Our prediction for this Serie A match:
After dropping two points in a 1-1 draw with Monza, Fiorentina will be aiming to return to winning ways when they take on Sassuolo on Saturday afternoon. The Viola have been having their ups and downs in the Italian top flight, and, no doubt, they need to start winning on a regular basis if they are to represent Italy in European competitions next term. Morocco midfielder Sofyan Amrabat returns to the starting XI, while Ricardo Sottil remains on the sidelines with a back injury.
Serbia forward Nikola Jovic is pushing for a start as well, while Nico Gonzalez is a major doubt. The Neroverdi, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 2-1 loss to relegation-threatened Sampdoria, which is probably the main reason why we are going to bet on Fiorentina. Both Maxime Lopez and Mert Muldur are likely to miss the game with injuries for the visiting side.
Highlighted Player (Christian Kouame):
Christian Kouame is an Ivory Coast international who has been playing for Serie A side Genoa since 2018. Kouame started his youth career at Prato and after ending his loan spells with the likes of Sassuolo and Inter, he returned to Stadio Lungobisenzio.
The 185-cm-tall forward made his professional debut with Prato on September 6, 2015 in a 2-1 loss to Pisa. Christian Kouame started the match, but he was replaced by Alberto Aladje after 66 minutes. The Genoa attacker, though, has yet to earn a call-up for the Ivory Coast national team. He has two caps for the Ivory Coast U23 team, but he is still eyeing his senior team debut.
His main position is centre-forward, but he is used as both left and right winger as well. The Genoa footballer was born in Abijan on December 6, 1997 and he has a contract with the Rossoblu until June 30, 2023.
