Vincenzo Montella and his Fiorentina side were victorious against Tottenham today, punching their ticket to the Round of 16 in the Europa League. However, it came with a price as both Basanta and Fernandez suffered injuries
The viola were one of the five Italian clubs to come out of the Round of 32 today as Mario Gomez and Mohamed Salah led their club to a 2-0 win at home against Tottenham Hotspur.
The result was a joyous one for the club as their battle for hardware goes on into the final sixteen of the UEFA Europa League. However, the night wasn’t entirely perfect as both Jose Maria Basanta and Mati Fernandez each suffered injuries. According to the club’s official site, Basanta suffered an adductor muscle injury to the right thigh while Fernandez suffered a right ankle sprain. Both players will be re-evaluated tomorrow.
Fiorentina have a quick turnaround as they take on Inter Sunday, March 1st. With both players injured, it’s unlikely either will play but that is to be determined in the coming days.
