Fiorentina 2-0 Tottenham: Second-half double sees Tottenham out of the Europa League
February 27, 2015 (13:55) [ Indexed from A Different League
Fiorentina scored two goals in the second-half against Tottenham to send the Premier League side out of the Europa League, reports BBC Sport.EPAThe first-half between the two clubs was goalless, clear-cut chances at a premium. Tottenham were forced to rest key names for a Capital One Cup final to come in a few days so they werent at their strongest. The Londoners had to score to go through, but they just couldnt conjure a goal. Mauricio Pochettinos men were guilty of an error-strewn showing over the 90 minutes, and individual mistakes f More...

El-oh-El: Do you fancy Fiorentina?
February 27, 2015 (13:40) [ Indexed from Roma Blog
Yesterday Roma managed to defeat Feyenoord in a very heated atmosphere. Next stop on the road to Europa League glory (shut up, you know there's a chance Roma can do it, as slight as it may be) : the Round of 16! Who will Roma face? Let's hope it' s a club with less agressive fans this time around...
Rotterdam obviously is a place where our Vasileios thrives. His two beautiful assists (Adem and Yao say thank you) paved the way for a Europa League away win (seriously, how long has THAT been) and gave the Giallorossi a ticket for the Round of 16. The road to Warsaw is still long but I'm happy: more midweek games, more Roma, more drama, more weight loss. My body is ready.
Enough has been said and writted about the heated game of yesterday. Yes, at one time there was an inflatable banana on the pitch and Gervinho scored an easy goal for once (never underestimate the vitamins of a big banana). After two games, Roma won 3-2 on aggregate and thus continue to the next round. Where Roma can face a lot of interesting opponents: apart from Roma, there are four other Italian teams in the running but you don't play a European tourney just to encounter an Italian team, right?
So, Everton, Zenit, Bruges (yaay, brave little Belgium), Wolfsburg, Dniprotprosomething, Sevilla,... Who's it gonna be? I hope for a team with more respectul tifosi than Feyenoord this time around, I fear the fountains in Rome can't handle another beating like last week... Maybe the Ajax fans can redeem the Dutch image in Europe? Or do you prefer a shorter trip, against a fellow country club like Torino?
*former keeper Jerzy Dudek playing with and grabbing a lot of balls* (for people who watched the UEFA draw live and no, it wasn't as dirty as I just described)
Drum rolls.... The fortunate is FIORENTINA! Boy, we do love teams starting with an F, right?
So, thoughts my dear readership? Do you dig Roma's chances? Love it or hate it? Which teams would you rather have preferred? We avoided some good teams like Wolfsburg, Seville and Zenit. And we don't have to visit cold, harsh countries like Russia or Ukraine.
To be honest, I like this draw. Fiorentina-Roma are always fun and thrilling games. There's the Purple Prince factor (Vincenzo Montella) as well. A short easy trip, plus we first play at the Franchi. A good result there and the quarters are within reach. What if we just ignore the S-word for now and make room for.... the EL-word? Yeah, I just did it. Why not? Roma's DNA screams 'hit or miss', they can easily win and easily lose to every remaining team. The question is: will they show up when D-day arrives? To make things more heated: Roma can avenge their Coppa elmination while they're at it. Perfect.
But first (let me take a selfie), the Bianoneri on Monday! Another D-day. As if the Feyenoord war wasn't enough, there's this certain game still haunting our dreams since October 5. Interesting times ahead of us, boys. Fiorentina and Juventus. A double vendetta coming up.
Fiorentina, yay or nay?
Who cares! As long as Montella becomes Roma's head coach in 2015!
Dunno. Tricky match. It'll be a toss-up.
I adore the singer Prince. So yes to more Purple in my life!
No, the sight of Aquilani in the Olimpico still breaks my soul...
Meh, I rather wanted someone else, like Dnipio, Dnipri, Dnipjo.. Ah, damnit!
