Fiorentina vs AS Roma Team News

Fiorentina stunned the whole footballing world last time out, holding league-leaders Inter Milan to a one-all draw. They showed impeccable character, overturning a one-goal deficit to bring the game level just before the end of the ninety minutes.

As easy as it gets, Antonio Conte’s men took the lead very early in the game via a routine Borja Valero’s goal. The striker took on the ball before firing into the near post, reminding his former club what they have been missing since his departure.

Inter’s Lautaro Martinez thought he had the ball at the back of the net only to have his goal chalked off. The video assistant referee ran some checks as celebrations were ongoing, spotting Romelu Lukaku to be offside in the build-up.

Teenager Dusan Vlahovic turned savior for Fiorentina in the dying minutes of the game with a sublime solo effort. He took on the ball from his own half, running almost the entire length of the pitch before beating Handanovic in goal, to clinch a point for his side.

AS Roma, on the other hand, saw off the challenge of basement club SPAL with relative ease, edging them out in a 3-1 thrilling encounter in front of the home support. However, this game against Fiorentina will be an entirely different ball game as they will be playing away from home, and against a much trickier opposition.

Paulo Fonseca’s men have logged four wins, three draws and one defeat on their Serie A travels, averaging 1.38 goals per game whilst allowing 0.63 down the other end of the pitch. A fantastic record this cluster have mustered so far this season.

It goes without saying that the visiting contingent are in better shape heading into this fixture and are likely to see off the challenge of Fiorentina, but not without digging really deep.

Injured or Suspended Players:

Fiorentina: Franck Ribéry.

AS Roma: Davide Zappacosta, Javier Pastore, Bryan Cristante, Davide Santon.

Fiorentina vs AS Roma Predictions

It will be unfair to rule La Viola out of this one completely. They showed their credentials on the last match-day holding table-toppers Inter Milan to a frustrating one-all draw.

Now, manager Vincenzo Montella will be spurring his boys on to replicate a similar performance on this ground again, this time against fourth-placed AS Roma. However, the hosts will know they will have their work cut-out in a bid to pull that off.

Given that the visitors head into this game, spotting an incredible away Serie A record, it is hard to see past a win for I Giallorossi. They should edge this one out with a narrow margin.
