Our football match prediction:
After playing out a goalless draw with Atalanta at Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia Fiorentina recorded back-to-back wins over Cagliari and Crotone and they will be looking to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they host Bologna at their Stadio Artemio Franchi on Sunday afternoon. The Viola aim to stay in the race for a place in European competitions and this has to go down as a must-win game for the hosts. Bologna, on the other hand, outplayed the likes of Sassuolo and Chievo in previous two league fixtures, but Fiorentina are likely to pose a much bigger threat for the Rossoblu than their previous rivals. Bologna are not regarded as good travelers and they are unlikely to upset the Viola at Stadio Artemio Franchi. Nikola Kalinic scored a late winner for Paulo Sousa’s team in the 1-0 triumph over Crotone and we predict that he will lead the attack for the hosts in Sunday's football game against the Rossoblu.
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.
