Spurs crashed out of the Europa League at the last-16 stage last night losing 2-3 on aggregate against Gent after a 2-2 draw at White Hart Lane. Elsewhere on the night there were shocks with Atletico Bilbao going out losing 4-3 on aggregate against APOEL and Villareal also were knocked out by Roma 4-1 on aggregate. However, Celta Vigo experienced better fortunes for the Spanish contingent knocking out Shakhtar 2-0 on aggregate.
Monchengladbach reversed a 1-0 first leg deficit and knocked out Fiorentina winning 4-2 on the night at the Stadio Artemio Franchi, Lyon were far too strong for Dutch outfit Alkmaar winning 7-1 on the night and 11-2 on aggregate and Zenit St Petersburg progressed by the skin of their teeth going through on the away goals rule against Anderlecht after their two legs ended 3-3 on aggregate, but Zenit scored 2 away goals to Anderlecht’s 1.
