Fiorentina vs Monza Match Analysis & Prediction
04/01/2023 8:30 pm
Fiorentina will be looking to remain in the top half of the standings when they play host to Monza at Stadio Artemio Franchi in Serie A on Wednesday.
After finishing in the top seven of Serie A for the first time in six seasons last time out, Fiorentina have not kicked on as much as they may have hoped to so far this campaign.
However, three victories from their last four matches prior to the domestic season breaking for the World Cup did at least allay any unlikely relegation concerns, with Juventus moving into the top half of the table as a result.
Despite that, Nikola Milenkovic’s unfortunate own goal in injury time did mean that they left things on a sour note in their last game, with AC Milan edging a nervy encounter 2-1 at San Siro.
Monza are extremely unlikely to be pushovers on Wednesday, having significantly improved their form themselves as their debut campaign in Serie A has progressed.
Two home victories against Hellas Verona and Salerniana in their last three matches prior to the break suggests that Monza have more than enough about them to beat the teams expected to be in and around their league position come the end of the season.
As such Raffaele Palladino will be hoping his side can punch above their weight against some of the bigger clubs in the division, having famously tasted victory against Juventus in his first game in charge.
