Serie A returns with a fresh set of fixtures as Fiorentina play host to Sassuolo at the Stadio Artemio Franchi on Sunday.

The hosts will head into the game aiming to get one over the visitors after failing to win any of the last three meetings between the sides.

Fiorentina progressed to the quarter-finals of the Coppa Italia last Wednesday as they claimed a 2-1 win over Benevento on home turf.

Their cup performance was in keeping with their impressive form in Serie A, where they are on a three-game winning streak.

This upturn in form has seen Fiorentina rise to fifth place in the Serie A table, two points above Juventus.

Meanwhile, Sassuolo returned to winning ways in style as they secured a 2-1 win over Lazio at the Mapei Stadium-Città del Tricolore last time out.

Prior to that, Alessio Dionisi’s men were involved in a share of the spoils in two consecutive games, playing out 2-2 draws with Napoli and Spezia.

With 23 points from 17 games, Sassuolo are presently 12th on the log, level on points with Hellas Verona.
