Tottenham defender Ben Davies is pleased with a battling 1-1 draw in Florence in first leg of Europa League last-32 tie
Ben Davies expressed his satisfaction on Instagram after Thursday’s 1-1 draw with Fiorentina in the first leg of their Europa League last-32.
The Wales international played a key role in Florence after the former Swansea City full-back won a first-half penalty, which Nacer Chadli emphatically converted to give Spurs a slender lead.
However, Mauricio Pochettino’s side were unable to prevent the Serie A side from levelling the tie after Federico Bernardeschi equalised in the 59th minute.
But the 22-year-old’s spirits weren’t dampened by Fiorentina’s leveller after he took to Instagram on Friday to reflect on a positive result.
Davies wrote on his Instagram page: “Vital away goal to bring home! Tough game last night, thanks to all travelling fans! 🙌 #COYS”
The Welsh defender has made two assists in 13 Premier League games for the north London side so far this season.
Davies has made a further seven appearances in the Europa League and the FA Cup for Pochettino’s side.
Tottenham host London rivals Crystal Palace in the FA Cup fifth round at White Hart Lane on Sunday afternoon.
