Lamela and Spurs go to Florence needing to score at least one goal after drawing 1-1 at White Hart Lane last Thursday, ahead of their cup final only three days later.
The Argentine winger insisted that the Europa League game is more important though, speaking to MailSport he said, “That game is not as important as this one because that’s a different game.
‘Which one would I rather win? Both.”
Tottenham have own both competitions in their history, having lifted the League Cup four times – most recently in 2008 – while their wait for Europa League glory has been a longer one. Tottenham won the UEFA Cup twice, but the last time being in 1984.
