Our football match prediction:
All eyes will be on Stadio Artemio Franchi when Fiorentina and Juventus face each other on Matchday 20 in what is expected to be the most entertaining game of Sunday’s program. The Bianconeri recorded a routine 3-0 win over Bologna at the weekend and thanks to the triumph the reigning champions moved one step closer to defending their trophy. Juve aim to get their job done in the national championship as soon as possible and we predict that coach Max Allegri is going to field the best possible side against Fiorentina. The Viola aim to put an end to their three-match winless run in the Italian top flight, but they will have a big fish to fry in Sunday’s clash against the title holders. Gonzalo Higuain extended his goal-scoring run at the weekend and the former Napoli man is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders.
Highligted Player (Nenad Tomovic):
Nenad Tomovic is a Serbian football player who was born in Kragujevac on 30 August, 1987. The centre back, who is capable of playing as a full back as well, started his senior career at Crvena zvezda, making 40 league appearances for the former European champions. Tomovic moved to Italy in 2009, signing a deal with Genoa, but he played no more than 14 league games for the Rossoblu. After ending his loan-spell with Lecce Nenad Tomovic joined Fiorentina in 2012 in a co-ownership deal (Genoa and Fiorentina). The Serbian international quickly established himself as a first-team regular and he made 24 league appearances for the Viola in the 2015/2016 Serie A campaign. Nenad Tomovic made his Serbia debut on 14 December, 2008 in a 1-0 loss to Poland, but he was forced to miss the 2010 FIFA World Cup through injury. Speaking of his youth career, Tomovic played for the likes of Radnicki Kragujevac, FK Rad and Red Star Belgrade.
Highlighted Team (Juventus):
Juventus are considered one of the greatest European football clubs. The Bianconeri (The White and Blacks) have won two Champions League trophies (1985, 1996) and they did well to clinch three UEFA Cup titles (1977, 1990, 1993). The Italian giants have won 32 Serie A trophies and it is well known that a number of star players were part of Juve in the past. The likes of Alessandro Del Piero, Zinedine Zidane, Michel Platini, Lilian Thuram, Filippo Inzaghi, Pavel Nedved and David Trezeguet all played for Juventus, whilst legendary goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon has yet to retire. Juve were stripped two domestic trophies during the “Calciopoli” scandal, but despite being relegated to Serie B, the club quickly brought glory days back to Turin. The Bianconeri used to play their home games at Stadio delle Alpi, but nowadays they welcome their rivals at Juventus Stadium. The capacity of the stadium is 41,475. La Vechhia Signora (The Old Lady) is yet another nickname of the club. Juve’s biggest rivals are Torino and the two local rivals take on each other in the Turin derby.
