Our prediction for this match:
Arsenal and Fiorentina face each other at Bank of America Stadium at the 2019 International Champions Cup. Arsenal chiefs have yet to reinforce the squad in the summer transfer window, but coach Unai Emery still has several top-class players to choose from. The Spaniard, though, is likely to lose upcoming warm-up game to test as many footballers as possible.
Alex Iwobi, who is on international duty with Nigeria, is definitely out of contention, but fellow African player Aubameyang is in the squad as Gabon failed to qualify for the showpiece tournament in Egypt. Fiorentina, on the other hand, aim to make amends for the unsuccessful 2018/2019 Serie A campaign as they finished the season in the danger zone. Anyhow, Arsenal are more of a team than Viola and we are tempted to put our money on Unai Emery’s troops, who are likely to stick to their attacking style of play.
