Tottenham Hotspur v Fiorentina Preview, Europa League, Last 32 2nd Leg, Thursday 25th February 2016.

You have got to say that the first leg in Italy has to be a great result for Tottenham Hotspurs as Fiorentina themselves are in some great form right now with them currently sitting in third, only six points behind leaders Juventus. Bad news for Tottenham at the weekend however when they were knocked out of the FA Cup 5th round against fellow Premiership side Crystal Palace.

Before the weekends game and the 1st leg in Italy, Spurs had won their previous four games with three league and an FA Cup victory against Colchester United. If it stays goalless on Thursday or Tottenham manage a win then its into the next round for the London club, something they failed to do last season in the same round, and against the same opponents.

Fiorentina will have their work cut out on Thursday night when they come to England and know they have to at least score the one goal to even up the odds. It is a possibility even though Spurs have only conceded four goals in the last six games in all competitions.

Last weekends Serie A game against Atalanta away from home allowed Fiorentina to keep up the pressure on current league leaders and champions Juventus, and it also helps make up from the points dropped previously to Bologna when the game ended 1 – 1. Opponents Tottenham will be the favourites for the win tonight and only a solid performance will do if the Italians wish to progress.

Tottenham Hotspur Team News:

Spurs have a number of injuries right now with Jan Vertonghen likely out for some time due to ligament damage to his knee, while Clinton N’Jie is also missing with a knee issue. Harry Kane has been ruled out due to a facial injury after he broke his nose. But will be back to play Swansea City in the league. Dembele Moussa was subbed after he pulled his groin in the loss against Crystal palace and Thomas Carroll is a doubt with a cut on his Achilles.

Fiorentina Team News:

Fiorentina are close to a full team with no new injury woes for the Italians. We could possibly see Mauro Zarate start ahead of Nikola Kalinic with the player grabbing the winner in their weekends five goal thriller against Atalanta.

Tottenham Hotspur v Fiorentina Head to Head Statistics:

The two clubs make this their fifth head to head battle with the Italians Fiorentina enjoying the better results. I say this because although they have beaten each other once each and drawn twice, it is the Italians win that has more importance with it being last years Europa League competition, and a result that see Spurs knocked out of the competition.

Previous Average Goals Per Game Statistics

There have been a total of eleven goals scored in the four head to head battles so far played out, which is going to give us a goals per game average of 2.75. The last three games played out suggest its more like two goals scored per game although I will go for the below option for Thursday nights game.

Tottenham Hotspur v Fiorentina Match Predictions, Banker Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets

Europa League 2nd Leg action Thursday night will see home side Tottenham Hotspurs welcome Italians Fiorentina who themselves are having an exceptional season in Serie A. The game can be viewed live on BT Sports and in High Definition and is certainly a game to watch with both clubs enjoying their football right now.

Tottenham Hotspurs didn’t however enjoy last weekend when they lost 1 – 0 at home to fellow Londoners Crystal Palace. If it was in the league they could of been excused as they then try to make up the point difference. Yet sadly for Spurs it was in the FA Cup 5th round and the results see’s the club knocked out for yet another season.

Fiorentina are fighting on a fair few fronts right now with them only six points behind Juventus in Serie A, although I am not sure they have it in them unless Juventus go back to the bad form they experienced at the start of the season. They are out of the Coppa Italia after being beaten by Carpi 1 – 0 at home, so staying in the Europa League Cup is certainly a must.

Two hard games coming up for Fiorentina after this trip to London with Napoli at home and then away from home to Roma who are just two points behind them in the table. The club know they need a solid performance on Thursday if they wish to repeat what they did against Spurs last season.

My predictions for this game does lean more towards the draw although part of me also thinks Tottenham Hotspurs do have it in them to grab their revenge after being knocked out by the Italians in the years Europa League last 32 knockout stage. So for my banker I feel going for both teams to score and draw could be a good option.

For my second prediction I am going to back the home side to win and progress into the next round and plan to take a correct scoreline of Tottenham to win 2 – 0 on the night. It is a long shot but we all know that if Spurs do play well then they are exceptional all over the park.
