Fiorentina is hosting Torino at Stadio Artemio Franchi in round 34 in Italian Serie A.
Fiorentina is finally shoeing sings of life, too bad it’s this late in the season. With 2 wins and 2 draws in their last 4 games, Fiorentina has climbed to 13th place with 39 points, and with another win or two, Fiorentina will be safe, and their Serie A spot will be secured. Fiorentina’s offense has been their biggest weakness this season with only 41 scored goals. In their last Serie A game against Lecce on the road, Fiorentina was the better team with 51% of ball possession, massive 8 shots on goal, 5 corner kicks, and solid 88% of the correct passes. Fiorentina has scored 3 goals in the first half, and with that, Fiorentina has won this game 1-3. Chiesa is Fiorentina’s top goalscorer with 7 goals and 5 assists, while Vlahovic and Pulgar added 6 goals each. Benassi is the only injured player in Fiorentina and he will not be in the lineup for this game. There are a lot of problems in Fiorentina, and the consistency is probably the biggest one they have, but the coaching change is on the horizon for Fiorentina, and we can only hope it will do some good because Fiorentina is a good team that can do so much better.
Torino is in 15th place in the standings with 37 points, and with only 8 points above the relegation zone, Torino is still in danger of being relegated. Torino has conceded massive 60 goals so far this season, and they are among the worst defensive teams in Serie A, while their offense is far from being enough to compensate for that. Torino has scored only 41 goals in 33 games this season. Torino has collected 3 wins since the restart, alongside 1 draw and 4 losses. Belotti is having a decent season and he is Torino’s top goalscorer with 16 goals. Simone Verdi added 5 assists. Baselli is the only injured player for Torino. In their last Serie A game against Genoa at home, Torino has had 43% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 8 corner kicks, and 76% of the correct passes. With 1 goal in the first half and 2 more goals in the second half, Torino has won this match 3-0 which brought them 3 precious points in their battle to stay out of the relegation zone. Torino is not having a good season, but I think that in the end, Torino will stay out of the relegation zone and that we will see them in Serie A next season as well. The good news for Torino is that they are not playing against any of the top teams from Serie A until the end of the season, which should make their battle a little bit easier.
Torino has lost 8 games on the road in a row, while Fiorentina has won only 3 home games this season, alongside 8 draws and 6 losses. I’m tempted to take Fiorentina after their win on the road a few days ago, but Torino has also won their last game, and because of that, I can’t just write Torino off. I think I will pick something on goals here.
