These Roma vs. Fiorentina predictions indicate that the home team may extend its unbeaten streak against the other team when the two teams square off at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday.
Even though Roma’s excellent form continued over the weekend, the Giallorossi left it late at San Siro. With only a few minutes remaining, Jose Mourinho’s team trailed by two goals before Roger Ibaez pulled one back and Tammy Abraham snatched a point.
Considering his performances from last term, the English striker has not had the best of seasons thus far, but that goal could be crucial. His confidence will return if he can get another one this weekend against Fiorentina.
That may very well occur, and Roma will unavoidably play it tight as usual, seeking a straightforward victory with few goals.
In addition, Roma will need three points to stay competitive with teams like Atalanta, Lazio, and Inter and in the running for a Champions League spot.
Since the start of the month, when Serie A resumed play, Fiorentina has earned four points from its two games. However, given the opposition, head coach Vincenzo Italiano will have anticipated at least that and is aware that this weekend’s game should be more challenging.
A surprise victory at Stadio Olimpico would be welcome, but a loss would widen the gap between the Viola and the clubs vying for European positions. It should result in a competitive game on Sunday.
Italiano does have a few injury problems to deal with though, so don’t expect too much of an attacking threat. It could be the home side that is forced to be on the front foot at the Stadio Olimpico.
Jose Mourinho will need to use Marash Kumbulla at the back since Roger Ibaez will miss this one after receiving another yellow card in the draw with Milan. However, there is some good news regarding injuries. Georginio Wijnaldum has made good strides and might re-join the team within the upcoming weeks.
Given that several key players are expected to miss the trip to the capital due to injury, Vincenzo Italiano may need to make a number of adjustments. There’s a chance that Terracciano won’t be there, but Pierluigi Gollini is prepared to step in.
