AS Roma – AC Fiorentina – The last match 23rd round of the Italian Serie A, this time playing in an unusual time, on Tuesday night and will meet third-placed Roma and Fiorentina seventh, which currently has 10 points behind. However, the popular “viola” can boast the primary series of three wins and two draws, while on the other hand the Romans just in the last round to visiting the defeat of Sampdoria broke his brilliant series of five wins, and four achieved the championship and one in the Cup . As for their autumn primary skirmishes in Florence, host celebrated with 1: 0, while the last year, both times were better Roma.
And that is especially compelling was this home win Rome of 4: 1, then it is quite logical that in their camp and now expect three points from the duel with Fiorentina, especially because popular “wolf” of the season at home is still not dropped a single points in Serie A. therefore, coach Spalettija at the moment and keep third place in the standings, and this with only one point less than Napoli, while Juventus are lagging behind the leading seven points.
Of course the main reason for such a thing lies in something worse parties Rome on hand, they are so in the last round in Genoa defeated with 3: 2 by Sampdoria, after the home team achieve even two goals in the last 15 minutes. After that match the Romans still had the obligation and the National Cup, where practically half the power coming to a home win by 2: 1 against second division side Cesena and thus ensure themselves in the semi-finals with two games against city rivals Lazio. As for the duel with the “Viola”, because of injuries are still sidelined midfielder Florenz and striker Perotti, while striker Salah has not yet returned from the African Nations Cup.
Probable lineups Rome: Szczesny – Manolas, Fazio, Rudiger – Peres de Rossi, Strootman, Emerson – Nainggolan, El Shaarawy – Dzeko
As for the guests of Florence, but we in the introduction that they do this tour with Roma welcome after the primary series of three wins and two draws, while during this period kiksao only in the Italian Cup, where they were in the quarterfinals of the team Napoli in their field beat the 1: 0th However, it is against the Neapolitans and started this their great series in the championship, because in a great match in Florence played 3: 3, and after that on the same ground is celebrated over Juventus and drew with Genoa and on the road come to win over Chievo and Pescara.
All this only tells us that the chosen coach Sousa’s not so much where they play, because they always ask openly and with the aim to score more than the opponent, so that’s why we now expect a similar situation against Roma at the Olimpico. All the more so because in the first team after the execution of the suspension returned defender Astori and striker Bernardeschi, while the top scorer Kalinic rehabilitate a minor injury. And then it just means that Sousa in this match can not count only on the injured defender Rodriguez.
Probable lineups Fiorentina: Sportiello – Sanchez de Maio, Astori – Chiesa, Vecino, Badelj, Olivera – Bernardeschi, Valero – Kalinic
Although the Romans now flee as many as 10 points away from Florence, and with it more this season have maximum impact at home, we still believe that this will not be an easy task to elect coach Spalettija we are because of that and decided to something more certain type with goals on both sides.
