Fiorentina is welcoming Hellas Verona to Stadio Artemio Franchi in round 32 in Italian Serie A.
It’s a miracle, Fiorentina was finally able to win a game, and not only that, Fiorentina hasn’t lost any of their last 2 games. With these 4 points, Fiorentina has given themselves some breathing room and is now in 13th place in the standings with 35 points, 8 points away from the relegation zone. The lack of scored goals is the biggest issue for Fiorentina this season, they only scored 37 goals, while they conceded 43 goals in 31 games. Vlahovic, Federico, and Pulgar are Fiorentina’s top goal scorers with 6 goals each. Pulgar also added 4 assists. Benassi is injured, while Duncan is suspended because of the yellow cards. Despite being outside the relegation zone, Fiorentina is not having a good season and they are in a desperate need of a change, and it’s coming as soon as the season will end, I just hope it’s going to be a positive change. In their last Serie A game against Cagliari at home, Fiorentina has had 61% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, and solid 89% of the correct passes. This match ended in a 0-0 draw. I think Fiorentina is capable of much better soccer, and I hope they start showing it next season because they are hopeless this season.
Verona is the best surprise this season in Serie A, and they are in high 9th place in the table with 43 points. Now, do I think they can reach the Europa League, probably not, but being safely outside the relegation zone, by far, Verona is absolutely satisfied with their season. In their latest Serie A game against Inter from a few days ago, Verona has had 42% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 0 corner kicks, and 76% of the correct passes. This was a roller coaster for Verona as they had 1-0 lead at the half-time but Inter turned the game around in just 10 minutes of the second half. With a goal in the 86th minute, Verona tied the game, and the final result was 2-2. Since the season restart, Verona has 2 wins, 2 draws, and 2 losses, alongside 10 scored goals and 12 conceded goals. Di Carmine is Verona’s top goalscorer with only 6 goals, while Pessina added 5 goals. Darko Lazovic added 7 assists so far. Eysseric, Salcedo, and Borini are injured, while Zaccagni and Pazzini are still questionable for this game. Verona has been inconsistent since the restart, but the most important thing is that they are scoring goals and winning points which is keeping Verona safely outside the relegation zone and in the top half of the table.
Fiorentina has the home record of 3-7-6, while Verona hasn’t won any of their last 7 away games. Fiorentina has played 6 home games in a row without winning. Verona is scoring more goals in this matchup, while their defense is conceding a lot as well, while Fiorentina is terrible on both ends. I was thinking to take the draw here, but taking everything into consideration, I will pick something on goals here.
