AS Roma vs Fiorentina Prediction & Betting tips
In the meantime, the Roma had to worry about participating in the Europa League 20/21, but after recent good performances and constant results, it is almost certain that the capital will play a European role in the coming season. Now it’s time to consolidate fifth place to avoid the arduous qualification. The lead over the sixth, AC Milan, is currently two points.
Therefore, only victory counts on Sunday evening. Between AS Roma and Fiorentina, the odds of the best bookmakers clearly move towards the home side, who won four of the youngest five Serie A games and also scored at least two goals per match during this period.
But the guests from Florence are also in an acceptable condition and have been unbeaten for six matches. Among other things, Franck Ribery and Co. fought their way to a 0-0 win at Inter Milan during the week, in which the defense was once again able to convince. Three goals conceded in the last six games are an outstanding value, which leads us to think between AS Roma and Fiorentina about a prediction for the double chance X / 2.
It has been clear since Wednesday at the latest that the new Champions League season 2020/21 will take place without AS Roma. Although the Romans easily won their away game with relegated Spal Ferrara 6-1, the gap to the city rivals Lazio is eleven points three games before the end.
For the team of coach Paulo Fonseca, the only thing left to do is to defend fifth place, in order to at least move directly into the Europa League group stage. Sixth place would be associated with an entry into the second qualification round, since Naples, as the Coppa Italia winner, is also entitled to a fix ticket for the preliminary round. Because the rest of the program with away games at Torino FC and champions Juventus is still tough, a home win on Sunday evening is practically mandatory.
For an AS Roma vs. Fiorentina’s prognosis for the host speaks among other things the fact that the Giallorossi has won four of the past five league games, marking a total of 15 goals. Nevertheless, only in the 3-0 away win in Brescia was it possible to keep the clean sheet. Even in front of their home crowd, the red-yellow team only managed to keep one goal in one of the last eleven matches.
The Roma found it particularly difficult against typical midfield teams. For example, the Fonseca team lost at home to Udinese, Bologna or Turin, who all come from similar table regions as the Fiorentina.
In our eyes, it is therefore by no means clear that “La Magica”, which has only won half of all home games so far (nine out of 18), will have a three on Sunday evening. Between AS Roma and Fiorentina, it is therefore the tip for a score of the guests that promises a more attractive value. Under, Fazio, Ibanez, Jesus and Santon will be injured.
AC Florence started this season with great hopes. With many attractive newcomers and a good stock of old players, the violet whites finally wanted to get closer to international business. However, the reality is different. The Fiorentina is in the gray middle of the ranking and has long since had no chance of returning to the Europa League. The last three matches are therefore only of a statistical nature.
Nevertheless, we expect a highly motivated Iachini team on Sunday evening who has decided to continue the unbeaten series. None of the last six matches have been lost (three wins, three draws). The fact that the viola is currently in good shape was also evident during the week when Inter Milan kept a clean sheet and earned the 0-0 draw.
Another trend continued with the good defensive performance, because the lilies played zero three times in the mentioned period. In total, keeper Terracciano also only had to reach three times, so the defense performance should definitely be recognized.
In order to justify the odds of the guests winning points before the AS Roma duel against Fiorentina, it is also worth taking a look at the results abroad. Even in opposing stadiums, coach Iachini’s team has only failed in the past six games. The bottom line was that the men from Tuscany even posted more points (23) than at home (20). It also looks good in terms of personnel. With the exception of the locked Castrovilli, all professionals are ready for action.
