Juventus vs Fiorentina Serie A Predictions

Serie A Juventus vs Fiorentina
Juventus vs Fiorentina Serie A

Saturday April 20th, 17:00

This is perhaps the standout tie of the Serie A round of fixtures with Juventus requiring just one point to secure their eighth consecutive league title against a side who are without a win in nine games in all competitions.

Predictions

Juventus need just one draw from their remaining six league matches to clinch their record eighth consecutive Scudetto title.

However, a much-changed side from Max Allegri went down 2-1 at SPAL last time out, ensuring that the champagne has been put on ice.

This fixture comes in the direct aftermath of Juve’s Champions League clash against Ajax and as has been custom this season, they are likely to field a side with plenty of rotations.

Fiorentina are on a rotten run of form, they are without a victory in nine matches across all competitions – a run which has seen them slip to 10th in the standings.

The hosts will be favourites to do more than enough to clinch the league title due to possessing home advantage, superior form and quality over Fiorentina.

The home side are favourites to win this game and it should be relatively comfortable – a 3-1 triumph for the Bianconeri would appear a likely outcome from it.

Betting Tips

56 goals have flown in across Fiorentina’s last 15 matches in all competitions while Juventus home games tend to have goals too – as evidenced in their recent 3-3 draw with Parma, 3-0 win over Frosinone, 4-1 triumph over Udinese and 3-0 victory against Atletico Madrid. Both these sides have fire power and this is among the best online betting odds for the matchday. 888Sport price over 3.5 goals at 16/5.

Juve have a reputation for ruthlessness and after last week’s defeat at SPAL will have irked coach Max Allegri and his players more than would be rational. They will want to wrap up the title in style and will show Fiorentina – who are badly out of form and absent in confidence – no mercy, with a convincing victory. 888Sport prices Juve 16/5 to win both halves.

Statistics

Head to Head

Juventus have won eight of their last nine meetings against Fiorentina including their 3-0 victory in Florence earlier in the campaign – Rodrigo Bentancur, Giorgio Chiellini and Cristiano Ronaldo were among the goals. Fiorentina’s last win in Turin was a Coppa Italia victory back in 2015.

Stats

  • Max Allegri’s side have lost just two Serie A matches all season, at Genoa and SPAL, but perhaps more remarkably, they have managed to win 27 of their 32 matches.
  • Juve have dropped just four points at home all season – winning 14 of their 16 outings at the stadium to date.
  • Fiorentina have struggled on the road this season, winning just three of their 16 Serie A matches away from home until this point.
  • Fiorentina’s one Serie A victory since January did come away from home however, when they triumphed 4-1 at SPAL back in February.
