A win for either side will be important in their respective campaigns, especially for Juventus who have struggled all season.
Juventus sit 10th on the Serie A table, sixteen (16) points behind league leaders Napoli. In their last five competitive games, Juve have won two, lost two and drawn the other game. However, in their last game Juventus won 4-2 against Russian heavyweights Zenit St. Petersburg in the UCL with two goals from Paolo Dybala and a goal each from Morata and Chiesa.
Fiorentina are a point outside the European football places on the Serie A table. With 18 points after 11 games, Vincenzo Italiano’s men are 7th in the league. Fiorentina have won two and lost three of their last five competitive fixtures. Their last game was against Spezia in the league last week, where they won 3-0 at home.
The last five competitive meetings between Juventus and Fiorentina have seen Juve win two, Fiorentina win one and the other two ending in draws. In their last meeting, Alvaro Morata was on the scoresheet as his second half goal cancelled out Dusan Vlahovic’s first half penalty to end the match 1-1.
Both teams are not in good form coming into this game. However, Juventus have the upper hand, considering the quality of players on both sides. After their Champions League triumph over Zenit during the week, Massimiliano Allegri’s men will be motivated to win this game in Turin.
