Roma vs Fiorentina Match Preview
Fiorentina have a strong record away to Roma since 2015, but this time they may have to settle for a point rather than another decisive victory (see stats above).
The trio of Fiorentina wins in the capital mentioned above includes visits in the Europa League and the Coppa Italia, the latter being the competition in which the Viola also dished out a 7-1 drubbing to Roma when these clubs last met in January.
That was one of the results which led to the sacking of Roma coach Eusebio Di Francesco, who has been replaced until the end of the season by Claudio Ranieri – but so far, the veteran’s spell in charge is resembling his tenure at Fulham this season more than Leicester in 2015-16.
Ranieri began with a 2-1 win at home to Empoli, but subsequently the Giallorossi have lost by the same scoreline at SPAL and then 4-1 against Napoli at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday to make it four defeats out of five.
Therefore, Roma do not appeal at a shade of odds-against here, but Fiorentina are just too leaky defensively to make themselves a hugely attractive bet either – only one clean sheet in their last 12 games.
We recommended backing Fiorentina to draw at home to Torino at the weekend and they duly made it six stalemates out of nine, and the sheer frequency with which their matches finish all-square means that is the main bet we will be having again.
