Looking to sign their campaign off with three points and a spot in the top half of the standings, Fiorentina will make the trip to a rock-bottom SPAL on Sunday evening.

Starting with the hosts, putting in another torrid display in midweek and coming under more scrutiny, it has been nothing short of a disastrous campaign for SPAL. Blown away in what was a thumping 3-0 defeat against Verona on their travels earlier in the week, I Biancazzurri have already confirmed that they will be lifting the wooden spoon this summer. Long since confirming their spot back in Serie B, Head Coach Luigi Di Biagio has seen his side remarkably pick up just a pair of points over their last 11 appearances since making their return from football’s enforced break. Regarded to be one of the worst sides to feature in a top-flight campaign in recent memory, SPAL have also gained an unwanted reputation for their continued issues on home soil. In the midst of a Serie A winless run at the Stadio Paolo Mazza that stems all the way back to the start of October, their worrying problems in Ferrara was highlighted by a 6-1 drumming against Roma a fortnight ago.

As for the visitors, while SPAL might have put in another woeful display earlier in the week, Fiorentina bounced back from their defeat against Roma in some style last time out. Putting on a second-half clinic and inspired by Federico Chiesa’s hat-trick, the Purples picked up a 4-0 romp in midweek and have continued to catch the eye since making their return from football’s enforced break. Losing just one of their last eight contests and also snatching a deserved point away at second-place Inter Milan a fortnight ago, Head Coach Giuseppe Iachini will also be boosted by his side’s eye-catching record against Sunday’s opponents. Including a 4-1 win the last time they made the trip to the Stadio Paolo Mazza, Fiorentina have won each of their last three meetings against the Serie A strugglers and there is no doubt they have a golden opportunity to sign off this year’s campaign on a high this weekend.
