Alejandro Pozuelo's second-half goal sealed Genk a 1-0 home win against Romanians Astra Giurgiu and a 3-2 aggregate victory, while FC Copenhagen's 0-0 draw against Lugogorets in Denmark ensured they went through 3-2 on aggregate.
Jenas said on BT Sport: "I think they've got one of the best starting XIs in the league, but as a squad, I don't think they can compete with the other top teams in the league and that showed tonight".
Tottenham are also in the quarterfinal round of the FA Cup, where they will take on League One side Millwall.
"They did not have a shot in the first half but still got a goal".
Spurs will now focus on domestic matters, with Stoke City visiting White Hart Lane on Sunday.
Spurs host Gent at Wembley in the Europa League looking to overturn a 1-0 deficit from their dismal display in the first leg in Belgium last week.
The Belgian side won the tie 3-2 on aggregate but were helped by Dele Alli's red card in the closing stages of the first half.
Pochettino says he requires no more than 50 seconds to judge whether his team's intensity levels are going to meet his high standards.
"In my point of view, yes, because I'm a coach who likes to play football and win games we deserve to win".
The young attacker is a wonderful prospect, but he has always had an edge to his game and this is not the first time his immaturity has caused problems for Mauricio Pochettino.
It seemed only a matter of time before Spurs grabbed a third, even with 10 men, but instead, it was Gent who snatched a crucial second away goal through Jeremy Perbet in the 82nd minute that put the tie to bed. I think then it deserved the sending off. "Once again we were excited to play today in front of our fans".
Striker Harry Kane netted a hat-trick on that day and the England global will be looking to add to his goal tally in the league at the weekend. Ben Davies continues to look ill-suited to Tottenham's best system, and a European campaign which promised so much back in August has ultimately been fairly embarrassing.
