AC Fiorentina vs Genoa 1893 / Serie A – Survival struggle in the Serie A is very interesting, and this match of the last round will shape the struggle and decide about almost everything. Fiorentina has three points more and is in far more favourable position than Genoa, which is the first below the red line. It is clear that draw would suit the home team, while Genoa stays in the Serie A only if it wins. Both teams are in dreadfully shape lately, while their first match played this season had ended as a goalless draw.
AC Fiorentina vs Genoa 1893 begins 26.05.2019 at 20:30 CET
From the race to European competitions to the survival struggle, would be the shortest description of the season for Fiorentina, which is already very disappointing, while possible relegation from the Serie A would equal to disaster. They will be relegated if they lose this match and if Empoli and Udinese win, which is fairly unrealistic, however, it is much safer to play at least a draw. Fiorentina weren’t able to do even that in six previous rounds, and they forget when they won the last victory time. Now, they have to find strength to at least draw, and they will have to do that without Mirallah who was injured when they lost to Parma away in the previous round.
Probable lineups AC Fiorentina: Lafont – Milenkovic, Pezzella, V. Hugo, Biraghi – Benassi, Fernandes, Veretout – Muriel, Simeone, Chiesa
Genou is in very difficult situation, however, they can blame no one but themselves for being in such position. For a bigger part of the season Genoa had a fairly comfortable situation and was mostly positioned around the middle of the table. They lost steam at the worst possible moment, near the very end and now they have nine-game winless streak. Interestingly, the last match they won was against old/new champion Juventus and that happened in mid-March. Genoa mostly drew its recent matches; it played three times 1-1, and lost in Bergamo to Atalante. In the last round they had to do better than to draw with Cagliari at home, but even that they achieved thanks to a goal scored from penalty awarded in the very finish of match.
Probable lineups Genoa 1893: Radu – Biraschi, Romero, Zukanovic, Criscito – Pereira, Veloso, Radovanovic – Bessa – Pandev, Lapadula
AC Fiorentina vs Genoa 1893 PICK
Fiorentina needs just one point and it could be even good for Genoa too if Empoli losses in Milan, which is quite realistic. So, everything point at a draw which is definitely a very probable option, and that is what we are going to forecast.
