One of the games of the round will see Fiorentina travel to London to take on Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane. The game is finely balanced with the first leg finishing 1-1, a game where Manuel Pochettino put out a weakened side without top scorer Harry Kane. Kane should return on Thursday with Erikson, Dembele and Son likely to also feature. Tottenham are looking to bounce back from a defeat to Crystal Palace at the weekend and in front of a packed White Hart Lane this should be a good game. Pochettino has not stated this publiclybut I think the league game against Swansea will be more to the fore of his mind than the Europa League. Tottenham have a real chance to win their first League title in over 40 years and this will be their focus I think.
Fiorentina followed up their draw with Tottenham with an engaging 3-2 win away to Atalanta. Fiorentina have a small squad but they added some depth in the January window with Zarate and Tello coming in. Illicic, Babacar, Valero will be the key men for Fiorentina with the goals based around Kalinic and Illicicc who are having fantastic seasons both reaching double figures already this season. Fiorentina are a tough team to figure out at times but I like this team and I think they are going to have a say in the Serie A title as well.
Tough but I am going to take the draw here. Tottenham definitely are a quality side but with a real shot at a league title I think they might just be distracted enough to get Fiorentina a point here.
