Fiorentina vs Roma
Italian Serie A
Date: 27 May 2023, Saturday
Kick-off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Artemio Franchi (Florence).
Fiorentina and Roma will lock horns in the penultimate Serie A Matchday, hoping to build momentum ahead of the more important European finals.
Both teams managed to reach the last-two phase in their respective continental competitions and the European glory represents a much more important challenge for both outfits than this specific game.
Roma will play their UEFA Europa League final against Sevilla just four days after this clash. Jose Mourinho has generally rested his main stars in the latest league affairs and we do not expect anything different from the Special One in this fixture at Stadio Artemio Franchi.
Roma can still mathematically break into the top four in the Serie A ladder after the latest Juventus’ points’ deduction. However, Mourinho has clearly prioritized the Europa League glory and he will stick to it without any doubts.
The congested schedule will also force Vincenzo Italiano to rest some of his key figures. Fiorentina were in action on Wednesday evening in the Coppa Italia final against Inter Milan.
They will also play the UEFA Europa Conference League final against West Ham on June 7th.
Italiano rested his captain (Biraghi), top scorer (Cabral), and arguably best player (Amrabat) last weekend in a 1-1 draw with Torino. We expect him to do the same here against La Lupa.
Fiorentina vs Roma Head-to-head
- Roma have been much more successful historically with 36 wins, 15 draws, and 13 defeats in the last 64 meetings with I Viola.
- Interestingly, five of the last six head to head outings between these rivals ended with four wins, including Roma’s 2-0 success in January this year at the Stadio Olimpico.
- We’ve seen the Over 2.5 goals FT & Both Teams To Score bet landing in six of the last nine head to head outings between these counterparts.
Fiorentina vs Roma Prediction
It is very hard to give adequate predictions knowing both managers will rest their main players. We do lean more towards the home win bet knowing that Roma will play their most important game of the season on Wednesday evening.
Also, the Romans won just 1 of the last 12 away fixtures across competitions. The home win pick is paid at the 2.25 odds, while you can alternatively chase the Both Teams To Score option at the 1.95 odds.
