SPAL vs Fiorentina Match Preview
Fiorentina travel to Ferrara for their Matchday 24 clash on Sunday looking to build on a seven-match unbeaten streak earned despite a tough schedule, now sitting just six points behind the Serie A top 6 and surely very motivated to close the gap as soon as this weekend.
Viola have held off Napoli (0-0) last week and still built on the streak despite not finding the net, after bagging a high total of 17 goals in five outings beforehand. Stefano Pioli’s men have enjoyed a great moment and they will now want to show off once again, desperate to rejoin the thriller chase for a top 4 spot as well.
SPAL have proven themselves a tough nut to crack more recently, though, and only suffered a narrow 2-1 loss at Atalanta last week. They’ve held Bologna (1-1), Torino (0-0) to draws and beat Parma in a 2-3 thriller along the way, which will have them very motivated to bounce back once again.
However, the visitors should prove more of a challenge at this point and SPAL will have to do more in the final third, after not making it on the scoresheet in three of their last four home outings. This could prove costly if Leonardo Semplici can’t find a cure for such woes!
We do feel it will and we’ll now stick with Fiorentina to snatch all three points in Ferrara with an Away win priced at 5/4 with BetVictor, despite the rivals’ recent form seeing them out of the immediate danger zone.
Indeed, SPAL could as well find themselves hovering above the relegation zone once again with a loss here and it will not come easy. We thus expect a thrilling contest as Viola outgun the home side to the points and we go for Over 2.5 Goals FT at 13/10 with William Hill.
