[Video Goals] Tottenham 1-1 Fiorentina: Soldado Goal Not Enough As Spurs Held

By on February 19, 2015

Roberto Soldado’s early strike wasn’t enough as Tottenham Hotspur were held to a 1-1 draw by Fiorentina at White Hart Lane in the first leg of their Europa League last 32 tie on Thursday evening.

Spurs got off to the perfect start when Soldado was on hand to fire home a volley from 15 yards following a Christian Eriksen corner in the 6th minute.

However, Fiorentina levelled things up before half time as Jose Bastanta poked home the equaliser after Hugo Lloris could only parry Matias Fernandez’ free-kick back into open play.

Both sides had chances to grab a winner after the break but no further goals were scored and now Tottenham will head to Italy next week knowing they’ll need to score at least once to have a chance of qualifying to the last 16.
