Venue: Stadio Renato Della`Ara


Fiorentina’s top brass, Vincenzo Montella expressed his disappointment over his side’s narrow defeat to Roma. The club is at risk of losing the 4th spot of the Serie A table after failing to extend its lead against Inter. Fiorentina’s next match is pitted against the rock-bottom Bologna.


Montella stressed that he was unhappy with the team’s failure to convert the scoring opportunities that they had against Roma. Along with this is the affirmation that the capital club is indeed, worthy of plaudits for its seemingly impenetrable defence wall.


Fiorentina currently sits on the 4th spot of Italy’s top-flight league and is one of the strongest contenders for the Europa League. However, its 2-point lead over its closest rival, Inter, hardly secures its stay in the above-mentioned spot. The loss served as a major dent to its ambition of pulling away from other Europa League aspirants.


But fortunately for the Violas, they have the chance to redeem themselves in their match against the struggling Bologna.


Speaking of Bologna suffered another crucial defeat and continued its 5-match winless streak last week. Juventus outlasted the team and left them scrambling in the relegation zone.


But there is still hope for Bologna as a single win is enough to help them temporarily veer away from the relegation zone. Going against the online betting favorite, Fiorentina is not easy though. Yet, they cannot afford to lose as it will lessen their survival chances this season.


Prediction: Fiorentina
