The Roma vs Fiorentina match will be played on Tuesday, February 7, at the Olimpico stadium, Rome. Roma is currently 3rd on the table with 47 points, while Fiorentina is currently 7th on the table with 37 points.

STATS

  • Roma had 5 victories in a row in all competitions before Sampdoria defeated them by 3-2 in Serie A last weekend. They bounced back nicely, after defeating Cesena by 2-1 in Coppa Italia.
  • Napoli eliminated Fiorentina from Coppa Italia and that was their only defeat in their last 7 matches in all competitions.
  • Edin Dzeko scored a goal in each of Roma's last 4 matches.

HEAD TO HEAD

In their previous 10 meetings Roma recorded 5 victories, Fiorentina recorded 3 victories, while 2 matches ended as a draw. In 7 out of those 10 games we saw 2 or 3 goals.

AS ROMA NEWS

Sampdoria probably ended Roma's title ambitions last Sunday. They are now trailing behind Juventus by 7 points and it seems that the history repeated itself again. Roma failed to step up and make that final step towards the Serie A title, although they were the second best team in the league in 2 out of the last 3 years. Of course, they will fight until the end and they still have to play against Juventus at home, so eventual victory in that game can at least bring the hope back. Mohamed Salah, Alessandro Florenzi, Juan and Diego Perotti are injured for the forthcoming match.

FIORENTINA NEWS

Fiorentina is desperate to reach one of the first 5 places on the table and qualify for European competitions again. They are currently trailing by 5 points behind 5th placed Inter, but they also have a game in hand. In the last 4 seasons Fiorentina finished in the top 5 every time, so if they fail to do so again it will be very disappointing for their fans. Nikola Kalinic, Ciprian Tatarusanu and Gonzalo Rodriguez are injured for the forthcoming match.

SUMMING UP!

Roma is certainly the favorite to win the forthcoming match, but these two teams are traditionally playing very tight and exciting matches, so we expect the same on Tuesday.
