The Purple welcome AS Roma to the Stadio Artemio Franchi on Monday for this Serie A match. Sunday's Serie A fixtures pit two teams against each other in what could be a six-pointer in the battle for Europa League football next season. A win for Fiorentina would see them move level on points with Roma who currently occupy the 5th spot. Defeat would likely see them out of the running entirely for European football next season.
Roma qualified for the first-ever Europa Conference League final in midweek. Jose Mourinho has never lost a European final in his career and will have hopes of getting his hands on the trophy later this month. Winning the competition would see Roma qualify for the Europa League next season regardless of their league finish.
ACF Fiorentina come into the match on a run of three defeats in a row while failing to score in each of their last two. They have picked up nine points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Serie A matches.
Gigliati lost their last league match away to AC Milan. Expected goals of 1.5 to 0.5 in favour of AC Milan indicates perhaps it was a fair result. The Viola fans will be particularly disappointed with the attacking performance with their side failing to create any big chances in the match and only managing two shots on target inside 90 minutes. The final score of the match was 1-0.
Their opponent on Monday, AS Roma, come into the match on a run of three league games without a win. They have picked up 11 points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Serie A matches.
The Yellow and Reds’ last league match, at home to Bologna FC, ended in a dull 0-0 draw. Expected goals of 1.4 to 1.0 in favour of Bologna indicates Roma were a little fortunate to escape from the game with a point.
Tammy Abraham is AS Roma’s top scorer with fifteen goals in Serie A this season but was rested for the Bologna match with one eye on their midweek Europa Conference League Semi-Final. He is expected to return to the starting lineup here and is 7/1 to score the opening goal against ACF Fiorentina on Monday.
