The evening kickoff in Serie A on Monday will see Fiorentina take on Parma at the Stadio Artemio Franchi with Fiorentina looking to move back into fifth in the table and the last Europe League place. Fiorentina had a disappointing collapse against a very good Sevilla team in the Europa League semi final and their potent offence just couldnt get anything going and werent helped by a penalty miss that deflated the team. With a front three of Salah, Ilicic and Joaquan there is enough talent to win against anyone and with Valero and Pizarro sitting behind this is a strong Fiorentina squad that should handle a Parma team that are long relegated.
Parma have actually put in some great performance over the last two months including a win over Juventus and a draw with Napoli last weekend, however most of their big performance have come at home and their away form has been dismal losing their last two away games 4-0. With Donadoni focusing on next season already Parma have brought through some nice young players like Mauri and their biggest focus will be keeping those youngster with which they can build for a promotion push next season.
This one should be pretty one sided in theory but I think Parma have been playing with a freedom of late and I'm going to take both teams to score here. Fiorentina's defence has been prone to the odd nap and at big odds both teams to score looks a value bet with Fiorentina likely to run out winners by a couple I can see them conceding one on the counter attack.
