OUR man in Italy, Marco Di Cosmo (@scioltz) returns to look at Saturday afternoon's action from Serie A.
Fiorentina vs Verona | Saturday 19th December 2020, 14:00 | Premier Sports
Last time we backed Fiorentina and got our stake returned on the Asian Handicap market, but Viola have shown to be real value considering how they played against Sassuolo. So, I like to stick to my ideas and back them to get something against Verona.
No stats are not in Fiorentina’s favour, but I want to trust new manager Cesare Prandelli. He’s working to find a new balance for this team, and the well-seasoned talents of Jose Callejon and Frank Ribery seem to have found their form in this squad.
Fiorentina are odds-against, at home, and facing Verona. I respect the visitors as a very fierce team but I think this is a bit too much. I guess the market has over-reacted after their win at the Olimpico against Lazio and at Bergamo against Atalanta.
But, Lazio came from a very troubled period with lots of matches and UCL actions without a deep roster, and Atalanta have always shown to be erratic against small teams. I want to trust Fiorentina again and I am backing them simply to come out with the three points.
