Turning my attention to Serie A this weekend where i have found a couple of games that seem to represent ood value for the punter Fiorentina are the most in form team in Serie A behind league leaders Juventus. The Fiorentina current run is six wins and a draw in the last seven. This is impressive stuff with two of their top strikers Mario Gomez and Guiseppi Rossi currently sidelined with injuries. Matri just joined from Milan and has netted two goals in his first game with the club. It will be interesting to see how the team gels with a few players joinging in this window, Anderson from Manchester United and Matri from Milan in particular.
Genoa are a team that have been great at home and terrible away. Former Fiorentina striker Alberto Gilardino will lead the line for Genoa and has netted eight goals this term, unfortunately for Genoa goals have been a problem and the team has only eight more goals to add to the eight Gilardino has. A trip to Firenze is probably not the ideal game for Genoa right now and coach Gaspirini will be hoping that Genoa's home form can continue and that his team can start to pick up a few more points away from home.
Ten of the last twelve Fiorentina home games have gone over the 2.5 goal mark and while I do think Genoa may come and try to "park the bus" I think there is goals here. Fiorentina's defence has been leaky and Gilardino is lethal when given half a chance. I think Fiorentina come out the right side of a 2-1 win here and I'm taking the overs at close to evens.
