JUVENTUS – FIORENTINA – ITALY SERIE A
December 13 2015, Juventus Stadium, Torino 19:45 GMT +0
Today we have a interesting match between two of the top teams in Serie A. 5th placed Juventus, the title defenders will host 2nd placed Fiorentina. Both of the teams showed us they can compete for the title season, especially Fiorentina who managed to be 2nd in Serie A. Juventus on the other side is on the rise, after a bad start in the league, winning 7 out of 10 games in serie A, with 1 draw and 2 losses, and are currently on a winning run of 6 matches in serie A.
Juventus will start the match withouth Hernandes and there are still doubts over Roberto Pereyra and Sami Khedira, on the plus side Paul Pogba is back after suspension. The 6 win streak in domestic cup raised confidence of Juventus players, which will surely be seen on the pitch tonight.
Fiorentina on the other side has shown how strong they are this year with being 2nd on the table and are coming from a win against Udinese last week with a respectable score of 3:0. Jakub Blaszczykowski is to miss the match for Fiorentina due to injury.
The history between these two teams is in favor to Juventus as they lost only 1 of 23 home matches against Fiorentina, but can they extend that “tradition”? This is also a really important match for Juventus, if they want to compete for league title, as 3 points would bring them only 6 points behind Inter, who is currently on the top of the league.
That’s why my prediction is Juventus to win, as they are a better opponent in this matchup.
