Fiorentina will visit Torino, a mid-table team on Monday night in an attempt to close the gap on fifth-placed Juventus.
In recent seasons, the two sides met 22 times. Torino has won three and Fiorentina 10, respectively. Both teams have scored 68%, with 2.77 goals being the average.
Torino lost 1-0 against Inter Milan in their most recent match. I expected more of Torino. They lost three points because they were not concentrating in the last third.
Fiorentina lost 1-1 to Verona in their last match. That was a lesson they learned. You don’t always get good results if you have more possession or shots on goal. Fiorentina scored in the 81st minutes, despite not having a convincing start to the half.
Torino has been dominant at home since the beginning of the season. They have won six of their ten home games. While Torino is one of the best home teams in the league they are not perfect. They are not as strong as they might have expected with a 30% difference in home goals.
Fiorentina has collected 11 points from six previous league games. Still, they have much to prove on the road. Fiorentina is averaging 1.30 points per away match, which is slightly less than their home record. They will need to be more defensively compact to improve their results. Fiorentina has only managed to keep a goal difference in 10% away games.
Fiorentina is one of the most exciting teams in Serie A this year. They have a fast-paced, fluid football style that has been captivating.
Manager Vincenzo Italiano, who arrived from Spezia to Fiorentina in the summer, has been a great manager at Fiorentina, winning 10 out of 19 league games.
Fiorentina has been able, without the distractions of European football this year, to concentrate all their resources on the blossoming Serie A. They are poised to return to the continental stage in the new year.
The Italians last competed in Europe in 2016-17, and are currently in Europa League. A win Monday could help them rise the table if fifth-placed Juventus drops points.
Their strong form this season is due to Dusan Vlahovic’s performances, who has scored 16 goals despite losing against Verona in their last match.
Vlahovic scored in six of his eight Serie A matches. The 21-year old has only missed back-to-back goals once this season. This suggests that Torino’s defenders may be in for a long day.
