Fiorentina coach: Tottenham are one of the best teams in Europe

Fiorentina coach: Tottenham are one of the best teams in Europe

The coach of Fiorentina Paulo Sousa said after the victory against Atalanta to Rai Sport that they are now focusing on the upcoming UEFA Europa League match against Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane in London.

"It 'important to the return of Kalinic goal. Surely this will help to unlock mentally, he lives off goals even if his game has always been important for the team. Today he came good, gave depth and dictated the line. I'm happy for this victory on a difficult pitch and against an organized team. The land did not give us the chance to play fast, but we did well to adapt well and build a major victory."

The Tello goal.
"I'm also happy for him, not only for the goal. He is a very fast player. It is an element that will help us stay the course we are taking."

Can you compete against stronger teams?
"This was an important game. Our game, we have already shown, it allows us to compete with the best teams."

What are the chances of going through on Thursday?
"I saw what we showed in the home leg. Tottenham are one of the best teams in Europe for technical and tactical and physical qualities. We managed to get them to fall to the physical level with a control system game but not ending with a positive result. We believe, my boys are showing that they want to go through."

It will not be an easy tie on Thursday but we do have an away goal which means if Fiorentina do not score we go through. We do seem to be conceding a goal a game though. Wikipedia explains the rule.

Each tie in the UEFA Europa League knockout phase, apart from the final, is played over two legs, with each team playing one leg at home. The team that scores more goals on aggregate over the two legs advances to the next round. If the aggregate score is level, the away goals rule is applied, i.e., the team that scores more goals away from home over the two legs advances. If away goals are also equal, then thirty minutes of extra time is played.

The away goals rule is again applied after extra time, i.e., if there are goals scored during extra time and the aggregate score is still level, the visiting team advances by virtue of more away goals scored. If no goals are scored during extra time, the tie is decided by penalty shoot-out.

I expect Kieran Trippier, Ben Davies, Kevin Wimmer, Toby Alderweireld and Eric Dier to form our defence with the usual shuffling of the attacking options. We need a positive result in this game and then we can concentrate on the next three Premier League games.
