Serie A action on Sunday as Fiorentina and Verona meet at Stadio Artemio Franchi – 3:00pm GMT.

Sunday’s clash between Fiorentina and Verona, sees twelfth take on fourteenth in the League.

Fiorentina have six points to their name, going into this tie

Fiorentina come to this match on the back of a victory, having beaten Bologna 2-1 at Renato Dall’ara.

Also, a draw statistic of three in five fixtures is not all bad, but unfortunately will not bring the success Vincenzo Italiano’s men wishes for ultimately. With six points, they currently sit twelfth in the League. The breakdown for the team’s record is 1 wins, 2 losses and 3 draws having won one game, drawn three meetings, and lost two fixtures.

When Fiorentina host Verona, they will do so on the back of one victory and two draws on their own ground.

A victory for Fiorentina would put them on 9 points.

Fiorentina are likely to be missing six of their key players when they start Sunday’s game, due to injury and illness.

It’s five points so far for Hellas Verona this season, going into this match

With two wins in a row under his belt, Gabriele Cioffi takes his Verona team into this game full of confidence, and hopeful of another successive victory.

Also, Gabriele Cioffi knows that a run of three losses in six meetings for his Verona side, is going to be a tough run of form to change. However that is exactly what he must try to deliver. With five points (1W, 3L and 2D), they are established in fourteenth position in the League having won one game, drawn two matches, and lost three games.

Verona will travel to Fiorentina with a win record on the road that is quite unremarkable, with two darts and one losses.

Winning this fixture will see Hellas Verona on 8 points.

Verona may have to resort to second choice players, given the number of first choice players that are now unavailable through injury, illness or suspension.
