Fiorentina vs Bologna Prediction and Betting Preview, 29 Jul 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 4-0
Rewinding a couple years back, you will find that Fiorentina were once at the top of Serie A football. Considered a serial top-four side at the time, La Viola represented Italy in the UEFA Champions League very frequently. They were constants in the roster of European competitions.
Match status: 2019-20 Serie A - Matchweek 37
Venue: Stadio Artemio Franchi (Florence)
Between 2012 and 2016, Fiorentina remained a regular fixture within the top-five mix. However, their downward spiraling began in 2017 as they failed to rebuild an already ageing squad. Ever since, they had been dropping steadily with every single season.

Last season, they remained around the drop-zone for large parts of the campaign but managed to secure top-flight survival with some late resurgence. Having finished 16th on the standings, they relieved Vincenzo Montella of his duties – the manager who oversaw this horrendous La Viola campaign.

With Giuseppe Iachini at the helm, Fiorentina looked much improved from the side that almost got relegated the previous term. Already guaranteed Serie A survival, Fiorentina will be gunning for victory over Bologna to try to end their season on a strong note.

Fiorentina vs Bologna Team News

With a staggering 43 points from 36 games, Fiorentina are clearly one of the better bottom-half sides in the league. In fact, they still have a decent chance of finishing in the top-half of the standings, trailing ninth-placed Verona by just three points.

Pitted against high-flying Roma on the last matchday, the Purple Ones needed to be at their best to stand any chances against their superior opposition. With nothing to lose, head coach Iachini must have given his players the leverage of expressing themselves freely on the pitch.

At least, that was what it looked like as Fiorentina looked sharp right from kick-off, always looking to give that forward pass. Giving Roma a run for their money, La Lupa managed to nick the win courtesy of two well-taken penalties to post a narrow 2-1 win on the board.

Meanwhile, Bologna currently sit tenth on the log, the exact spot they ended the previous season. By this, there has probably been no significant progress at the club but the fans will be happy they did not manage to play out a worse campaign.

With their tenth-spot far from secured, Bologna were gunning for a win over relegation-threatened Lecce on the last matchday. Expected to roar to victory, Sinisa Mihajlovic’s men managed to crape past their resilient opposition.

Firing ahead by two goals just inside five minutes, Bologna looked on course for a routine victory. But Lecce rallied around to muster an equalizer soon after. Set up for a frantic end to the game, a late goal from Barrow ensured the Greyhounds headed home with all three points in the bag.

Bologna and Fiorentina are vying for a top-half finish on the log. With the visitors sporting a three-point lead over La Viola, they will be pressing for a favorable result here to remain clear of their stubborn opposition, who are blowing hot on the tails.

The Greyhounds had been on a five-game winless run before their hard-fought win over bottom-three side Lecce few days ago. Also, they have failed to secure victory in each of their previous three games on the road.
