The 2014 2015 Europa League

The wearers of the Fiorentina home jersey 2014 2015 have had a fairly successful campaign this year. They are looking at a top-five finish in Italy's Serie A division, and are one of just two Italian teams still contending in the UEL tournament. (Napoli is the other.)

The Lilies started their run in the 2014 2015 Europa League by winning four of their six games in the group stage. Those four wins were enough to put ACF on top of Group K, which also included Guingamp (France), PAOK (Greece), and Dinamo Minsk (Belarus). A home game loss against Minsk, and an away match draw with Guingamp kept the group stage from being perfect for Fiorentina, but victories in their other matches secured the club a spot in the knockout phase.

From there, fans of the club were just given more reason to shop at the ACF Fiorentina store. The Lilies were matched up against England's Tottenham Hotspur for the round of 32, winning the round with an aggregate score of 3-1. Similarly, in the round of 16, they dispatched Roma 4-1.

Dynamo Kyiv

Now, the Lilies are facing off against Dynamo Kyiv for the 2014 2015 UEL quarterfinals. The battle between the two soccer squads began on Thursday, April 16th, at Dynamo's NSC Olimpiyskiy in Kiev.

Kyiv's home side took the lead at the 36-minute mark and held it for the majority of the match. However, ACF's Khouma Babacar managed to save the day (very) late in the game, finally finding the back of the net for Fiorentina at 90+2 minutes. Talk about close calls!

The draw will allow the Lilies to more or less start fresh on April 23rd, when they don the Fiorentina home jersey 2014 2015 for a second quarterfinal leg against Kyiv. And considering ACF's recent tournament trend of following draws with victories, the football team is definitely the frontrunner to progress to the semifinals.

Indeed, Fiorentina is in a similar position now to where they were after the first legs of both the round of 32 and the round of 16. In the 32 round, they drew 1-1 against Tottenham in the away leg, but won 2-0 in the home leg. And in the round of 16, they landed in a 1-1 draw with Roma at home, but beat their fellow Italian football squad 3-0 in the away game leg to progress to the quarterfinals.

Will the club follow a similar trend against Dynamo Kyiv? Tune in on Thursday to find out! In the meantime, you can stop by Soccer Box's ACF Fiorentina store for a new 2014 2015 home jersey, away shirt, or third jersey.
