Tactical Battles That Will Shape Fiorentina's Clash with Juventus

Fiorentina host Juventus on Thursday in a last 16 Europa League tie that hangs in the balance.

The Viola have a marginal advantage, having come away from the Juventus Stadium with a 1-1 draw last Thursday. 

The Bianconeri are a superior side, of course, but having under-performed in the first leg and with the probable self-belief that Vincenzo Montella's side will have after triumphing in the league 4-2 at the Stadio Artemio Franchi earlier in the season, the result is not cut and dried.

Defeat for Antonio Conte would compound the club's underachievement under his tenure and give the Viola another highlight in what has been a decent season thus far, despite the injuries to Mario Gomez and Giuseppe Rossi.

Here are some tactical battles to focus on.
