It has been all too rare in recent games where Fiorentina have kept a clean sheet. It will be a concern for them that Fiorentina have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 games, letting in 11 goals along the way.
Coming into this contest, Fiorentina haven't won against Roma in their last 7 league games.
Roma will come into the meeting following a 1-0 Conference League win with the defeat of Leicester City in their most recent game.

José Mourinho's Roma have slotted home a total of 8 times in the course of their latest 6 matches. The number of goals that they have conceded during those same clashes comes to 5.
Taking a look at their past results, Roma:
- have not been beaten by Fiorentina when they have played them away from home in the previous 4 league matches. Travelling fans have really enjoyed these clashes.
- haven’t won away from home in the past 2 league games.
Head to head
A review of their past head to head meetings stretching back to 03/04/2019 reveals that these encounters have been a source of anguish for Fiorentina. They have not been able to come away with any wins whatsoever while Roma have just been stronger than them, getting wins in 83% of those match-ups.
In all, 21 goals were shared by the two clubs during those clashes, with 6 for La Viola and 15 belonging to i Giallorossi. The average goals per game has been 3.5.
The previous league fixture featuring the two was Serie A match day 1 on 22/08/2021 and the score finished Roma 3-1 Fiorentina.

At the other end, Fiorentina got 11 attempts on goal with 8 of them on target. Nikola Milenković (60') was the scorer.
The referee was Gianluca Aureliano.
Team News: Fiorentina
There aren’t many personnel worries, with just the lone fitness concern for the Fiorentina gaffer Vincenzo Italiano to be concerned about from an otherwise fully-primed squad. Gaetano Castrovilli (Knee Surgery) is sidelined.
It seems likely that La Viola should use a 4-3-3 formation for this game, beginning the first half with Pietro Terracciano, Lorenzo Venuti, Nikola Milenkovic, Igor, Cristiano Biraghi, Giacomo Bonaventura, Lucas Torreira, Alfred Duncan, Nicolas Gonzalez, Arthur Cabral and Riccardo Saponara.
Team News: Roma
From a largely full-strength group of players, there’s only the sole fitness worry for the Roma boss José Mourinho to be concerned about. Henrikh Mkhitaryan (Hamstring Injury) won’t be in action.
We are inclined to think that i Giallorossi might utilise a 3-4-2-1 formation, giving starts to Rui Patricio, Gianluca Mancini, Chris Smalling, Marash Kumbulla, A. Maitland-Niles, Sergio Oliveira, Jordan Veretout, Matias Vina, Nicolo Zaniolo, Lorenzo Pellegrini and Tammy Abraham.
When taking all factors into account, Roma and Fiorentina won’t have much between them here, and goals could be hard to come by.
Little in this one, and it’s almost too close to call. We therefore think that it’s going to be a 0-0 score at the end of the 90.
