But is it a wise one...?
The north London side drew 1-1 with the Italian outfit at White Hart Lane, despite an early dominance that suggested Tottenham could go on to score two or three.
That means Vincenzo Montella's men will contest the second leg with an away goal; a 0-0 draw will therefore suffice to ensure progress to the next round of the European knockout competition.
But Spurs boss Pochettino has hinted that his team will attack the Serie A side next week just like they did in the first leg, suggesting both sides will showcase their similar philosophies and play an open game in Florence.

Is that, though, a wise suggestion from the Argentine - or could he take a leaf out of Jose Mourinho's book when it comes to European away days?
If Tottenham do play their natural attacking game at Fiorentina, they risk conceding goals aplenty in Italy.
At the same time, however, keeping things tight at the back could prove risky if Montella's side only need a 0-0 draw to go through...
What would you do if you were in Pochettino's shoes?
