Fiorentina vs Juventus

by Colin on Serie A

The 14th round of Seria A will start on Friday, 5th of December at 20:45 CET at Stadio Artemio Franchi in Florence.

Fiorentina feeling good

„The Lilies” host the leader as 8th in the Seria A league table with 19 points. Vincenzo Montella’s team has started the season very well, but went through hesitant performances and now it seems that they are finding their form again. The „Violas” secured their place in Europa League knock out stage after the 2-1 win in France against Guingamp. Fiorentina is winner in Group K with 13 points after 4 wins and 1 draw, 6 points advantage ahead the second PAOK and 1 game left to the end of the group stages.
The team hosts Juventus after three consecutive away wins in all competitions. Cagliari was defeated at their ground last week with 4-0. Mario Gomez found the net for the first time from 250 days of drought. The Ex German International and Bayern Munich striker is accompanied by constant injuries after his move to Florence. The speculations around another Fiorentina player did not stop the whole summer and this was Juan Cuardado. The Colombian made very good World Cup run with his country Colombia. The big clubs went after him, but at the end he stayed for another year in Florence. Although his performances from the beginning of the season are inconstant. His goal from the win in Cagliari will give him even more confidence to improve his game for the upcoming games.

Pirlo, Adrea Pirlo
Juventus has won the derby game with Torino after a last second goal winner scored from the ageless Andrea Pirlo. The game was played under the heavy rain in Torino between the two rivals. This win left Juve on the top and kept the three point advantage ahead of Roma. The goal conceded from „The Old Lady” was the first in 6 games for the Turins and it came by a wonderful long run from Bruno Peres. The Swiss right back Stephan Lichsteiner was sent off, after he was booked with two yellow cards in less than 10 minutes. He will probably be replaced by Simone Padoin who is coming back in the squad from suspension. Except Lichsteiner’s suspension and doubts for Gianluigi Buffon who complain from pain in the back, Massimiliano Alegri will be able to use the rest of his first squad players.

Even teams
This game has the prerequisites to be real derby and it is from great importance for both teams. Juventus won against Fiorentina 13 times, lost 3 and the draws are 13. This is excellent start for the 14th round in Seria A.
