Fiorentina coach Paulo Sousa has spoken of a desire for his team to be more clinical in front of goal in the away fixture with Lech Poznań tomorrow. The viola have already suffered two home defeats in the competition, to Lech two weeks ago and also to Sousa's former team Basel. Currently situated at the bottom of group I, a win is a must in order to keep in touch with the rest. Jakub Błaszczykowski is relishing the chance to play in his native Poland but has warned that the match "will not be easy". Keep an eye out for the heavy fog that caused the closure of the local airport for an hour today, but reports suggest should have sufficiently cleared for the match tomorrow.

Lech Poznań

The Polish side have long term injuries to striker Marcin Robak and winger Dawid Kownacki but otherwise should have a full squad available for selection. After sacking manager Maciej Skorża on 12th October and replacing him with former Poland international Jan Urban, the team has rallied but despite having finished runner up in the league last year, still sit second from bottom this term.
