Fiorentina vs AS Roma prediction comes before the 17th Serie A round matchup. This match will be played on Friday, December 20, at Stadio Artemio Franchi in Florence, Italy. In this match preview, we’ll give you some useful betting tips and correct score predictions based on the analysis of these two sides.
Fiorentina vs AS Roma Betting Tips
The current situation in the Italian Serie A is such that Inter and Juventus are leading the title race, with Lazio trailing behind with three points fewer. Just behind Lazio is this team’s biggest rival AS Roma. This side is in the 4th place, which is the last one that leads to the Champions League. Finishing in top 4 is what AS Roma want, but the season is long and there’s still plenty of matches to be played. This means that they need to keep on winning as many points as possible.
They’re in a decent form and want to keep it going, especially now when the Europa League is on a break for a few months. Serie A will also go to a small break soon, with only one round left to be played in this calendar year. But, the break will not be too long, because football returns to Italy in the first week of January.
For AS Roma, this game is of high importance. They need to win this because some very tough matches are laying ahead. For example, their second game in January is the clash with Juventus. But, AS Roma seem to be doing very well every time they’re faced with a heavyweight team. They played draw with Inter, while beating Napoli and AC Milan. This definitely makes them optimistic ahead of the clash in Florence.
This goes double knowing how poor Fiorentina have been recently. This team is in the bottom half of the table, far behind the teams that are sitting in Euro places. Fiorentina are only four points ahead of Brescia, the nearest team from the relegation zone.
The reason why Fiorentina are so low on the table is that they’ve been dreadful lately, winning only one point in Serie A in the last six rounds. What gives them some hope ahead of this Friday’s game is the fact that they have a pretty decent history with AS Roma. For example, the last time these two played at Artemio Franchi, the score was 7:1 for the home team. It was a cup game, but nevertheless.
