Montella wary of EL group

Fiorentina Coach Vincenzo Montella has admitted that his side face some ‘challenging matches’ in the Europa League this season.

The Viola were drawn against Dnipro, Pacos de Ferreira and Pandurij in the group stage of the tournament.

And the tactician has conceded that his men will not underestimate their opponents.

“Dnipro are a well-oiled team and beat Napoli twice last season,” he explained to the club’s official website.

“Pacos were the surprise of the Portuguese League last term, finishing third, whilst Pandurij qualified by beating Braga – and they were in the final two years ago.

“They are going to be some challenging game. We will not underestimate anyone.”
