Alberto Aquilani is not taking the coming Europa League fixture versus the Spurs as one to prove himself in.
He sees it as just another match for him in the Fiorentina outfit.
There is no doubt that the match is vital, for Fiorentina and for Aquilani too, but, being the wily customer that he is, the Italian does not want to get pressurized by over thinking about it.
Of course the fact that he has played quite a lot of big matches already in his career also helps.
He knows what to do ahead of such matches and how to be fresh by switching off from the game for a while.
Also, Fiorentina has a bit of an advantage having stopped Tottenham on a 1-1 draw in the first leg of the tie which was played at White Hart Lane.
