Monday night action in Serie A takes us to Verona, as the relegation-threatened hosts welcome Fiorentina to town. Both sides come into this fixture in disappointing form, but a win for either could be essential come the end of the campaign when it comes to their survival chances.
Serie A Preview
Hellas Verona will be looking to make home advantage count this week, as they bid to move out of the bottom three places in the Serie A standings. Their recent form isn’t the worst in the league, as they have picked up just one defeat over their last five. However, that defeat was inflicted in their previous fixture, which ended a run of four without loss. But, over that four-game period, Verona picked up two victories and was held to two draws.
They were slightly unfortunate in their previous fixture against Roma, as they were narrowly edged out. Verona dominated the possession on the road against Jose Mourinho’s side, but they were restricted to just a single shot on target. They will need to be more productive with the ball on Monday evening.
This also looks set to be an important fixture for Fiorentina, as they are by no means out of the relegation scrap at present. They sit eight points above the drop zone, but their recent form has been extremely concerning. Over their last five, they have failed to win, and they have been beaten on three occasions.
Fiorentina was able to avoid suffering a third straight loss in their last Serie A fixture, as they battled back to earn a 1-1 draw against Empoli. Arthur Cabral scored the equalising goal with just five minutes remaining, but they will need to be much better on the road on Monday.
Hellas Verona vs Fiorentina Head to Head
Fiorentina come into this game, having gone six without defeat against Hellas Verona. However, over that period, they have picked up just two wins. Four of the last six have ended in draws, including this exact fixture last term, which ended in a 1-1 scoreline.
Hellas Verona vs Fiorentina Prediction
This will be a huge game in Serie A for Hellas Verona on Monday evening, and their recent form has been steady enough to suggest that they could win maximum points. We will be siding with the hosts, but Fiorentina will be dangerous on the counter-attack.
