Fiorentina welcome Roma for a clash in the Serie A at Artemio Franchi, Firenze this coming Saturday.

Fiorentina are looking for a payback after suffering a disappointing defeat in their latest encounter with Roma but odds don't favour them to pull it off.

Fiorentina scored 17 times, conceded ten and held on for four clean sheets in their last ten games.

Roma are currently decent goalscorers, as they managed a bearable 12 goals in the past ten outings for an average of 1.2 goals a game. Their opponents scored a total of ten goals, and while Roma claimed four clean sheets, they conceded an average of one goals per match.

Fiorentina claimed a 2-0 win, while Roma answered back with a 2-0 win in their two most recent meetings.

Fiorentina vs Roma Prediction

Fiorentina Form

Fiorentina collected four points from their last three matches, starting with a 1-2 win against FC Basel 1893. It was followed by a 1-1 draw with Torino and a 1-2 defeat against Inter. Fiorentina managed a strong return of four wins from their previous six matches on home soil in the Serie A, where they also drew twice and lost none. They scored 12 goals and conceded three times.

Roma Form

Having collected three points from their previous three matches without winning, Roma are on the lookout for a win again. Against Bologna, they settled for a 0-0 draw, before splitting the points with Bayer Leverkusen in a 0-0 draw. In their latest match, they once again had to settle for a single point after drawing 2-2 against Salernitana. Roma managed to win just once in their past six away games in the Serie A. On top of winning once they also drew two as well as losing three, while scoring seven time and letting in four.

Fiorentina and Roma seem a fairly equal pairing right now, with not a lot to separate the two sides. As such, going for a draw in the betting market seem worth a punt.

Fiorentina so far pulled off a record of 13 wins, 11 draws and 12 defeats in the Serie A this season. Roma put 17 wins, nine draws and ten defeats on the board in the Serie A.
