Hearts boss Paulo Sergio expects tough Spurs Europa test

Hearts boss Paulo Sergio expects a "big challenge" when his side take on Tottenham in the play-off round to reach the group stage of the Europa League.

Spurs, who finished fifth in the Premier League, travel to Tynecastle to take on Hearts on Thursday, 18 August.

Sergio's first game in charge of the Jam Tarts was the second-leg win over Hungary's Paksi, which set up the Tottenham tie.

But it will not be the first time he has taken on Spurs boss Harry Redknapp the two did battle last season when the Portuguese was in charge of Sporting Lisbon.
