With the tie nicely poised, Tottenham and Fiorentina will have their eyes on moving into the round of 16 of the Europa League when the two teams meet in the last 32 second leg at White Hart Lane, Thursday.
The first leg in Florence, last Thursday, finished 1-1, after Federico Bernardeschi cancelled out Nacer Chadli's first half penalty. While Tottenham would have loved to have walked away from Fiorentina with a victory, they will know the tie is still theirs to be won.
An away goal in European competition is always precious, and if the match ends goalless, the English Premier League side will go through to the last 16.
"You have to take the game with energy and try to score and win the game from the beginning, not play in your head with the result," Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino was quoted as saying by the Tottenham & Wood Green Journal. "It is important for us to feel free and try to win the game -- that is the way to approach it."
Spurs might have been knocked out of the two domestic cup competitions, but they remain well in contention for the English Premier League title, which is an outstanding achievement, considering not many were even tipping Tottenham to finish in the top four.
Fiorentina manager Paulo Sousa believes all of Tottenham's success is down to their manager Pochettino, who has turned this young group of players into a cohesive, we-know-exactly-what-we-need-to-do unit.
"I certainly feel and I believe a lot of us also think that Spurs are one of the very best teams in Europe at the moment," Sousa was quoted as saying by the Evening Standard. "That's from a technical, tactical, mentality and physical point of view. They're a young team, and they're a very hungry team and every time they go out they want to try to impose themselves."
Fiorentina will know this match at White Hart Lane will be a lot tougher than the one from last year, when they came away with a 1-1 first leg draw, before going onto to win 2-0 at home. Sousa is expecting a difficult encounter against a Spurs side bubbling with confidence and belief, even if he believes his team are capable of matching the Premier League side.
"We need to play with a high level of physical and mental intensity and we need to play our game.
"Certainly in the first leg, despite the fact that Spurs are the team that come from this background and culture of being intense, being very strong and being physical, we more than held our own and created problems for them by the way we kept the ball moving."
Team news: Pochettino received a couple of injury blows ahead of this match, with Harry Kane and Mousa Dembele ruled out. While Kane is expected to return for Sunday's Premier League encounter, Dembele is likely to be out for ten days, making him doubtful for the North London Derby against Arsenal Saturday week.
"Harry has broken his nose, he's having an operation today to sort out the problem and he's not available," Pochettino told the club's official website. "Mousa has a small injury in his groin.
Tom Carroll, Jan Vertonghen and Clinton Njie remain on the treatment table, but Hugo Lloris and Erik Lamela make their returns.
Fiorentina have no major injury concerns coming into this game.
