- Fiorentina vs Roma
- Serie A, Round 36
- Date – 9/5/2022
- Starting time – 20:45 local time
- Venue: Stadio Artemio Franchi
Fiorentina Stats & Form
Fiorentina is currently in seventh place in Serie A with 56 points as many as Atalanta with 4 games to go in the Italian Serie A. They have won 17 games, lost 13 and played the league-low 5 draw matches.
They were one of the hottest teams starting the season with Dusan Vlahovic leading the top scorers list but in the middle of the season, the team management decided to accept the offer and sell the striker to the rival Juventus.
Fiorentina has struggled lately losing the last 4 games in all competitions, three of which in Serie A.
The Violets are coming off a 1-0 loss to AC Milan in the last round which is not a disaster but the 4-0 home loss to Udinese the previous week can be called as one. The last time Fiorentina scored was three weeks ago but they lost that game as well, 2-1 against a team from the relegation zone Salernitana.
Fiorentina is one of the better teams in Serie A when it comes to home games as they have 11 wins in 17 games with 2 draws and 4 losses.
Aleksandr Kokorin and Alfred Duncan are questionable for Fiorentina for Monday’s game against Roma.
Roma Stats & Form
Roma entered the season targeting one of the top 4 spots in the Serie A which will take them to the Champions League next season. Jose Mourinho failed to lead his team to that spot as they are currently fifth in the standing with 59 points, 10 less than Juventus who is fourth.
Roma has 17 wins, 10 losses and 8 draws so far this season,
On the road, they have won 7 games as many as they have lost with 3 draws.
In the last 5 Serie A games, Roma has 2 wins, 2 draws and one loss. “La Lupa” is coming off a scoreless draw at home against Bologna in the last round.
The last time they won in the domestic championship was on April 10th, 2-1 against Salernitana.
Nicola Zalewski and Jordan Veretout are questionable for Roma for the game in Florence.

Seven of the last ten games between these two have finished over 2.5 goals.
Fiorentina vs Roma Betting Odds
Fiorentina is a slight favourite going into this game mainly because they play at home. The odds for their win are at 142 while the odds for Roma’s victory are at 181. The draw is set at 250.
The total goals margin is set at 2.5 with -119 for over and -104 for under.
Both Fiorentina and Roma underachieved this season as their expectations were really high going into the season. They will probably play on the international scene next season but not in the desired competitions. Fiorentina’s recent struggles are mainly because they sold their top player Dusan Vlahovic to Juventus and the team attacking line was simply not the same after the Serbian youngest left Florence.
Roma is still in play to win the Europe Conference League this season but with failing to qualify for the Champions League next season, Jose Mourinho is on the hot seat. Both teams will enter this game with an urge to win and regain the winning mentality to close out the season. Both teams are offensively oriented and it is pretty easy to guess that this game will go over 2.5 goals.
