Betting Tip: Fiorentina +0.50 @ 9/8 with bet365

Few Tottenham supporters are massively bothered about exiting the FA Cup, although Saturday’s reverse at the home of Crystal Palace illustrates that White Hart Lane is not a fortress this season.

The Eagles created plenty of chances when winning 1-0 and Fiorentina will be encouraged by the way that Spurs were snuffed out by their London rivals, with the Italian side arriving off the back of a seven-match unbeaten run.

There wasn’t much between the two teams last week as they played out a 1-1 draw in Florence and Nacer Chadli’s first-half penalty means that Spurs are in the ascendancy by virtue of having the away goal.

That said, Fiorentina claimed a 3-2 win at Atalanta on Sunday to warm up for this contest and they had the better scoring chances in the first leg, with a second-half display that will encourage their supporters they can edge out their English opponents.

Mauricio Pochettino will consider how many players to rest ahead of Sunday’s clash against Swansea as Tottenham look to continue their title tilt, with Dele Alli and Harry Kane among those who might be rested.

The fact that they face a team who sit third in Serie A and with a realistic chance of victory themselves means that we have to take La Viola on the handicap.
