottenham and it does feel like an ‘away’ match for the team.

Spurs are fifth in the Premier League table at the moment with 27 points from 15 matches, just three points behind fourth-placed Manchester City.

The North London outfit will take on Hull City at White Hart Lane in the Premier League on Wednesday evening.
