After a very poor start to their league season, Fiorentina turned on the style against Hellas Verona last weekend as they ran out 5-0 winners away to pick up their first points of the season.

They have had a tough time this summer but the manner in which they picked up the maximum 3 points in their last game could be the start of something good for them.

They have a real chance of building a winning run when the struggling Bologna come to town for this game.

Fiorentina have scored at least 2 goals in 11 of their last 14 home games and they could be afforded space to score many goals in this game again.

With five different scorers notching in their last game, they also look like they are not reliant on an individual player to get them their goals.

Bologna failed to win any of their away matches against the top 10 teams last season and they don’t look like a side that has improved much this season.

After picking up 4 points from their first two games of the season against Benevento and Torino, they lost 3-0 to Napoli in their last game and they will be struggling to get back to winning ways in this game against a Fiorentina side who are extremely good at home.
