Our football match prediction:
Roma will be looking to bounce back from a 3-2 loss to Sampdoria when they host Fiorentina at their Stadio Olimpico on Tuesday evening. The Giallorossi aim to keep their hopes of winning Scudetto alive, meaning that this has to go down as a must-win game for the hosts, who are four points behind league leaders Juventus ahead of Matchday 23. The Romans are eager to keep their 100% record at home intact and seeing that the Viola have dropped a lot of points on the travels this term, we predict that Luciano Spalletti’s men will emerge triumphant in the Stadio Olimpico showdown. Fiorentina have been playing below expectations in the Italian top flight this season and they are unlikely to upset Roma in Tuesday’s football match in the “Eternal City”. Bosnian striker Edin Dzeko found the net in the 3-2 loss to Sampdoria and we predict that he will pose a big threat for the opposition defenders.
