SPAL vs Fiorentina
Italy – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 2 August 2020
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Paolo Mazza.
Gli Estensi have been the worst team in the competition this whole season, and they understandably are placed dead last in the table. They have already ensured their status as a relegated squad, and at least for the next 12 months, this would be their very last Serie A game.
It would be quite an effort to motivate themselves to play in this game, considering that it’s ultimately just a meaningless fixture for them. And, La Viola would be eager to take advantage of this.
They have been on an impressive run lately, and would love to close out their campaign on a winning note.
Considering the form of Giuseppe Iachini’s men, their 100% unbeaten record in h2h clashes, and the struggles of their counterparts, expect a win for Fiorentina this Sunday.

SPAL 2013 vs Fiorentina: Prediction
Luigi Di Biagio’s men lost 3-0 on the road the last match-day, against Verona. Samuel Di Carmine scored a brace in the opening ten minutes to ensure that his team had a good start.
Meanwhile, Iachini’s men registered a 4-0 win at home the past game week, against Bologna.
As things stand, La Viola have a huge upper hand. They were unbeaten in seven of their previous eight overall match-ups, and they remained so in 11 of their former 14 overall fixtures. In addition, they had also kept clean sheets in three of their past four games.
On the other hand, their opposite number are the worst team in the league at present, and have been relegated to Serie B. They have scored the least number of goals so far, just 26, while 17 of the remaining 19 have scored 40 or more goals.
Moreover, they were winless in 18 of their preceding 20 games, and of these 16 were losses. At home, they were winless in 14 of their last 15 appearances, and in the process, they had also gone through a six-fixture losing run.
Finally, they have never won against this opponent, and had lost the latest such meeting at this venue, with a 1-4 scorecard.
As such, expect Fiorentina to win this upcoming encounter in style.
