Match Preview

Ahead of their Serie A (SA) home game against relegation-threatened Cagliari (18th), Fiorentina (eighth) received a boost from bitter rivals Juventus winning the Coppa Italia, as seventh place is now enough to make next season’s Europa League (EL).
The hosts are just two points behind Atalanta (seventh), who face AC Milan (sixth) in this round of fixtures. Their hopes are still dependent on their rivals slipping, but Fiorentina can keep things interesting with a third win in a row.
Fiorentina’s home form makes pretty reading, with four wins in six fixtures (W4, D1, L1). During the process, they have kept five clean sheets and scored ten goals. It’s only the league’s top-scorers Lazio that could score against them during this run.
Cagliari are in a battle of their own to avoid relegation, but are winless in four (D1, L3). They remain one point adrift of safety, but with teams from 14th to 18th separated by just two points, there is still life in their battle for survival.
But, their away form isn’t something that farms hope. Four straight losses and just one win in 2018 (W1, D2, L5) make them one of the worst travelling sides in SA. The relegation threat does bring the battling best out of teams, but it will take an exponential increment in their form to beat Fiorentina.
Players to watch: With six goals and an assist in eight games, Giovanne Simeone (FIO) is signing the season off in style.
Leonardo Pavoletti (CAG) has ten goals this season, but has never scored against Fiorentina in four SA encounters.
Stat attack: Fiorentina have won the last three encounters against Cagliari, keeping two clean sheets in the process.
Cagliari have conceded 11 goals in the first 15 minutes in league matches, the most by any side.
