Fiorentina host Juventus in Serie A on Sunday as Andrea Pirlo's men continue their march towards finishing in the top four.

Juventus are currently fourth in the league, one point behind AC Milan in second.

The Bianconeri looked in a strong position to finish in the top four last week, but their loss to Atalanta cast doubt over their chances. Pirlo will know that his side cannot afford any more slip-ups as the campaign reaches its end.

Meanwhile, Giuseppe Iacini's Fiorentina side are currently 13th on the table, only five points off the relegation zone.

A win on Sunday would potentially take La Viola to 12th place and a step closer to guaranteeing their safety. Iacini's side, however, have been in terrible form of late, having won only one of their last five games.

This is a must-win game for Juventus, and they cannot afford to drop any points against a struggling Fiorentina side.


Fiorentina vs Juventus Head-to-Head

As expected, Juventus have dominated the recent head-to-head meetings between the two sides. The Bianconeri have won three of their last five league meetings, with Fiorentina only winning one.

La Viola did, however, come away as 3-0 winners in the reverse fixture earlier this season.
