Arsenal vs Fiorentina Match Preview
Two teams that made flying starts to the 2019 International Champions Cup go head-to-head in Charlotte, North Carolina with Arsenal aiming to build on their excellent win against Bayern Munich.
The Gunners pulled off what must be considered a surprise 2-1 victory in Los Angeles, emerging triumphant thanks to a late strike from 20-year-old centre forward Eddie Nketiah after an own goal had put them ahead. Two days previously, a younger Arsenal side had won 3-0 against Colorado Rapids.
Fiorentina also got an early success under their belt, by the same 2-1 scoreline against the only non-European team in this competition, Chivas Guadalajara of Mexico. The Viola had to come from behind but did so through goals from Giovanni Simeone and Riccardo Sottil.
That marked a more promising start to this campaign for Fiorentina, who remarkably found themselves in a Serie A relegation battle last season but they have kept faith with manager Vincenzo Montella – even though he lost six of his first eight games and drew the other two!
Arsenal are packing in the matches as this is their third in six days and manager Unai Emery will need to be selective in choosing his team – especially as they have another test against Real Madrid only three days further on.
In contrast, Fiorentina’s matches are better spaced apart, with four days until they take on Benfica, and there may just be a touch of value in backing the Italian side to win here.
