Their more recent scorelines show that things are going according to plan in the Fiorentina defence. La Viola have kept it tight, resulting in the number of goals that have gone in at their end over the course of their past 6 outings standing at 4. That kind of pattern won’t necessarily be continued into this match, of course.

Team News: Fiorentina
Fiorentina boss Giuseppe Iachini has a full complement, with no fitness concerns whatsoever coming into this clash thanks to a completely injury-free group ready to go.
We are thinking that La Viola will possibly opt for a 3-5-2 formation this time, utilising Pietro Terracciano, Julián Illanes, Federico Ceccherini, Nikola Milenkovic, Pol Lirola, Bobby Duncan, Riccardo Saponara, Valentin Eysseric, Lorenzo Venuti, Federico Chiesa and Dusan Vlahovic.
Team News: Torino
Torino boss Marco Giampaolo has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Wilfried Stephane Singo (Shoulder Injury) and Daniele Baselli (Ruptured cruciate ligament) are not ready for selection.
We are inclined to think that Il Toro seem most likely to make use of a 3-4-3 system, going with Antonio Rosati, Armando Izzo, Bremer, Koffi Djidji, Alejandro Berenguer Remiro, Sasa Lukic, Tomas Rincon, Cristian Daniel Ansaldi, Simone Zaza, Simone Verdi and Andrea Belotti.
Here is a game where Torino will really need to work well to be putting a goal past this Fiorentina side who we reckon will manage to get a goal of their own in a winning performance.
That’s why our selection here is for a very competitive game with a 1-0 win for Fiorentina at the end of this one.
Looking forward to this.
