Fiorentina to Win to Nil

Fiorentina are enjoying a superb purple patch and La Viola showcased their confidence last weekend when they won 1-0 at Inter Milan. Fiorentina have now won five times on the trot in Serie A and eight matches in succession in all competitions, and more success should be in the offing when they host 17th-placed Spezia on Saturday. The host’s solid defence has recorded shutouts in four of their last five matches and our first Fiorentina vs Spezia prediction backs them to win to nil again.

Under 2.5 Goals

Fiorentina’s recent spike in results has been powered by some excellent defensive displays, however as solid as they are at the back, they haven’t been overly prolific further up the pitch and as consequence, many of their matches have been low-scoring affairs. Indeed, each of La Viola’s last three assignments in Serie A have featured under 2.5 goals and their encounter with modest scorers Spezia on Saturday has the makings of another game of slender margins.

Let's take a closer look at the latest markets, odds and probability figures ahead of Saturday’s match-up featuring Fiorentina – Spezia below.

Draw odds: 19/5 (4.8) – 20.8%

Fiorentina are the expected winners of Saturday’s tussle and the probability of a home win has been set at 69.9%. If you think there will be more excitement than we have anticipated, you can put a stake on over 2.5 goals at 8/11 (1.73 – 57.9%).

Fiorentina vs Spezia Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates, Fiorentina vs Spezia lineups and team news for Saturday’s fixture below.

Fiorentina

Fiorentina have close to a clean bill of health this week with keeper Salvatore Sirigu and attacker Luka Jovic listed as their only confirmed absentees. Midfielder Alfred Duncan is considered a doubt meanwhile. La Viola's 1-0 win at Inter Milan last week highlighted the self-belief at their disposal at present.

Predicted Lineup for Fiorentina: Terracciano – Dodo, Martinez, Igor, Biraghi – Mandragora, Bonaventura, Ikone, Castrovilli, Saponara – Cabral

Spezia

João Moutinho has a muscle complaint and is a doubt for Spezia this week, though they have few problems to trouble them elsewhere. Spezia drew 1-1 at home to fellow strugglers Salernitana last weekend and they are still hovering just above the drop zone in Serie A.

Predicted Lineup for Spezia: Dragowski – Amian, Ampadu, Caldara, Nikolaou – Ekdal, Bourabia, Kovalenko – Verde, Gyasi, Shomurodov

Player to Watch – Cristiano Biraghi

Fullback Cristiano Biraghi is one of the unsung heroes at Fiorentina and the defender put in another excellent shift when La Viola beat Inter Milan 1-0 last weekend. The 30-year-old made four tackles and completed three clearances during another robust showing and Biraghi will be aiming to hit those heights again on Saturday.
