Verona vs Fiorentina
Italian Serie A
Date: 27 February 2023, Monday
Kick-off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi (Verona).

Verona host Fiorentina in an exciting Matchday No 24 fixture on Monday afternoon at Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi.

The hosts are third from bottom in the Serie A standings, sitting two points below the safe zone and they will be hoping to pick up an important three-pointer in the battle for avoiding the drop to second tier football.

Verona had been on a run of four consecutive league games without a loss under new manager but it came to an end last Sunday in the 1-0 defeat at the hands of Roma at Stadio Olimpico.

Nevertheless, it was yet another strong defensive performance from Marco Zaffaroni’s troops. Verona generally play very tight under Zaffaroni.

None of the last ten games the hosts played in all competitions, including two midseason exhibitions, saw three or more goals scored.

It will be very interesting to see how Verona’s back line will cope with Fiorentina’s offensive unit on Monday, though.

The visitors are winless in the last six league matches but they have been capable of creating numerous chances in the previous several outings.

I Viola bagged seven goals in the double-header against Sporting Braga in the UEFA Europa Conference League playoffs. They also registered as many as 17 attempts in the last weekend’s 1-1 home stalemate to Empoli.

Verona vs Fiorentina Head-to-head

  • Tradition favors Fiorentina who won 7, drew 2, and lost only 3 of the previous 12 away games against Verona.

Verona vs Fiorentina Prediction

Verona play defensive-minded football under Zaffaroni. This is another massive game for them in the battle for avoiding relegation. We expect them to use the same approach on Monday against Fiorentina, making the Under 2.5 goals FT the best betting option at the 1.66 odds.

Fiorentina have a positive head to head record in this matchup but they are winless in six straight Serie A outings. We will back Verona not to lose at the 1.61 odds.
