Full time: Fiorentina 1-1 Tottenham

Advantage Tottenham as we reach half time in this last 32 tie. An away goal in the form of Nacer Chadli's penalty means that despite Federico Bernardeschi's deflected goal, Spurs go into the second leg as the favourites to progress. The hosts began slowly but were rewarded for their improvement after the break with an equaliser. All eyes on Dele Alli who avoided a red card in the first half but kept his calm, like his team, in the second half.

Well that is all we have time for on this live blog. We will have all the reaction from Florence to come but until next time, goodbye.

19:48

Fiorentina twice almost get the winner on the night. Vorm turns palms out Zarate's strike and from the resulting corner Rodriguez flicks a header wide of goal. Two big chances.

19:44

Alonso has the chance to cross from the left but Spurs snuff out the danger and Fiorentina get a corner. Tottenham, in the form of Kevin Wimmer, escape.

Fair to say this game is being firmly overshadowed by the events in Denmark, where Manchester United are being beaten by FC Midtjylland. Around eight minutes left there and in the rest of our ties from the 6pm kick-offs.

Goal: St Etienne 3-2 Basel (Jean-Christophe Bahebeck)

19:33

Fiorentina have made all three of their subs and the most recent of them, Vecino, tkes aim from range but Vorm keeps it out comfortably.

19:28

Goal: Sevilla 3-0 Molde (Kevin Gameiro)

19:27

Harry Kane on for Heung-min Son with around 22 minutes remaining in Florence. The home side well on top, with Tottenham struggling to keep hold of the ball.

19:25

Goal: Anderlecht 1-0 Olympiakos (Kara Mbodji)

19:24

Much better from Fiorentina since the equaliser and that new-found confidence is highlighted by Marcos Alonso's effort from range, which balloons over the bar.

19:18

Goal: Fiorentina 1-1 Tottenham (Federico Bernardeschi)

Spurs seemingly cruising towards a first leg lead before they are hit by the sucker-punch. Bernardeschi is given time to shoot from range and via deflection off the outstretched foot of Mason is flies beyond Michel Vorm. The home side live again.

19:14

Not much has changed from the first half and Tottenham continue to dominate and they could have doubled the lead as Chadli scampers away, cuts inside onto his right foot but see Tatarusanu equal to his near-post effort.

Goal: St Etienne 2-2 Basel (Marc Janko)

19:08

Goal: Sevilla 2-0 Molde (Fernando Llorente)

19:05

Tom Carroll comes off at half time with Mousa Dembele coming on. Not the change that we might have expected. Game back under way and Spurs have the ball in the net as Son heads Eriksen's fres-kick in but he is flagged off side.

18:57

Naturally, plenty of attention on that incident involving Nenad Tomovic and Dele Alli, which saw the England midfield kick through the Fiorentina defender while he was grounded. Alli should have seen red but he remains on the field and the question is now how long with Pochettino persist with him?

18:47

Half time: Fiorentina 0-1 Tottenham

Not a half to store in the annuls of Europa League history but a good one for Spurs, who lead through Nacer Chadli's penalty. Fiorentina have been poor for long periods, with Mauro Zarate coming closest to testing the scorers but missing the target. Very little for Michel Vorm, the stand-in for Hugo Lloris, to do.

18:47

Mauro Zarate was sent off in the weekend win over Inter and maybe it is still praying on his mind as with a presentable chance to equalise with a minute left, he skies the ball over the bar.

18:45

Goal: Saint Etienne 2-1 Basel (Walter Samuel)

18:43

Goal: St Etienne 2-0 Basel (Kevin Monnet Paquet)

18:42

Does Davies standing on Tomovic's out-stretched foot constitute a foul? I am not convinced even if it was a poor looking challenge from the Fiorentina full-back. Meanwhile, the assault on Dele Alli continues after a horrible elbow into the chest from Zarate.

18:38

Goal: Fiorentina 0-1 Tottenham (Nacer Chadli)

Spurs get the away goal their first half performance has deserved, via the penalty spot. Nenad Tomovic dives in needlessly on Ben Davies as he cuts inside in the area, and the Welshman goes down under the challenge. Chadli deputises for Harry Kane, sending Tatarusanu the wrong way. Not totally convinced by the award of the spot kick, but Spurs will not be complaining.
