It’s a huge game in Serie A between Fiorentina and Torino for a place in the top half of Serie A as the Florence outfit sit in 10th and only behind the Turin side on goals difference in what could end up being one of the biggest games of the season for the two.
23 points is the tally for both teams heading into this one, but it’s Fiorentina needing to do more work for this game. The home side may have scored two more goals (21) than Torino’s 18, but they have let in four more (24) than their 20.
On the other hand, both sides are coming into this one off the back of defeats each. Ivan Juric’s side hosted and lost to Spezia 1-0 last Sunday, despite his men having 68% of the ball.
Fiorentina, however, were on the opposite end of a Paulo Dybala masterclass, as they lost 2-0 to Roma. Worse yet, Dodo was sent off that day for Vincenzo Italiano’s side and he now misses this game.
Fiorentina are otherwise unbeaten since action in Italy resumed after the World Cup, and it’s the same for Torino after a spectacular win over AC Milan in the Coppa Italia 10 days ago.
