Fiorentina vs Roma
Italian Serie A
Date: 9 May 2022, Monday
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadio Artemio Franchi (Florence).
Roma managed a huge 1-0 victory over Premier League side Leicester City on Thursday evening to advance to the UEFA Europa Conference League final.
The Italian outfit went through 2-1 on aggregate, following the 1-1 draw in the first leg on English soil.
Tammy Abraham was the difference-maker, bagging the only goal of the game as early as in the 11th minute at Stadio Olimpico.
Jose Mourinho’s troops thus ended a streak of four successive matches without a win in all competitions.
The Portuguese manager can generally be satisfied with the displays his men have shown defensively of late, especially with the one against Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester City on Thursday.
Roma will have a nice opportunity to offer another strong defensive showing on Monday night when they travel to Stadio Artemio Franchi to battle top-half rivals Fiorentina in the last and the most exciting game of Matchday No 36 in Serie A.
Fiorentina dropped out of the top-six in the Serie A table after a horrendous streak of three successive losses.
It includes embarrassing losses to the likes of Salernitana (2-1 on the road) and Udinese (0-4 at home).
The main problem for head coach Vincenzo Italiano is the lack of cutting edge in his team’s attacking line these days because Fiorentina only managed to find the back of the net once in the previous four outings across competitions.
