Arezzo vs Fiorentina Predictions and Odds
Arezzo, a Serie D team will face depleted top-division side Fiorentina for this friendly match.
Fiorentina to Win
Even though the team from Firenze is playing without some important players, their status of favorites isn't in question. This is a friendly match that will entail a lot of changes to the lineup, but as far as Fiorentina manager Vincenzo Italiano is concerned, this is an opportunity to test his currently available set of players for the second stage of the season.
Over 2.5 Goals
These teams only met once before, or at least what is recorded in recent times. They played four years ago in a friendly match that ended with Fiorentina winning 2-1. Of course, that game won't have much relevance for this one, but as far as these teams' ambitions go, they will try to make a good, offensive football match.

Fiorentina looking for some goals
Arezzo is a Serie D team that doesn't play sides from Serie A too often unless it's a friendly match or a Cup tie. They are doing very well this season in their competition grabbing second place after 13 rounds. They are tied for second as far as wins are concerned, they have eight on the record. They also have the best defense in the league allowing only eight goals, and they are the only team in the competition that conceded fewer than ten goals. When it comes to their forward line, they have scored 19 goals which are decent enough, but when we see their goalscorers, it is easily noticeable that they don't have a single player who dominates in front of the opposition's goal. Luca Castiglia and Roberto Convitto are their top goalscorers with three.
Arezzo's predicted starting lineup: Trombini, Ceccherini, Polvani, Romiti, Poggesi, Dema, Lazzarini, Settembrini, Forte, Gucci, Boubacar.
Fiorentina won't be satisfied with the way the first part of the season ended. They are only tenth in the league with five wins out of 15 games which are below the level the management or the fans are expecting from this team. They also have a negative goal difference at 18-20. The positive aspect of their season is that they managed to get some good results in the final few weeks of the season before it was halted for the World Cup. They had three wins in a row before losing their final match to the current champions AC Milan 2-1. They have some availability issues for this match, and the next couple of weeks at least as some players are at the World Cup, and some are injured.
Fiorentina's predicted starting lineup: Terracciano, Quarta, Biraghi, Ranier, Dodo, Mandragora, Duncan, Maleh, Bonaventura, Kouame, Cabral.
Arezzo: Giacomo Risaliti is injured.
Fiorentina: Szymon Zurkowski, Krzysztf Piatek, Sofyan Amrabat, Nikola Milenkovic, and Luka Jovic are at the World Cup. Pierluigi Gollini, Gaetano Castrovilli, Nicolas Gonzalez, and Ricardo Sottil are injured.
