Roma vs Fiorentina
Italy Serie A
Date: Sunday, 1 November 2020
Kick-Off at 17.00 UK
Venue: Olimpico Stadium, Rome.
Roma have been held to a somewhat disappointing goalless draw by CSKA Sofia midway through the week but have a streak to build on, after holding off in-form AC Milan (3-3) and connecting six games without a loss across competitions. They host Fiorentina on Sunday hoping to catch up with the top of the table but could face a tough challenge.
Giallorossi have been scoring numbers of goals since the break, beating Benevento (5-2) and Young Boys (1-2) since the International break as well. They will be happy with Edin Dzeko finding his goalscoring form and we now expect an attacking approach from Paulo Fonseca, which could mean another high-scoring occasion at Olimpico.
Fiorentina have struggled since late September but finally ended their winless streak and earned two wins in a row, as they beat Udinese (3-2 in Serie A) and Padova (2-1 in Coppa Italia) at home ground. They have been scoring goals but still have a lot to prove if they’re to climb the table, which makes this an opportunity and a great test for the visitors. Still, defensive woes on the road will be very worrying indeed.

Roma vs Fiorentina Prediction
We will back Roma to bag all three points and make it three in a row against Fiorentina, making the most out of the Sunday’s clash and catching up with the top of the table. They’ve been tough at Olimpico and we hope to see them return to the winning ways, going for a Home win at 1.80.
Still, Fiorentina promise a challenge and they have a streak of two wins to build on. The visitors finally felt more confident up front with Castrovilli and Jose Callejon leading, which has us hoping for goals on both ends and backing a YES on Both teams to score at 1.53. This feels like a real banker bet and has caught the eye of many heavy hitters already.
