Fiorentina vs Hellas Verona
Italy Serie A
Date: Saturday, 19 December 2020
Kick-Off at 15.00 UK
Venue: Stadio Artemio Franchi, Firenze.
Despite having a couple of solid attempts to secure victory in Serie A, team Fiorentina just keep struggling and hanging around the relegation zone. It’s fair to say that squad from Firenze is the biggest disappointment of the campaign so far.
Even the return of Franck Ribery didn’t change much, as teams struggled to create opportunities in front of Sassuolo’s goal during the mid-week action. The only goal game from a penalty spot, executed by Serbian striker Dusan Vlahovic.
Can tides finally turn for Viola this weekend as they host Hellas Verona? The Mastiffs have been really impressive in duels against top tier teams in this campaign, but form against the others is quite inconsistent. Hosts are favorites judging by the 2.20 odds offered by most of bookies.

Fiorentina vs Hellas Verona Prediction
As mentioned above, Hellas Verona have achieved massive success against best teams in the league. Just recently they returned from a trip to Rome with a 2-1 win over Lazio. Before that, Mastiffs were victorious against Atalanta in Bergamo 2-0, and won a point versus leaders AC Milan at San Siro 2-2.
Not even reigning champions Juventus managed to beat this team in Torino.
However, it seems like burden of favorites in duels against weaker teams is something they don’t know to deal with. Sampdoria conquered Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi last Sunday with a 2-1 win.
Fiorentina truly have amazing individuals within their roster. 1-1 draw versus Sassuolo is not a bad result by any means, considering that squad from Reggio Emilia is positioned very high. Cesare Prandelli was appointed as new head manger in November, and we feel it’s time for first victory under his leadership.
