2015/16 Europa League, Round of 32, 1st Legs


Tonight, my two favourite Italian football teams will have some big European games. Napoli and Fiorentina. Yup, they are my favourite teams, not Juventus and Milan. 😁

These teams are having a great run in Serie A. Napoli are second with 56 points. A point below leader Juventus, and Fiorentina are third with 49 points. Yes, that is a big gap.

I believe Napoli are strong enough to beat Villarreal, given their consistent performances in Serie A. Last weekend defeat by Juventus won’t affect them much.
Meanwhile, I have doubts about Fiorentina. Though they’ve just beaten third place Inter and took their spot last weekend, I don’t think they are strong enough to handle the on-fire Tottenham Hotspur, who were just taking three points out of the Etihad Stadium. Pochettino’s young team are just two points below Premier League’s leaders Leicester City.
But whatever should happen, I will enjoy the games.
