Batistuta wants Europa derby

Fiorentina legend Gabriel Batistuta would love to see a Europa League derby between his old side and Juventus.

Both sides are in the competition’s round of 32 and will face each other if they both progress to the Last 16.

La Viola’s former Argentine forward would love to see a match-up between two of Italy’s current top four teams.

“The final is in Turin, so Juventus will be the favourites to get to the final,” Batistuta told Il Mattino.

“Napoli have the squad to do make it too but keep an eye on Fiorentina.

“This trophy is one of the Viola’s targets. If we got an Italian derby between Fiorentina and Juventus, it would be a great battle.”
