Tottenham host Fiorentina at White Hart Lane in an attempt to beat the odds and secure a substantial advantage for the qualification. Both teams are in contention for next year’s European football, and while Tottenham is on the 6th place, two points away from Europea League, Fiorentina is on the 4th place, which is a guaranteed Europa League place.
The hosts have no missing players, but they will have a busy schedule ahead of them seeing as the return leg of the Fiorentina match comes just several days prior to the League Cup final against Chelsea. Tottenham failed to win the group and allowed Besiktas the honor of emerging as group winners. In Premier League, Spurs have won against Arsenal but ended up losing against Liverpool, which of course does not take away from their status as potential competition winners. Harry Kane and Eriksen are the players to build a match around since everything they do almost always ends in great goals.
Fiorentina won their away games in the group stage, which means that even if the hosts will want something more than a draw then they should very well be able to work around the Fiorentina players with good Premier League football knowledge. Rossi and Bernardeschi did not make the squad due to injuries, and the goals could either come from Mario Gomez, Babacar or Fiorentina’s newest signing Mohamed Salah, brought in to take Cuadrado’s place. The last away match Fiorentina lost was against Parma, and that was because of a one minute lapse in concentration. Viola’s latest result is a 3-1 win over Sassuolo, which marked their 8th match without any loss.
Spurs play better at home, but Fiorentina has players in their lineup that could decide a match and even come from behind to end up winning.
