Frosinone vs Fiorentina
Italian Serie A.
Date: Friday 9 November 2018
Kick-Off: 19:30 UK,
Venue: Stadio Benito Stirpe (Frosinone).
Frosinone will hope to make it a fourth straight game sans defeat as they take on Fiorentina at their home ground on Friday evening.
The Canarini have picked up five points from their last three fixtures. Prior to that, they had earned just one points, showing a remarkable sign of improvement, but they are still in 19th place and need to push on in order to claw their way out of the relegation zone. Still, three points are what divide them from 17th-placed Bologna, and Frosinone indeed have been growing in confidence lately with each passing game.
However, will they be able to do it against the visitors from Tuscany? They come into this game having picked up a 0-0 draw against Parma on the road, and prior to that, put three past SPAL. In their last home game, they earned a 3-3 draw against Fiorentina’s Tuscan rivals Empoli, and will be looking to take advantage of the fact that Fiorentina have struggled on the road so far this term.
In fact, Fiorentina have yet to win a single game on their travels. So far, it’s been two draws and three losses for the Viola, who come into this game winless in their last four Serie A games. Three straight draws are what Stefano Pioli’s men have earned since a 1-0 loss to Lazio, with their last win being a 2-0 win over Atalanta at the end of September.

Frosinone vs Fiorentina: Prediction
After a rough start which saw them pick up just one point from their first eight games, Frosinone have earned five points from their last three. They earned a 3-3 draw against Empoli at this ground recently and whilst Fiorentina will present a much tougher opponent than Empoli, SPAL, and Parma, the Canarini certainly are slowly growing in confidence thanks to more positive results. Fiorentina, meanwhile, have yet to win an away game and have hit a rough patch.
They’ve failed to beat Lazio, Napoli, and Inter in their travels, and struggled to get a point against Torino, whilst they couldn’t hold onto a lead against Sampdoria. This could present a chance for Frosinone to potentially grind out another draw. After all, they did just that the last time the two sides met here back in March 2016.
