Prediksi Tottenham Hotspur Vs Fiorentina 2014-2015 UEFA Europa League Round of 32

Prediksi Tottenham Vs Fiorentina. The first-leg match will be played at White Hart Lane (North London) on Thursday, the 20 February 2015. This was not a good draw for the Spurs especially considering La Viola's recent run of form. However, Tottenham have a great record at home in this competition over the last few years and should be able to take a lead to Italy.


Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham have not won the Europa League since the 1983-1984 season when the competition was still called the UEFA Cup. They looked poised for a run last season but ran into the eventual tournament runners-up in Benfica, and they will stress learning from their mistakes this go-around. They cannot afford to lose again at White Hart Lane which spelled their doom to the Portuguese champions, and manager Mauricio Pochettino should deploy a strong starting XI here. He will need to convince his troops to have short memories though following their 2:3 defeat to Liverpool last time out, and the lack of experience in this team to do so is admittedly a concern. However, the form of Christian Erikson and Harry Kane has been tremendous, and the hosts are unbeaten in 11 of their last 12 competitive home fixtures, winning 5 of their last 6 at White Hart Lane. While Fiorentina’s form and wide array of attacking options are a worry for the hosts, the Spurs should have just enough to take a lead to Italy next week.


Fiorentina are on a blistering run of form at the moment, going unbeaten in their last 8 competitive matches while managing to win on 6 of those occasions. Perhaps most impressive about this stretch is the fact that they drew against and beat Roma in the span of about a week’s time, and their victory over Sassuolo last time out was just the 2nd time the Calcio-based club lost at home this season. Loaned-in attacker Mohamed Salah was brilliant in his debut start for the club as was promising youngster Khouma Babacar, with the pair accounting for all 3 of their goals. Both have given their manager a real selection headache ahead of Thursday, though it has been speculated that the boss rested a number of his starters for this match. However, White Hart Lane is not an easy place to travel to and the English Premier League is admittedly a step up from the Serie A. Still, things should get interesting here in North London and while unexpected, the visitors certainly have the quality to avoid defeat and even win the match.
