Gent have enjoyed a pretty interesting Europa League campaign last year when they stunned Tottenham Hotspur in the last 32 round of the competition.
They will start the new season this Thursday against Austrian Altach at GHELAMCO-arena.
De Buffalo’s showed pretty impressive attacking form during their pre-season schedule as they notched three goals in wins over Lens and Beerschot-Wilrijk.
Hein Vanhaezebrouck signed a host of new players for the new season aiming to challenge Anderlecht and Club Brugge in the new term of First Division A. (which is about to kick off next weekend when Gent will play Sint-Truiden in the opening round).
Altach are off to a flying start to the new Bundesliga season as they dispatched Austria Vienna 3-0 on the home patch on Sunday.
Klaus Schmidt’s men did not have troubles easing past Chikhura and Dinamo Brest in two opening rounds of Europa League.
Stefan Nutz, who joined the team this summer from Ried, bagged a goal in three of four previous Europa League fixtures and he will be the main threat for Gent’s goal on Thursday.
