Fiorentina vs Roma / Serie A – This is definitely the most interesting match of the 11th round of Italian Serie A as 6th-placed Fiorentina meets 8th-positioned Roma, which has the same number of points as their great rival from Florence. Still, Roma is in much better shape than Fiorentina at the moment, since the latter has won just two points in last three rounds. We should add that both played head-to-head
On the other hand, Fiorentina won four and drew one out of five home matches played in the Serie A. The drew happened two rounds ago when they faced Cagliari at home 1-1, while after that they ended away match with Torino with the same result, which translates that Fiorentina still hasn’t won away game this season. Such results cased to slide down at the sixth place in the Serie A table.
True, good results at home give reason to Fiorentina fans to be optimistic ahead of the derby with very good Roma, which is on top of it their direct rival in the race for positions that lead to Europe. Regarding the team, manager Pioli still enjoys time without injuries or suspensions and we expect to see Fiorentina’s strongest team on the pitch on Saturday.
Probable lineups AC Fiorentina: Lafont – Milenkovic, Pezzella, Vitor Hugo, Biraghi – Benassi, Veretout, Gerson – Chiesa, Simeone, Pjaca
Fiorentina vs Roma begins 03.11.2018 at 18:00 CET
The guests from Rome also finished their league match played last weekend with result 1-1, although they are still sorry for missing the chance to win all three points in Naples. Roma had a lead all the way up to 90 minutes of 1-0 at the San Paolo, but then Napoli’s forward Miralles manages to checkmate goalkeeper Olsen. In that way, he practically stole from Roma two very much needed points for the race for positions that lead to Europe.
Still, manager Di Francesco can be pleased with what his team showed in the match, especially as they were defeated by SPAL at home in the previous round. On the other hand, after losing to Real Madrid in the Champions League they have managed to win two home matches with Plzen and CSKA Moscow, so their position in regard reaching the knockout phase is fairly strong. Let’s add that due to injuries the Saturday’s match should skip defenders Manolas and Karsdorp, midfielders De Rossi and Pastore, and forwards Kluivert and Perotti.
Probable lineups AC Roma: Olsen – Florenzi, Fazio, Juan Jesus, Kolarov – Pellegrini, Nzonzi, Cristante – Under, Dzeko, El Shaarawy
Fiorentina vs Roma PICK
Fiorentina is still undefeated at home this season, while Roma plays bravely outside its stadium recently. When we put this together it seems the most realistic outcome of the Saturday’s match will be goals on both sides of the pitch.
