Fiorentina hosts Roma

Fiorentina hosts Roma at the Stadio Artemio Franchi in a first game from the 17th round of the Serie A. Here we are going to deliver you our football tips tonight for this fixture.

Fiorentina are desperately looking for a win here. La Viola are without a win in their last six games in the Serie A. For the last time they recorded a win against Sassuolo in October. Because of this poor form the team is now 13th in the Calcio standings with 17 points. In 16 games played in the Serie A so far, Fiorentina have won just four of them.

Because of this shaky performance there are many rumours surrounding Fiorentina’s manager Vincenzo Montella. The press in Italy believes that Montella will be sacked if he doesn’t find a way to change the way the club performs.

During the weekend Fiorentina ended a run of four consecutive defeats in the league. La Viola hosted the leader Inter Milan and managed to steal a point from the Nerazzurri in the last minutes. Borja Valero opened the score for Inter, but in the last few minutes Duan Vlahovic managed to equalise for the hosts.

How are Roma doing? The Wolves are much more convincing than their next opponents. Right now Roma are fourth in the Serie A standings with 32 points. Only Inter Milan, Juventus and Lazio are ahead of them in the table.

Few days ago Roma recorded their 9th win in the league for the season. Paulo Fonseca’s boys hosted SPAL at the Olimpico and enjoyed a 3-1 win. Andrea Petagna opened the score for SPAL, but Roma secured the three points with an own goal Nenad Tomovic and goals from Diego Perotti and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

In our football tips tonight we can tell you that Roma are a better team than Fiorentina, but La Viola will have a precious advantage to play at home. In the previous round Fiorentina didn’t allow Inter Milan to beat them. Can they do the same against Roma?
