AS Roma vs Fiorentina Prediction & Betting tips
From Tuesday to Thursday in Serie A the 30th game day will be played. It comes on Wednesday evening at the Stadio Olimpico to the duel between AS Roma and AC Fiorentina. A day after the knockout round in the Champions League against FC Porto was in Rome coach Eusebio Di Francesco been released. One day later, Claudio Ranieri was presented as successor. Ranieri had trained the club from September 2009 to February 2011 and got a contract until the end of the season. The new coach is to lead the Giallorossi back into the premier class. But the record under the new coach is with two defeats and only one victory. Can AS Roma take their second win in the fourth league game under Ranieri?
For the Fioretina the season seems to have gone in the league. After 29 matchdays, the club from Florence has 38 points in the account and is on the tenth place in the table. The gap to the international places is ten points. The relegation zone is 13 points away. The lilies can still move into the final of the Coppa Italia. There is the return leg against Atalanta Bergamo on April 25th. The first leg in Florence ended with a 3: 3. In the quarter-finals of the Italian Cup, the Violets won at home with as much as 7: 1 against the Roma.
In the preseason Eusebio Di Francesco had led the Roma into the semi-finals of the Champions League. This meant for the club the biggest international success since 1984. This season, however, there were significant doubts in the yellow-red, whether one could qualify again for the premier class. Thus, Ranieri, who had been released just a few weeks ago at the English Premier League club Fulham FC, successor to coach Di Francesco. In the same turn, the Spanish sports director Monchi was also put on the door. But a turnaround could not be initiated by the Giallorossi. On Sunday, AS Roma conceded a bitter 1: 4 home defeat to Naples. The home side were quite happy with a 1-1 break. But in the second round, the designated runner-up of the Serie A with three other goals made for clear conditions.
With this bankruptcy, the Associazione Sportiva slipped to seventh place and thus once completely out of the European Cup ranks out. The gap in sixth place is only one point. The Champions League ranks are still within reach with four counters. Ranieri is probably just the transitional solution to the end of the season. A new sports director should then find a new coach for the future. The defeat to Napoli was after all only the second home defeat in this season. In front of their own fans, there have been eight wins and four draws so far. 33 home goals are together with Juve and Napoli, the best value of Serie A. But against the supposedly weak in the table, the Romans have a hard time: Against the last seven of the table Rome lost already 16 points. Missing against Florence are injured Bianda, Florenzi, El Shaarawy and Pastore. Manolas is locked. Although Roma against Fiorentina are favorites to win against Fiorentina, they can be doubled if they win.
In recent years, the tendency at the Associazione Calcio Fiorentina shows down. In the seasons 2012/13 to 2015/16, the club from Tuscany had always landed in the top five of Serie A. The last two seasons then only enough for eighth place. And this season, it could end up going down the table. It was spent last summer over 50 million euros for new players. But with the exception of goalkeeper Alban Lafont, Florence could not score a direct hit. Currently the lilies are in tenth place. The gap to ninth place is already seven points. The season in the league seems to have gone.
But coach Stefano Pioli tries to keep up the tension with his team. The big goal is the Cup semi-final second leg on 25 April in Bergamo. Only in Coppa Italia can the violets save the season. Until then, the Associazione Calcio must stay in shape. But in the last nine competitive games, there was only one victory. And those brought the lilies only against the descent threatened SPAL Ferrara. Last weekend, at home, they were only 1-1 against Torino FC. With 14 draws, the Violets are the draw kings of the Serie A. Especially heavy is the failure of star player Federico Chiesa, who is currently courted by numerous European top clubs. In addition to Chiesa missing the injured Pjaca and Fernandes. Pezzella returns to the team after his yellow card suspension.
