Esbjerg ‘have Viola chance’

Esbjerg Coach Niels Frederiksen has warned Fiorentina that it would be a mistake to underestimate his side ahead of the Europa League tie between the teams.

The Danish outfit have already secured famous victories against St Etienne and Standard Liege in this season’s competition.

“It would be a mistake to think that Fiorentina have already defeated us,” Frederiksen said at his pre-match Press conference.

“We could have a chance, but the whole team must give a really good performance.

“We must not take risks, our aim is to not gift them any opportunities.

“The Viola always have high ball possession and excellent attacking players.

“We must counter that by being organised and not leaving each other one against one with their players.

“We have strengthened in the transfer window but we haven’t played a competitive game since December.”
