Fiorentina will be keen to pick up where they left off last week when they welcome Udinese to the Stadio Artemio Franchi on Sunday evening in Serie A.
The hosts are unbeaten in their last four Serie A games against Udinese, scoring at least two goals in each match. Furthermore, Fiorentina have won each of their last 10 home games against Udinese in the Italian top-flight (scoring 3.1 goals on average) – the Bianconeri’s last league win in Florence was back in November 2007.
Giovanni Simeone will likely prove hard to handle and he has had a hand in seven goals in his last five Serie A appearances, scoring five and assisting two.
If Udinese are to leave Tuscany having avoided defeat they will be pleased and the last time they went three games without losing at the start of a season they went on to finish third back in 2011/12.
Fiorentina: Lafont; Milenkovic, Pezzella, Hugo, Biraghi; Benassi, Edimilson, Gerson; Church, Simeon, Eysseric.
Udinese: Scuffet; Larsen, Ekong, Nuytinck, Samir; Behrami, Fofana; Machis, De Paul, Pussetto; Lasagna.
