Our match prediction:
Fiorentina still cannot recuperate from their heavy defeat against Tottenham in the Europa League, since they have been looking for a victory ever since (D4 L2). After the defeat in the Tuscan Derby against Empoli, their chances of playing in the Champions League look very slim and Viola can only thank the miserable form of Milan for having a rather secure position that could lead them into Europe next term. Rumours about Sousa leaving to Sankt Petersburg during the summer could just worsen the low morale of the team, but the Portuguese tactician declared he is only focused on his charges. Sassuolo recorded their third home defeat this term against Genoa, mostly thanks to Perin’s saves, which denied them of leapfrogging Milan in the table. I Neroverdi still dream of Europe, they have been rather successful in recent matches on the road, if we disregard the loss against Juventus, and we will predict an away triumph, given the poor form of Sousa’s side.
