First leg score: Fiorentina 2-1 Twente
Following last Thursday’s first leg at Stadio Artemio Franchi, this tie remains firmly in the balance.
Fiorentina raced out of the blocks, Nicolás González breaking the deadlock with less than two minutes on the clock, before Arthur Cabral made it two on the half hour mark.
However, mid-way through the second period, Václav Černý halved the deficit for Twente; 2-1 is how it finished in Florence.
So, it’s all to play for in Enschede.
Fiorentina are competing in UEFA competition for the first time since 2016/17, having finished seventh in Serie A last season.
I Viola reached the European Cup Final in 1957, won the Cup Winners’ Cup in 1961 and were beaten in the UEFA Cup Final of 1990.
Now, Vincenzo Italiano is just hoping to lead this historic club into their eighth modern-day group phase.
FC Twente meanwhile have already had to get past Čukarički just to get this far, running out 7-2 winners on aggregate.
The Reds have previously qualified for four group stages, the most recent of those coming a decade ago.
So, this clash at De Grolsch Veste should produce fireworks between two clubs desperate to progress.
