Fiorentina’s Powerhouse Snatches Easy Victory Against Catania

Updated: August 22, 2013


Match date: 25 August 2013

Venue: Stadio Artemio Franchi


Asian sportsbooks such as 12BET heavily favors Fiorentina to win against the 8th placer, Catania when the two meet on Stadio Artemio Franchi this 25 August 2013.
Dubbed as Serie A’s dark horse, Viola’s current team form is nothing short of being spectacular. The club itself is of high caliber and made even stronger with the acquisition of hand-picked talents.


Last season performance

Vincenzo Montella and his men made a strong finish last season. Currently, they are the 4th best club in Italy’s top-flight league. Although they trailed behind AC Milan, the gap was just 2 points. In terms of goal difference, both clubs are tied at 28.


The impressive performance also explains the club’s eligibility to participate in the Europa League.


The new recruits

Fiorentina’s new recruits made a loud buzz across Serie A. And why not? Their newest members are far from being mediocre. One of them was actually a former member of the historic Bayern Munchen.


Who will be joining Fiorentina then?


Josip Iličić – Iličić is a recognized Palermo midfielder, who was a prominent figure in last year’s Sicilian derby. Securing victory over Catania—the club that Viola shall meet soon, Iličić might just clinch a back-to-back win over the Rossazzurri.


Mario Gómez –Gómez carried the Bavarians during the German Cup against Stuttgart. He scored twice, ensuring Bayern’s nerve-cracking 3-2 victory. The striker was also named as German Footballer of the Year when he helped Stutggart won the championship during the 2006-2007 season. Gómez resume readily speaks of what he can contribute to Viola.


Giuseppe Rossi  – Out of his 56 appearances, Rossi scored 32 goals. He could have scored more if not for the injury. Perhaps Villareal made a wrong decision to let go of the Rossi for now that he has already recovered, expect more goals to come from Fiorentina.
Considering the strength and impressive resumes of Viola’s new members, winning over Catania is a mission that barely requires the club to lift a finger.
