Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Stadio Artemio Franchi will host the match between Fiorentina and Atalanta. The Viola are on a three-game winless run in the Serie A ahead of the visit of the Orobici and it is no surprise they are sitting in the bottom half of the table at the moment. The club chiefs have big ambitions for the 2016/2017 Serie A campaign, but Fiorentina will have to improve their game if they are to rejoin the race for a place in European competitions. Their next rivals Atalanta did remarkably well to beat star-studded Napoli at the weekend, but seeing that the Orobici struggle on the travels, they definitely face an uphill task in Sunday’s football game against Fiorentina. The Viola want this win more than their opponents and that is the main reason why we predict Paulo Sousa’s troops will pick up all three points from the game against Giampiero Gasperini’s team.
Highlighted Player (Anton Tatarusanu):
Anton Ciprian Tatarusanu is one of Romania’s most famous goalkeeper at the moment, and he has surprisingly spent the majority of his career up to date in his native country. The highly rated shot-stopper joined the most famous club on domestic stage Steaua via Juventus Bucuresti and Gloria Bistrita and he would go on to spend next seven years in the capital, making over 130 league appearances and featuring in over 40 matches in European competitions.
The big club move finally materialised in the summer of 2014 as he waited his contract to expire before signing for Fiorentina, and he quickly established himself as the number one goalkeeper at Artemio Franchi.
When it comes to international stage, Tatarusanu has spent much of his career competing with Costel Pantilimon for the starting berth in the national team, and he has emerged a winner, making 30 odd appearances for the Tricolorii since 2010. Bar any surprises, Tatarusanu will make his debut appearance at major tournaments at the Euro 2016 finals.
