Fiorentina vs Cagliari
Italy Serie A
Date: Sunday, 10 January 2021
Kick-Off at 17.00 UK
Venue: Stadio Artemio Franchi, Firenze.
Judging by the most recent performances, crisis and bad days are history for Fiorentina. Viola have spent some short time sitting in Serie A relegation zone, which caused a positive reaction. Squad got defeated only once in the last five outings and improved on standings significantly.
One of the main reason behind this is appointment of new/old head manager Cesare Prandelli who changed things around. Can Fiorentina return to winning ways this Sunday at home venue against the underdogs Cagliari?
Bookies definitely have faith in that scenario, offering 1.75 odds on Viola’s victory. Visitors from Sardegna are having huge troubles to collect points lately.

Viola’s current record at home is two wins, four draws and two defeats. There is definitely a lot of room for improvement. Another burning issue is poor efficiency – strikers have bagged only 17 goals in 16 appearances.
Serbian forward Dusan Vlahovic was quite active recently, scoring total of five goals in this campaign. Fans are expecting to see more from Franck Ribery, who recently recovered from a rough injury.

Their opponents Cagliari have one of the worst records in the league when it comes to defending, conceding 33 goals. Also this squad has been very shy on the road, winning only one game in eight attempts.
