In the first round of Serie A 2020-2021, fans will witness the match between Fiorentina and Torino on the Artemio Franchi field. Having experienced an unsuccessful season together, now the two teams are aiming for higher goals in the new season. Whether, Fiorentina with home advantage will retain the first 3 points, or Torino will create a little surprise right in the opening round.

In Serie A, the host Fiorentina is a team with rich traditions and ambition to conquer titles. However, over the years, their performance has not been very satisfactory. Even coach Giuseppe Iachini and his teacher had to spend more time worrying about relegation rather than winning a place in the European Cup group. Last season, almost during the first leg, Fiorentina struggled to get each point in order not to be pushed into the danger zone. It seemed that the home team of Artemio Franchi would be in danger when the Covid-19 epidemic broke out. However, things have changed positively since the tournament started again in July. In just over 10 rounds, Fiorentina had a very strong spurt to finish 10th place. with 49 points. Remember, Fiorentina was unbeaten in the last 8/10 Serie A rounds last season. In two friendly matches in the summer, they also crushed the bottom teams like Lucchese (5-0) and Reggiana (5-1).

In recent years, Torino has risen strongly and even entered the race to win fair tickets to Europe with the giants. It seemed that the story would continue in the last season, but Torino played quite badly and only finished 16th on the standings with 40 points obtained. A season where coach Moreno Longo is out of permission and Belotti is down, it is somewhat predictable results. Even in the last 5 rounds of Serie A, Torino did not have a victory. In the recent series of friendly matches, the visitors continued to disappoint in front of the lower teams. In which they drew Pro Patria (1-1) and lost to Pro Vercelli (1-2). Overall Torino is having a difficult time and their preparation for the new season is also full of questions.
