Fiorentina hosts SPAL
Fiorentina hosts SPAL in a game from the 5th round of the Italian Serie A. Here are our predictions football 1×2 for this clash at the Stadio Artemio Franchi in the beautiful city of Florence.
Fiorentina are currently 6th in the league standings with 7 points won from 4 games played. La Viola started the season with two consecutive wins, but in their last two games Fiorentina won just one point against Napoli and Sampdoria. You can be sure that now Stefano Pioli’s team will try to bounce back and return on the winning road.
SPAL are the pleasant surprise of the season so far. This small club is currently 3rd in the Serie A standings with 9 points and a record of 3 wins and one defeat. Last season SPAL were fighting to avoid relegation, but since the start of the new campaign they are just brilliant.
In the previous round SPAL achieved their third win for the season, beating Atalanta with 2-0 at home. Both goals for the winning team were scored by Andrea Petagna, who was just lethal in this game.
Can SPAL continue like this until the end of the season? Probably not. But it doesn’t mean that they can’t aim for a respectable finish in the middle of the table, for example. Everything which avoids fighting against relegation would be a massive success for the team.
As for Fiorentina, the club’s fans are still dreaming about something more than the usual midtable finish at the end of the season. Chasing a Champions League spot is maybe too much for them, but winning a qualification for Europa League could be a realistic goal.
These are our predictions football 1×2 for the Serie A game between Fiorentina and Spal at the Artemio Franchi. We wish you good luck.
