Fiorentina vs Juventus Preview

Fiorentina vs Juventus

Competition – Serie A

Stadium – Stadio Artemio Franchi

Date: 9th February 2018

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

Fiorentina would have preferred to play another opponent for this Friday’s league encounter as they have just returned to winning ways.

They were previously on a run of five matches without a win before beating Bologna last time out and that win has helped them get back into the race for a place in the top six.

They may have been struggling to win games but they do not seem to have problems scoring and it will be interesting to see if Juventus can shut them out here.

Fiorentina lost 1-0 to Juve earlier in the season.

It’s another opportunity for Juventus to challenge for the Serie A’s number one spot again as they head to Stadio Artemi.

The defending champions are currently on a solid run of form and head into this on a run of 10 straight wins.

More impressively, they have conceded in only one of those ten games.

Juventus’ current run of form has been built since the beginning of December and with Napoli also not willing to relinquish their hold on the top spot, the Bianconeri will most likely be going all out for the win here again.
