Fiorentina vs Genoa Match Preview
Genoa can put the ball in Empoli’s court in the Serie A relegation battle by avoiding defeat at the end of a match in which Fiorentina, remarkably, could also still go down.
Any of the three teams mentioned in the paragraph above may yet join Chievo and Frosinone in playing second-tier football next season, with Genoa starting the final round of games in the bottom three.
By a quirk of the fixture list, two of them finish their campaigns against each other – and who, even at Easter, could ever have imagined that Fiorentina might be relegated if results on Sunday go against them?
That is entirely a consequence of the Viola losing their last six matches and not having won since mid-February, with manager Vincenzo Montella suffering a dreadful return to the club as replacement for Stefano Pioli.
The only way Fiorentina can go down is if they lose and Empoli win away to Inter Milan, and both of those possibilities combined represents a 33/1 chance. Therefore, it looks pretty certain that either Genoa or Empoli will suffer the dreaded drop.
A draw in Florence would suit both protagonists there, based on the assumption that Empoli will lose away to an Inter side who are still trying to secure a place in the Champions League.
Genoa would go ahead of Empoli on the head-to-head rule if they drew with Fiorentina and ended up level on points with the visitors to San Siro – and even though the odds for the stalemate are much shorter than usual, our instinct is that this match will finish all-square.
