Louis Saha believes Tottenham Hotspur have a great chance to win the Europa League this season.

Spurs booked their place in the Europa League last-16 draw thanks to a 4-1 aggregate win against Fiorentina at White Hart Lane on Thursday night.

Tottenham were rewarded with a last-16 clash against Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund, with the first and second legs taking place on 10 and 17 March.

Speaking to ITV Sport ahead of Friday’s last-16 draw, former Spurs striker Saha talked up the potential of Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

“They show a real team spirit. Sometimes you wonder if they can go all the way. They have the youth and the legs. They have confidence. I love them. I expect them to really challenge,” Saha told ITV Sport.

Spurs midfielder Ryan Mason made the breakthrough in the 25th minute as the England international put Mauricio Pochettino’s side 2-1 ahead on aggregate.

Former Roma midfielder Erik Lamela added a second for the north London side before Fiorentina skipper Gonzalo Rodriguez scored an own goal in the second half.
