The Purple welcome Venezia to the Stadio Artemio Franchi on Saturday for this Serie A match. Viola have a strong home record against Venezia. Their twelve matches in the Stadio Artemio Franchi in Serie A have seen nine Fiorentina wins, one draw and just two victories for Venezia.
ACF Fiorentina come into the match on a run of five league games undefeated and have kept a clean sheet in each of their last two at home. They have picked up 11 points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Serie A matches.
Gigliati won their last league match away to SSC Napoli. Expected goals of 1.5 to 0.9 in favour of Napoli indicates Fiorentina didn't deserve all three points on the balance of chances created. To score three goals despite an xG of just 0.9 suggests either some poor goalkeeping or excellent finishing was on display from Viola. Nicolás González, Jonathan Ikone and Arthur Cabral all got in on the goals here. The final score of the match was 2-3.
González has now scored in back to back games and has four goals in total in Serie A this season. He is 2.6/1 to score against Venezia on Saturday.
Their opponent on Saturday, Venezia, come into the match on a run of seven league games without a win and have failed to score in each of their last two matches on the road. They sit bottom of the form table having picked up zero points from their last six Serie A matches.
The Winged Lions lost their last league match at home to Udinese Calcio. Expected goals of 3.1 to 1.2 in favour of Udinese indicates perhaps it was a fair result. It looked like Thomas Henry would rescue a point for them though with his equaliser five minutes from time. Udinese grabbed a deserved winner from an injury-time corner though to take all three points. The final score of the match was 1-2.
Hendy is now Venezia’s top scorer with seven goals in Serie A this season and is 4.5/1 to score against ACF Fiorentina on Saturday.
