Fiorentina vs Juventus - Competition: Italian Serie A

Fiorentina team come from a triple win away including the Europa League competition, where they are already qualified for the next round. On Sunday, Montella’s team had a great performance vs. Cagliari, having won 4-0 with 2 scores by Mati Fernandez, 1 by Cuadrado and 1 by Mario Gomez, who scored his first goal of the season after 250 days of fasting. The home team are not having the best record in Florence (2-2-2) in this season, compared with the last 2 seasons and on Friday, against the leader of the chart, they will look for the 3rd home win of the season (the last one was on the 29th October vs. Udinese). Montella has some issues in attack but with Gomez back in shape and Cuadrado, always tough to stop for every defense, he could decide to play a defensive match and count on quick counterattacks.

Juventus are once again the Serie A leader in all categories after 13 rounds: points, goals scored and clean sheets. Massimiliano Allegri and his team won a emotional derby on Sunday just in the last 5 seconds thanks to an extraordinary Andrea Pirlo shot. The Bianconeri scored the 1-0 in the first half by a penalty converted by Vidal. Then Torino found a wonderful goal with Bruno Peres after an 80 meter run (the only goal conceded from Juventus in the last 6 official games), before Pirlo won the game. The swiss defender Lichtsteiner will miss the match due to suspension but Padoin, back from suspension, should take his place. The rest of the lineup is the same that faced Torino on Sunday with some doubts on Buffon, who still suffers from back pain.

Probable lineups:
AC Fiorentina: Neto – Savic, Rodriguez, Basanta – Tomovic, Fernandez, Pizarro, Valero, Alonso – Cuadrado, Gomez .
Juventus: Buffon – Padoin, Bonucci, Chiellini, Evra – Marchisio, Pirlo, Pogba – Vidal – Llorente, Tevez.
