THE TEAM NEWS

FIORENTINA

  • Fiorentina made it four games without a win as they were defeated by Lazio on Saturday but the outcome could have been very different after the visitors had taken the lead midway through the first half.
  • Franck Ribery gave Fiorentina the lead and they looked like they would be able to hang on until a lapse in concentration saw them concede a penalty which Lazio were able to level from before the hosts struck a winner inside the final 10 minutes.
  • Substitute Dusan Vlahovic was shown a late red card so he will be missing for this contest and he will join Martin Caceres on the sidelines but Fiorentina appeared to avoid any injury issues at the weekend.

SASSUOLO

  • Sassuolo played out their second consecutive 3-3 draw as they produced a brilliant late fightback to earn a point having trailed by two goals with less than 15 minutes remaining on the clock in their game with Hellas Verona.
  • Jeremie Boga pulled Sassuolo level after they had fallen behind just into the second half but Verona scored twice which looked set to give them the win until Boga notched his second of the game with just 13 minutes left and Rogerio scored the all-important equaliser in the seventh minute of stoppage time.
  • Sassuolo have shown their never say die attitude in abundance in their last two matches to earn two draws from losing positions late in the games but they will hope to end their three-game run without a win as they head to Fiorentina with Stefano Turati likely to return in goal following injury.

THE PREDICTION

Sassuolo have shown great character in their last two matches but will hope to return to winning ways as they head to Fiorentina. The hosts are without a win in four after narrowly losing to Lazio at the weekend and they too will be eager to pick up the points, especially as they sit in relatively close proximity of the relegation zone. Fiorentina often keep things tight at home but that may be difficult with Sassuolo arriving on the back of two high-scoring games with another one likely here.
