Fiorentina Preview

Fiorentina’s mixed run of form continued last weekend as after an impressive 3-2 home win over Lazio a fortnight ago, they succumbed to a humiliating 4-1 away loss at SSC Napoli. Fiorentina have struggled for consistency all season and that’s why they failed to book a place in the European competitions next term. La Viola sit in 8th in the Serie A table tied on 59 points with the 7th-placed Inter, four points of the European places with just one game to go. Fiorentina’s main reason for their struggle throughout the season has been their sloppy defence, as they hold one of the worst defensive records in top ten with 55 goals conceded in 37 rounds. Although, Fiorentina have been a tough nut to crack on home soil this season, losing just once in their 18 home league fixtures. Their sole defeat came at the hands of Empoli a month ago, but they bounced back with two consecutive wins over Inter and Lazio in their most recent home league games. In addition, La Viola have won the last two meetings with Pescara in the Serie A, scoring at least two goals in each of these. Nikola Kalinic and Federico Bernardeschi have been Fiorentina’s most dangerous players in front of goal so far this season, as the pair bagged 26 goals and six assists between them.

Fiorentina Team News

There are no fresh injury concerns for Fiorentina ahead of this game.

Pescara Preview

Pescara, on the other hand, hfinally returned to winning ways in the Serie A last weekend as they picked up a comfortable 2-0 home victory over Palermo. This was their only third win of the season, but it’s already too late as Pescara are already relegated to the Serie B. They have only collected 17 points from their 37 league outings this season, which is one of the weakest records in the Serie A in the last two decades. Keeping the ball out of their own net has been Pescara’s biggest problem throughout this Serie A campaign as they hold the worst defensive record in the league with 79 goals conceded in 37 rounds. At the other end of the field, the Delfini managed to score 35 goals in 37 league games this season, including eight from their top scorer Gianluca Caprari. Ahmad Benali has also enjoyed a decent Serie A campaign, helping the team with six goals and two assists in his 33 league appearances. On the road, Pescara have only won once in 18 league trips this season, which makes them the worst away team in the division.

Pescara Team News

Hugo Armando Campagnaro, Simone Pepe, Guglielmo Stendardo and Davide Vitturini are all doubts, but Ahmad Benali is out through suspension.
