Prediction Serie A: Verona - Fiorentina
- Title : Prediction Serie A: Verona - Fiorentina
After just two days, Serie A will start again and will have a very important midweek round. The first match will be between Verona and Fiorentina. Juric's team lost the last match played in Marassi against Sampdoria 3 to 1. The Viola team also lost the last match played in Reggio Emilia against Sassuolo. Verona are in ninth position at 41, Iachini's men are 16th at 30 points.
Verona is in ninth position with 41 points. This result came thanks to 11 wins, eight draws and 12 defeats. There is a near parity between the goals scored and those conceded: 39 are those scored with an average of 1.26 per game, while 38 conceded, 1.23 every 90 minutes. In the last five games, Verona has come to a halt with only three points won thanks to a victory and four defeats, the team seems to have discharged a little after reaching the safety zone at the beginning of the second round.
At home, the situation does not improve much. There are three consecutive defeats, while the victory has been missing since February 15 in the match against Parma. In total, 21 points have been won on friendly ground with six wins, three draws and six defeats. The goals in the matches on the Verona field slightly decrease both as regards those achieved and those suffered, 18 those scored while 17 those suffered. The big surprise this season is definitely Antony Barak. The Czech midfielder has scored seven goals this season and is the team's top scorer, also equaling his personal best.
A very complicated situation for Viola with only 30 points won in the first 31 days. The team coached by Iachini has reached this point thanks to seven wins, nine draws and 15 defeats. The attack is doing an alright job as demonstrated by the 39 goals scored, 1.26 per match while the defense troubles with the 52 goals conceded, 1.68 per game. There are three defeats in the last four games for Fiorentina who cannot find the right way to get out of this very complicated situation.
The match situation away is a very serious problem. There are only 10 points won in these matches, better only than Parma and Crotone. In 15 games there are two victories, four draws and nine defeats. The attack works badly with only 17 goals scored while the defense always remains a problem with the 30 goals conceded and a situation that must be changed as quickly as possible. One of the few players who are doing well this season is Dusan Vlahovic. The Serbian forward has already scored 15 goals, making him the Serbian player who has scored the most in a Serie A season.
Verona (3-4-2-1): Silvestri; Dawidowicz, Gunter, Magnani; Faraoni, Sturaro, Veloso, Lazovic; Barak, Zaccagni; Lasagna. Coach. Juric
Fiorentina (3-5-2): Dragowski; Caceres, Pezzella, Quarta; Venuti, Castrovilli, Pulgar, Bonaventura, Biraghi; Ribery, Vlahovic. Coach. Iachini
Fiorentina need a victory tonight and get some space from relegation zone. They will go forward from minute one but will probably not play without conceding. Verona want to change their form and start winning again.
My bet will be over 2.0 goals. (Money back on 2 goals)
|Prediction||Over 2.0 goals (Asian lines)|
