Tottenham Hotspur could have their work cut out for them in this season's Champions League, having been drawn alongside Barcelona, PSV and Inter Milan in the group stages.

Spurs had a similarly tough draw last time out, but they managed to top a group consisting of Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund, and former striker Darren Bent reckons they have enough quality to advance to the last-16 this season.


"I fancy Tottenham to get out of the group. One to 11 they've got some fantastic players in that squad so I think it's a challenge they will relish," Bent said on Sky Sports News.

"Barcelona will be overwhelming favourites but other than that I think Tottenham have got nothing to fear.

"I think they can go to Inter Milan and get a result, obviously Inter Milan will come over here and get beaten. I think PSV are the team that's going to struggle in that group."

Tottenham got knocked out by Juventus in the round-of-16 last season, as the experience of the Italian giants proved too much for Mauricio Pochettino and his men.

However, they will hope to go one better this term, but they face a tricky test given their rivals in Group B.

While Tottenham aren't one of the favourites to win the Champions League this season, picking up four points against Madrid last season has proven what they are capable of doing on their day, and they will need to display those type of performances on a consistent basis if they are to go far in the competition this season.
