Spal is hosting Fiorentina at Stadio Paolo Mazza in round 38 in Italian Serie A.
Spal has won their last Serie A game just before the break, but since the restart of the season, Spal has 9 losses and 2 draws, which wasn’t enough for Spal to stay in Serie A for next season as well. With only 20 points, 26 scored goals, and 74 conceded goals, Spal is in the last place in the standings, and they are getting relegated, which was clear a while ago. In their most recent Serie A game against Verona on the road, Spal has had 46% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 1 corner kick, and 82% of the correct passes. Spal has lost this game 3-0. Petagna is Spal’s leading goalscorer with 12 goals, while Valoti added 3 goals. Dabo has 4 assists. Berisha, Castro, Sala, and Cerri are all injured, and they will not be in the lineup for this game. Floccari is still questionable. There is no need to feel bad about being the weakest team in Serie A, after all, stronger teams have had an equally bad season. Spal is now going to Serie B, which is quite competitive, but Spal will be one of the better teams in Serie B.
Fiorentina has been playing well as of late, and with only 1 loss in their last 8 games, Fiorentina is now in 10th place in the standings with 46 points. Fiorentina could potentially drop a few spots in the table, or go 1 spot higher, but it doesn’t matter because they are far from the Europa League, and they will stay far from the relegation zone. Fiorentina has scored 48 goals this season, but they have the potential to score so much more, and it questionable of they will stay the same next season. The changes are coming, whether they will be good or bad changes, we are yet to see. Chiesa has been Fiorentina’s best players this season with 10 goals and 5 assists, while Vlahovic and Pulgar added 6 goals each. Benassi and Dragowski are still injured, while Ghezall is suspended because of the yellow cards. Castrovilli and Ribery are still questionable for this game. In their last Serie A game against Bologna at home, Fiorentina has had 46% of ball possession, 7 shots on goal, 3 corner kicks, 4 big chances created, and solid 84% of the correct passes. Fiorentina has won this match 4-0 with a hat-trick from Chiesa. Unfortunately, Fiorentina will not be playing in the Europa League next season, but that might be good for them because they will have time to focus on Serie A.
Spal has never beaten Fiorentina, and I don’t see them doing it now in the last game of the season. Fiorentina has been in good form, and I see them getting another nice win in this game.
