Fiorentina hosts Atalanta
Fiorentina hosts Atalanta in a first 1/2-final from the Coppa Italia. This game is going to be played at the Stadio Artemio Franchi in Florence on Wednesday night. Here are our winning soccer predictions for this fixture.
Fiorentina reached the 1/2-finals of the competition after an incredible 7-1 win over Roma in the previous round. It’s really unexplainable what happened on this day, because nobody really expected that the home side could be so dominant over a strong team like Roma. It was one of the most humilating defeats the Wolves have experienced in the recent yers.
Federico Chiesa was the big hero of the night, scoring a hattrick in Robin Olsen’s net. Giovanni Simeone added two more goals for Fiorentina, while Luis Muriel and Marco Benassi also scored for Stefano Pioli’s team. The Serbian international Aleksandar Kolarov scored Roma’s only goal in the match.
If La Viola manage to repeat this performance against Atalanta on Wednesday, for the club from Bergamo it won’t be easy.
But Atalanta also have a huge reason to be confident. In the previous round the Nerazzurri eliminated the strongest team in the country Juventus, beating the Old Lady with 3-0 in Bergamo. Timoty Castagne opened the score for Atalanta, while the Colombian striker Daniel Zapata finished the job with two goals in Juve’s net. It was a really incredible day for Atalanta and their fans.
Both teams proved in the previous round that they are strong enough to challenge for the trophy. Beating teams like Roma and Juventus in this fashion is a proof that Fiorentina and Atalanta are very strong teams. But now only one of them can reach the final. And this is the first leg of their duel at the 1/2-finals.
These are our winning soccer predictions for the Coppa Italia 1/2-final between Fiorentina and Atalanta. Good luck!
