ACF Fiorentina pursues top six

ACF Fiorentina meets with Atalanta BC as they slowly chip in the doors of the top six in the Premier League league table. Fiorentina just needs a win in order to have a chance for the race to the top six. Atalanta on the other hand will most likely enter the top six, due to their current standing. In the league table, Atalanta is at the sixth spot with 48 points, while Fiorentina is at the ninth with 41 points. A top six finish for these two teams qualifies them for the Europa League, with chances of entering the Champions League. This meeting will be on April 18, 2023, at 2:45 AM (GMT+8), as Fiorentina play as hosts.

These two teams already played a lot of matches already in their history, so there is no unfamiliarity between them. From their last 44 matches, it was the hosts who were able to record more wins with 19. The visitors on the other hand has 10 victories while the remaining 15 games are all drawn. Moreover, the host has a good momentum coming into this match as they are unbeaten in their last seven league matches. This is probably their best record in the league after an eight-game unbeaten run in 2018. The visitors on the other hand have won five of their last eight games against the hosts in the league. With that being said, these two teams surely have the confidence to play in this match.

Serie A: ACF Fiorentina

Fiorentina is currently at the ninth of the league table with 41 points across their names. An additional three points through this match will increase their chances of entering the top six. However, if they win in this match, they could only retain their spot with 44 points, but it is still huge for them. During their last match, they were held in a 1-1 draw against Spezia. Since the draw, they are now needing to double their efforts to climb up the league table. They can only do this though if they can address their issues ahead of this match. In this way, they can play an improved game, and will be capable of to pack a punch on their day.

Nicolas Gonzalez is a doubt in this match as it is still unsure if he can recover from a knock or not. Meanwhile, Sofyan Amrabat, and Luka Jovic might be put to reserve for this game.

Atalanta on the other hand is at the sixth place in the league table with 48 points across their names. They are a squad who is most likely to have a spot in the top six, as they still have four point lead. However, if they can win in this match, they can widen their gap from the squad at the seventh. Atalanta have been battling with inconsistency this season, an issue they need to address. In fact, they suffered a 2-0 defeat against Bologna on their last match, a record they do not want to continue. They still have a chance for a top four finish, but it will only be possible if they can improve their game. Guys like Duvan Zapata, and Mario Pasalic are badly needed of their squad to step-up.

Mario Pasalic though is a doubt in this match, as he lasted for only 24 minutes on their last match. Fortunately, Merih Demiral might come back in this game. Meanwhile, Teun Koopmeiners might also return here.
