- Over 2.5 goals and BTTS has registered in four of Fiorentina’s last six Serie A games.
- La Viola have scored 13 and conceded 14 goals across their last six games.
- Spezia’s first three matches in Serie A have produced ten goals, with the newly promoted side scoring in two of those outings.
Strong in attack but poor at the back is becoming an increasingly fair assessment of this current Fiorentina side and we should see another high scoring contest this Sunday when La Viola square off against Spezia.
The season began in fairly dull but pleasing fashion for Viola as they edged out Torino 1-0 on the opening day, but Giuseppe Iachini’s men have since suffered back to back defeats including a pulsating 4-3 reverse at Inter on their penultimate start.
Fiorentina can be forgiven that result, but their defensive woes surfaced again on Matchday 3 when they were turned over 1-2 by Sampdoria at Artemio Franchi. La Viola have now scored 13 but conceded 14 goals in their last half dozen Serie A matches and Iachini will have surely used the recent international break to work with his unreliable backline.
Nothing but three points will do for the visitors this weekend when they travel to face newly promoted Spezia, who have themselves seen ten goals fly in across their first three top flight outings.
Vincenzo Italiano’s charges have suffered heavy defeats to Sassuolo (1-4) and Milan (3-0) either side of a 0-2 success at Udinese, so on balance it looks as though they may find Fiorentina a bit too strong on Sunday considering how effective La Viola are up front.
Over 2.5 goals and both teams to score is more tempting though here instead of backing the away side, however we’re supplementing our main tip with a 2-3 correct score prediction in favour of the away team.
