Fiorentina accepts Tottenham in one of the most interesting meetings rematch of 1/16 finals of the Europa League. The odds for the game offered by the leading bookmaker bet365 are as follows: 2.05 for a home win, with a draw at 3.60 and 3.80 for the victory of the guests.
The team of Tottenham has to work hard to qualify for the second round of the tournament after making household draw of 1:1 against Fiorentina last week. Roberto Soldado gave advance of "spurs", but conceded equalizing after a static position.
There are rumours that Fiorentina will play for a zero draw that will send them into the next phase, but the statistics shows us that "Florentines" are not such type of team. They have only one clean sheet in their last 14 games and at home have not kept their door from the beginning of December.
Tottenham will seek at least one goal to preserve chances and ultimate success in the game. Encouraging for fans of the team is the fact that the boys of Mauricio Pochettino scored goal in every match from the end of December.
The coach of the guests determines this match as a final, but he certainly truly thinks about such, because on Sunday his boys go against Chelsea in the battle for the League Cup in England. Argentinean has to choose the exact composition of these two games so it is very interesting what will be the starting line-up in Florence.
The striker Harry Kane got a break in the first game and now Pochetino has to decide whether to leave him fresh for the battle with the leader in the Premiership.
For the hosts, the goalkeeper Ciprian Tatarusanu misses the meeting because of a back injury and also with trauma is the Spanish midfielder Borja Valero.
The statistic tilts the scales to bet on both teams to score. 13 of 16 matches of Tottenham in all competitions are completed in this way and in 12 of the last 14 matches of Fiorentina too.
The hosts are favorites according to odds, but the team does not perform so strong to their own audience this season. Vincenzo Montella`s boys have won only three of their last ten games in home.
Tottenham has six wins in 12 Premier League away games and two in four games away from home in the Europa League. If Pochettino bet on the strong side in this match, the visitors will not lose.
