Serie A sides AS Roma and Fiorentina come face to face in the second leg round of 16 of the Europa League at the Stadio Olimpico.

Roma have not been in the best of forms of late, having recorded just two victories in their last 11 Serie A games in 2015.

Although they are still second in the Serie A, they have absolutely no chance of winning the Italian title due to them behind 14 points behind leaders Juventus.

They were also knocked out of the Coppa Italia, following a 0-2 defeat the hands of Fiorentina.

Now their only hope of winning a piece of silverware this season is the Europa League.

Following their exit from the Champions League after finishing third in their group behind Bayern Munich and Manchester City, Roma have managed to reach the last 16 of the Europa League following a 3-2 aggregate win against Feyenoord in the round of 32.

Roma have a slight advantage ahead of this fixture due to them having scored an away goal at Fiorentina in the first leg, which ended in a 1-1 draw.

Now the Giallorossi only need a record goal-less draw in the second leg to progress to the next round of the competition.

And Roma boss Rudi Garcia insists that his side will be doing "everything" to progress to the quarter-finals of the Europa League.

"We want to go on in the competition. We will do everything we possibly can to get to the quarter-finals," said the 51-year-old Frenchman.

"We have to concentrate on this match because the UEFA Europa League is a very important aspect to our season. I hope the fans will support us because without them everything is harder."

Meanwhile, Fiorentina will also be hoping to reach the next round of the Europa League despite them being the slight underdogs in this fixture.

The Viola have been doing well this season, having done well in the Serie A, the Coppa Italia and the Europa League so far.

Apart from their recent 0-4 defeat to Lazio, Fiorentina have been doing pretty well in the Serie A (where they are currently in fifth place), recording only two defeats in their last 11 fixtures since the New Year.

They have been doing even better in the Coppa Italia, where they have a very good chance of reaching the finals after beating Serie A leaders Juventus in Turin in the first leg of the semi-finals.

Now they will also be hoping to do well in the Europa League though they are at a slight disadvantage due to them conceding an away goal against Roma in the first leg.

And Viola boss Vincenzo Montella insists that is side are ready for their Europa League clash against Roma.

"Fiorentina are ready for what will be a very important match," Montella told UEFA's official website. "This will be the fifth time we face Roma this season and I don't think either of us will have been happy with the draw. However, you will see a beautiful match. This is a difficult time for Roma, but they have a lot of fantastic players."
