Fiorentina vs Cremonese match preview

Will Cremonese’s remarkable Coppa Italia adventure finally come to an end?

To get this far, I Grigiorossi have knocked out both Napoli on penalties and the Roma, but this looks like being a step to far.

In the first leg earlier this month, Arthur Cabral broke the deadlock at Stadio Giovanni Zini, before Nicolás González’s penalty secured a 2-0 victory for Fiorentina.

Cremonese’s only appearance in a major final to date came in the now defunct Anglo-Italian Cup, beating Derby County 3-1 at Wembley in 1993.

This season’s Coppa Italia exploits are made all the more remarkable by the fact that Davide Ballardini’s team are second bottom of Serie A, having won just three games all season.

For Fiorentina, baring a huge collapse, they’ll be preparing for a first Coppa Final in nine years, seeking to win the trophy for the first time since 2001.

I Viola are targeting a cup double, given that they’re in the Europa Conference League semi-finals, dumping out Lech Poznań a week ago.

Vincenzo Italiano’s team will take on FC Basel in the last four, heavy favourites to reach that final too.

Back in 1961, Fiorentina won both the Coppa Italia and Cup Winners’ Cup, defeating Lazio and Rangers in those finals, hoping for a repeat of that 62 years on.

Given that I Gigliati are tenth in Serie A, beaten 3-2 by Monza on Sunday, throwing away a 2-0 lead, they’ll need to capture one of the two cups on offer to be back in Europe.

Can Cremonese pull off an historic turnaround at Stadio Artemio Franchi?
