The Line: Fiorentina 5/2 Draw 12/5 Juventus 11/10
Coppa Italia action from Florence on Tuesday night as Fiorentina take a 2-1 lead into tonight's home game with Juventus. Fiorentina are one of the form teams in Serie A having lost only one of their last fifteen in all competitions. Fiorentina have not lost at home since losing1-0 to Napoli in November. The addition of Salah in the January transfer window looks to have been one of their best decisions in the transfer market this year. With Salah and Gomez,Fiorentina have a genuine threat going forward. Fiorentina know a draw is enough to get through tonight and with their solid defence I think they will fancy their chances against the league leaders Juventus.
Juventus havewon five in a row since losing to Fiorentina in the first leg of this Coppa Italia semi final, their one and only loss at home this season. Carlos Tevez is having a sensational season and is probably making a statement considering Argentina left him out of their World Cup squad, a decision that could well have cost Argentina the World Cup. Tevez is a sensational footballer and has been brilliant everywhere he's played. WithTevez, Llorente and Morata up front there is an abundance of goalscoring talent here but they face a really tough task here against a good Fiorentina team.
Going to take Fiorentina +1 here. While I think Fiorentinamaystruggle to win the game out right, they dont have to. A draw is enough is enough for Fiorentina to make it through to the Coppa Italia final. I am taking the home team on the handicap as I think they do enough to get through to the final.
