Tottenham-Gent beats #UEL attendance record

Tottenham Hotspur have broken the UEFA Europa League attendance record after 80,465 turned out at Wembley to watch their round of 32 second leg against Gent.
That bettered the previous high of 75,180 set when Manchester United hosted Liverpool in the round of 16 last term. United have had three of the competition’s top five attendances, all of which have involved an English club. Earlier this season 73,063 were at Old Trafford for the visit of Fenerbahçe, the biggest crowd for a group stage fixture in the UEFA Europa League.
