Juventus are still top of the heap in Italy and will travel to face Fiorentina on Friday night. Judging by the recent performances by Viola at home, I’m going to suggest we bet against them here at very big prices.
Juventus are, historically, Fiorentina’s bogey team – the team that they have suffered the most goals against and conceded the most goals in Serie A. They’ve been beaten 69 times and allowed 244 in 150 meetings.
Recent h2h does not look good either, with Fiorentina winning just 2 of the last 25 Serie A games against Juve. What’s more, they are not looking strong at home, and struggling to show dominance. You’ll find Fiorentina have scored the majority of their goals away from home, and at home they have failed to score in 67% of their matches!
Fiorentina have won 2 and lost 2 of their last 4 home games, but know that the 2 losses came against Roma and Napoli, the sides that occupy 2nd and 3rd below Juventus. They were beaten 2-0 here by Roma and 1-0 by Napoli, failing to score each time. Juventus brings a defence that have allowed just 5 goals all season, including just 2 on the road!
THE BETTING VERDICT
Juventus’ 4 game winning streak has seen them keep 3 clean sheets and allow just a solitary goal. They will stifle Fiorentina and get the win.
