Both Fiorentina and Hellas Verona are hoping to climb a notch higher to secure a spot in the next season. The Gialloblus, however, were having problems with their away matches as they struggle to replicate their Bologna victory—the only successful feat they have clinched during their last 6 encounter. Visiting the Violas, Hellas Verona is once again, face with the same dilemma, which makes them as the least favorite of punters who place their sports bet online.

 

Match Date: 02 December 2013 (local time)

Venue: Stadio Artemio Franchi 

 

Team Form

Fiorentina

Despite the defeat to Udinese and a scoreless stalemate against Pacos de Ferreira, Fiorentina remains a strong force to reckon with.

 

With a record of 4 wins and 2 losses during their last 6 matches, there is no question why the club occupies the 5th spot of Serie A. The club has managed to bear, cope, adjust well to the absence of some of their key players, such as the German striker, Mario Gomez and collect the needed points.

 

Overall, Fiorentina boasts a record of winning 26 of their last 29 matches at home. This is crucial since it determines how they will fare against another equally aggressive club, Hellas Verona. Apparently, they are at their best form when playing at Artemio Franchi. But what really characterizes the club’s home performance this season is the fact that their last 4 home matches accumulated to more than 2.5 goals. Definitely, this meant that the club has no problems with scoring and this could increase their advantage against their upcoming opponent. S

 

Hellas Verona

Among the ranks of newly promoted clubs in Serie A, Hellas Verona will always come out as the heavy favorite. They may be a new face in the league. But so far, what they have shown proved to be better than other clubs in the league.

 

Hellas Verona just suffered a 1-0 defeat in the Derby della Scalla. This is their 3rd loss in their last 6 matches. However, this barely affects their overall form. As a matter of fact, they occupy the 6th spot of the league table. They may have failed to garner additional points, yet, still, they are far from the relegation zone.

 

But a visit to Fiorentina might compromise their ambition to climb a notch higher. Their away form has not been very impressive. Playing outside their own ground ended 4 defeats in their last 6 away matches. Their best performances were a draw and a lone  victory.
