Fiorentina look to keep the pressure on Inter Milan when they travel to Palermo in search of a win. Fiorentina havent won away in their last three in all competitions and they could really do with both a good performance and all three points. Guiseppi Rossi's first season back from injury hasnt gone as smooth as he would like with just nine appearances and no goals. If the striker can get back to his pre injury level then Fiorentina could have a real shot at winning the Scudetto. Fiorentina though have alot of quality attackers with Babacar, Kalinic and Illicic all playing well this season in a team that has defied sceptics and stayed at the top end of Serie A since the start of the season. La Viola could be the fairytale story if they can get some more away wins, starting here at Palermo.
Palermo are really struggling at the moment having lost three of their last four games and five of their last eight home games. Palermo really need to stop the rot as they have fallen down the league table and are now just a couple of points above the relegation zone. heavily reliant on striker Gilardinho for goals the team has struggled this season to find the net with just seventeen goals. Also Palermo now face the best strike force in the league as Fiorentina have netted a league best thirty three goals this term.
While Fiorentina have had their ups and downs when on the road I think they will get the win here. As fairytales go Fiorentina winning the scudetto this season would be right up there with Leicester City winning the Premier League. La Viola have a chance but they need to win games like this and continue to pick off their more illustrious opponents when they get the chance. Fiorentina lost 3-1 to Juventus a few weeks back but they actually dominated the game and had the better chances but couldnt take them on the night. I see Fiorentina taking their chances here in this one and getting a win that could possibly send them top.
