A Close Contest Coming In Our Way?
Both sides need to win the match to stay out of relegation zone. The manager of Fiorentina, Giuseppe Lachini will field his side with a 3-5-2 formation. Dalbert Henrique had picked up a knock against Bologna in the previous match. So, he is doubtful to start against SPAL on Sunday. Their new recruit Frank Ribery is also out with an injury. Federico Chiesa's form will keep the manager worried ahead of this match. The attacker has managed to score only a couple of goals so far in Serie A this season.
On the other hand, SPAL will miss their star defender Nenad Tomovic in this match, as he was shown a direct red card against Hellas Verona in the previous match. Arkadiusz Reca, Mohamed Fares and Marco D'Alessandro are also absent from the squad because of injuries. So, it will not be an easy task for SPAL to get a win in this away tie. A close contest is certainly coming our way at the weekend.
As per BigPesa, the game is expected to have a couple of goals, with odds of 3.45 favouring the same.Published 09 Jan 2020, 18:20 IST
