Twente vs Fiorentina Prediction

Fiorentina have enjoyed an unbeaten start to their 2022-23 campaign and will look to continue that in the Netherlands. However, Twente have not lost a game at home and will fancy their chances of overcoming their one-goal deficit.

The Eredivisie side struggled in final third in the first leg. With Fiorentina ahead in the tie, they could look to avoid defeat on the night, making for a slow affair ending in a low-scoring stalemate.

Prediction: Twente 1-1 Fiorentina
