Our match prediction:
The battle for the third position will open the round 28 of the Serie A, as Roma host Fiorentina. Stephan El Shaarawy’s first brace for i Giallorossi against Empoli (3-1) secured his team their sixth consecutive triumph in the league, and the 3rd position in the overall standings. Il Faraone has been of the highest standard since his return to Italy and a spot-on acquisition of Spalletti. The Italian manager decided not to change the winning formula in this match, so he left Francesco Totti on the bench once again. Their poor relationship certainly does not affect the rest of the team, as they are impressive of late. Fiorentina, on the other hand, will be looking for revenge after being defeated in the reverse fixture. The Viola triumphed in their last two visits at Stadio Olimpico, but red-hot Roma plan to arrest this negative trend and, judging by their outstanding form, we believe they will be successful in such a venture. We predict a spectacle for the fans and a win for the hosts.
Highligted Player (De Rossi):
