It’s been six years since the last time Fiorentina he had played a European match. It was the 2016/2017 season and the Viola came out in the round of 32 of the Europa League at the hands of Borussia M’Gladbach. Tonight, at 21:00, the team coached by Vincenzo Italiano will try again to win a place outside the Italian borders. Up for grabs access to the Conference League groups, which Fiorentina will compete with Twente, who overtook Cukaricki, a Serbian club, in the previous qualifying round. The first of the two matches will be played at the Artemio Franchi stadium, the return leg, next Thursday in the Netherlands. A draw that was certainly not benevolent with Fiorentina as the Dutch started the season in the best possible way with four wins in as many games.
ITALIAN CHOICES – The former Spezia coach will not be able to count on the whole squad; toIn fact, Igor is still absent as well as Zurkowski. Nastasic will take the place of the Brazilian defender next to Nikola Milenkovic. Many changes compared to the match against Cremonese; tadorns Nico Gonzalez from the first minute, kept at rest in the league debut. Still bench for the new Dodò signing with Venuti who will have a chance in the right lane. In the middle of the field, both Bonaventura and Mandragora are out. At the center of the attack, Italian focuses on Arthur Cabral with Luka Jovic who therefore initially starts off the bench after his debut with goals in the league.
