Venue: Stadio Artemio Franchi


A cloud of doubt looms over Artemio Franchi as Fiorentina fails to deliver a more consistent performance during its encounter against Sampdoria. The battle ended in a scoreless stalemate.


Aside from Juventus, Napoli and Roma, Fiorentina is one of the clubs that could feature in the Champions League next season. However, it seems that supporters can no longer hold on to such ambition. The squad has slowly lost its tight grip on the 4th spot. Slowly, its big lead crumbled into pieces and since everything is possible in football, a single mistake can compromise Fiorentina’s impressive run.


With just a mere 3-point lead against Inter, the latter can easily outrank them if they fall into Udinese hands. Looking back at how Sampdoria almost crushed them, the scoreless stalemate seems to be a premonition of the worse that it has to endure if it fails to man on the pitch.


Udinese is a no push-over squad. They can steal the limelight in an instant and subject its opponents to pure humiliation. Udinese’s probability of snatching the upper hand is evident  in their present team form.
Compared to Fiorentina, Udinese has 3 victories to boast, whereas the former can only speak of 2 wins.


Likewise, the Zebrettes were able to keep 3 clean sheets in its last 3 matches. With such performance, indeed, this is something that Fiorentina should be wary of. Udinese is pushing for the safety zone, this is despite the fact that it is several notches away from the relegation area.


Fiorentina should remain alert instead of being too complacent. They may be the top pick of sports betting sites. But it is the results on the pitch that matter.
