Fiorentina are off to a poor start to the new calendar year
Violets have raised the bar high for themselves – they were very good in the 1st round. Especially in contrast to previous years, when frankly little was happening, and the ambitious club was hanging around the middle of the table. With the arrival of Vincenzo Italiano, everything has changed. The team, led by perennial scorer Dušan Vlahović, was confidently among the group of leaders – not among the “league championship quartet”, but among the claimants in the European competitions. But, as it seems, the Violet side are not really out of the winter break. Or maybe they were relaxed by the postponement of the game with Covid Udinese. On Monday, by the end of the half hour, the team got three goals in Friuli, and in the end they lost in a big way to Udinese. But then they managed to crush Napoli 5-2 away, and in the cup.
Genoa are already in last place
The Gryphons invited Shevchenko to fix the situation. But it only got worse. For a long time, the Ukrainian coach was excused – saying that the calendar is extremely difficult, and the infirmary is overcrowded. But still the statistics were too bad. And, most importantly, in January, when he managed to sign the newcomers, and the schedule became simpler, there was no progress. Another 1-1 on the field of Sassuolo could be credited to the outsider, yet he got a point on the field of a strong middleweight. But Genoa lost to their direct rival, La Spezia, a week ago. There was no answer to Bastoni’s early goal. As a result, the chances of survival have fallen even further – as well as the likelihood that Andriy will finish at least January in office. There are still no victories in Serie A, after all. And in the end, it was all over for Tsar on Saturday.
In their last 16 matches, there have been more than 2/3 draws – 11 times. Genoa have won twice and Fiorentina three times, including an away win this September.
Without Shevchenko, it certainly won’t get any worse. But it’s still unlikely to be a dramatic improvement either. We bet on the home team’s victory with a -1 goal margin (odds – 1.71).
