Our prediction for this Serie A match:
It seems that Fiorentina simply cannot find their winning form after the defeat at the hands of Tottenham in the Europa League. Since then, Viola achieved four draws and a defeat. The latest share of spoils against Sampdoria came as a surprise, concerning that la Samp are not so successful on their travels. Such run of events are slowly driving Fiorentina away from the Champions League, as they are now six behind Roma. The Azzuri are also suffering from a serious dip in form of late, failing to triumph in their last twelve league fixtures. Both teams have been facing serious problems in productivity, since their attackers are having trouble finding the net of late. On the other hand, both teams have been rather tight in the back, which is why we do not predict much goals in the forthcoming clash. A dull, goalless draw is expected in this football match.
