Fiorentina vs Genoa

, KO: 17:30 Apr 15, 2024, Stadio Artemio Franchi
Genoa

Fiorentina continue their quest for a late European finish as they host Genoa in a Monday night Serie A fixture. Things have not been particularly smooth for La Viola but given their fine record in this fixture, they should have the upper hand over Genoa, who have also been far from their best lately.

It has been a difficult period for Fiorentina, who are winless in their last four Serie A matches. They have lost the last two fixtures in that run and were beaten 1-0 by Juventus last time out.

Sitting 10th on the standings, seven points off the top six, the task for Fiorentina will be to make a late push for one of the European places in the final weeks of the season. Vincenzo Italiano’s men head into Monday’s clash off the back of a 0-0 draw at Viktoria Plzen in a Europa League clash on Thursday.

While things have been generally rough for Fiorentina, they have fared slightly better at home with one defeat in the last six matches at the Stadio Artemio Franchi. Among their wins is a 5-1 hammering of Frosinone and a 2-1 victory over Lazio, although they have kept just one clean sheet in that run.

Genoa’ campaign has been somewhat worse than Fiorentina’s as they sit in the bottom half of the standings. However, there is no present relegation danger and sitting just five points off La Viola in 10th place, they will be looking to make a late push for a top half finish.

Alberto Gilardino’s men head into Monday’s clash off the back of a 2-1 come from behind victory over Verona in their previous Serie A fixture. That was a vital win for Genoa as it ended a run of two defeats and as many draws from their previous four matches.

The result at Verona is also part of some decent showings on their travels as they have lost just once in their last eight away matches. However, they have been plagued by too many draws in that run and held three times in their last five fixtures on the road.

How the bookies view it

Fiorentina have the upper hand among the bookies and are priced at 9/10 by 10bet to claim the win. A victory for Genoa is valued at 10/3 by bet365 while a draw is set at odds of 13/5 by William Hill.

Head to head

Fiorentina have a 14-5 advantage with seven 19 draws from 38 previous matches against Genoa. LA Viola have won the last three meetings, including a 4-1 victory in the reverse fixture back in September.

Players to watch

Nicolas Gonzalez is the leading scorer for Fiorentina with seven Serie A goals so far. The forward was also on target in the reverse fixture and is priced at 21/10 by BetVictor to get on the score sheet once again.

Genoa will be keen to capitalise on Fiorentina’s defensive frailties and will look to Albert Gudmundsson to provide the spark in attack. The striker has 12 Serie A goals this season and is priced at 10/3 by bet365 to find the net on Monday.

Anything else catch the eye?
