AS Roma vs Fiorentina Prediction and Betting Preview 26 July 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 2-1
AS Roma vs Fiorentina PredictionWith Champions League football already out of the question, Roma will focus on retaining fifth-spot on the standings as they continue to entertain stiff challenges from the likes of AC Milan and Napoli. Two games left to play; it will take some high-profile bottling from La Lupa to relinquish their top-six status.
Match status: 2019/20 Serie A - Matchweek 36
Venue: Stadio Olimpico (Rome)
Analyzing this Roma team, you wonder where this side got it all wrong. Just two years ago, they were turning heads in the Champions League, steamrolling through to the semifinals of the competition. On the way, they famously sent Spanish juggernauts Barcelona crashing from the tournament.

However, following their mesmerizing performances that season, they received numerous suitors for many of their key players. Leaving no stone unturned in trying to retain their services, they were ultimately robbed off these stars.

Now playing with a rather bang-average squad, the Giallorossi are some way off the heights they had set for themselves previously. With a game against top-half outfit Fiorentina on the horizon, expect a strong showing from Roma as they look to continue their imperious run of form.

AS Roma vs Fiorentina Team News

Given how poor this Roma side have looked at times this season, a Europa League place finish looks in order. They will not be beating themselves up too much about their pretty disappointing campaign, rather looking to finish as strong as possible.

With in-form AC Milan blowing hot on their tails, Roma needed nothing but victory against already-relegated SPAL to blow off some steam, when the two sides clashed few days ago. Huge favorites for the win, La Lupa ensured they didn’t disappoint their fans.

On the front foot for large parts of the game, AS Roma knocked their Serie B-bound opposition for six – yes, literally six. Peres grabbing a brace, a number of players also got in amongst the goals as Fonseca’s men recorded an emphatic 6-1 victory to extend their impressive unbeaten run.

Meanwhile, Fiorentina deserve plaudits for their exploits this season. Prior to the start of the season, who would have envisaged the Purple Ones finishing in the top-half of the standings? Certainly not me. However, the serial relegation contenders currently sit tenth on the log and are soaring high.

Making a trip to the Giuseppe Meazza to take on title-chasing Inter Milan, Fiorentina had nothing to play for, except pride. Holding off the Nerazzurri throughout the match, La Viola managed to grind out a goalless draw, grabbing an important point in the process.

For this fixture, Roma are clear favorites for victory. With Milan lurking behind them in sixth place, they cannot afford any blips to avoid plummeting down the standings. Also, they are on a brilliant run of form, and very likely to clinch maximum points here.

Fonseca’s charges are unbeaten in their last five league games, four of which ended in victories. Interestingly, Fiorentina are also on a five-game unbeaten run, comprising of three draws. As such, it is fair to say both sides are almost equally matched heading into this match.

Roma have the home advantage and will be looking to use the Stadio Olimpico-factor to maximum effect. They know how to win on this ground and this particular fixture should be no exception.

Injured or Suspended Players

AS Roma: Juan Jesus, Davide Santon, Federico Fazio, Antonio Mirante, Cengiz Under, Roger Ibanez and Jordan Veretout, Rick Karsdorp, Mirko Antonucci, Robin Olsen and Alessandro Florenzi.

AS Roma vs Fiorentina Predictions

Roma are high-flying in the league and looking to finish their campaign on a strong note. Even though they have been stringing wins lately, it is important to note that they are coming up against a Fiorentina side known to be affiliated with goalless draws.

Having held Inter Milan to a goalless draw last week, they will be looking to frustrate another top Serie A side in Roma this Sunday. As such, goals, if any, are likely to be in short supply here. Expect no more than two goals between these sides come fulltime.
