Tottenham have passed Lyon in the previous Eoropa League round.

Last five away games Nerazzurri have finished with 3 straight losses and 2 wins. In the last round of Europa League they have passed through Cluj. They have poor results lately, having won just 3 of their last 12 Serie A games.
Brad Friedel will probably replace Hugo Lloris in goal, as he is a first-choice goalkeeper in cup competitions for Andre Villas-Boas. Clint Dempsey is a big doubt with calf problem. Mousa Dembele should be fit after north London derby. Jermain Defoe has return from injury could replace Emmanuel Adebayor.
Antonio Cassano was involved in scandal with head coach Andrea Stramaccioni, but could return in first-team after he missed the game against Catania. Rodrigo Palacio will lead the attacking line after he scored two late goals this weekend. Stramaccioni’s team is struggling with injuries. Top-scorer Diego Milito is out for the rest of the season.
