Fiorentina and AS Roma will face each other in Serie A on Wednesday evening. The match at the Stadio Artemio Franchi in Florence is slated to kick off at 7:45pm UK time and promises to be an exiting game of football.

Fiorentina

Fiorentina are not having the best of seasons and are in danger of getting relegated to Serie B at the end of the campaign. Cesare Prandelli’s side are 15th in the Serie A table at the moment with 25 points from 24 matches, just seven points above the relegation zone.

La Viola will head into their game against Roma on Wednesday evening on the back of a 1-0 defeat to Udinese away from home in the league. It followed a 3-0 victory over Spezia at home in Serie A.

Team News:

Giacomo Bonaventura and Christian Kouame will miss the match. Sofyan Amrabat and Lorenzo Venuti are likely to return to the starting lineup in place of Valentin Eyserric and Kevin Malcuit.

AS Roma

AS Roma find themselves fifth in the Serie A table at the moment with 44 points from 24 matches. The former Italian champions are only two points behind fourth-placed Atalanta and are very much in the race for the Champions League places in the league table.

Paulo Fonseca, though, had a disappointing preparation for the match against Fiorentina. After winning against Sporting Braga in the Europa League Round of 32 last week, Roma suffered a 2-1 defeat to AC Milan at Stadio Olimpico.

Team News:

Marash Kumbulla is likely to start for AS Roma. Edin Dzeko and Roger Ibanez are still recovering from muscular injuries.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Fiorentina have scored 25 goals in 24 Serie A games so far this season.
  • AS Roma have scored 48 goals in 24 Serie A games so far this season.
  • Fiorentina have conceded 36 goals in 24 Serie A matches so far this campaign.
  • AS Roma have conceded 37 goals in 24 Series A matches so far this campaign.
  • AS Roma won 2-0 against Fiorentina in Serie A in November 2020.

Conclusion

Roma are the better side and will head into the match against Fiorentina as favourites. The Florence-based outfit are struggling at the moment, and although they will put up a fight, the visiting team are likely to head home with all three points from the encounter.

Prediction: AS Roma to win 2-0

Best Odds: 17/2
