Both Fiorentina and Juventus are desperate to win the title in the 2021-22 season. Therefore, the battle in the semi-final first leg of the Italian Cup today is like a 6-point match. Despite being rated higher, it is difficult for Juventus to win against Fiorentina who is playing quite well in recent times.
Fiorentina was an unpleasant opponent. The last 5 outings, the Florence team received only 1 defeat, but won 3 matches. It must be emphasized that Vincenzo Italiano’s teachers and students have a pretty good away record. La Viola was unbeaten in 7/8 previous receptions and won 6. Notably, a 1-0 victory at home against the big man Atalanta.
Fiorentina is very good at playing the bottom team. Because then, they will promote their forte defense and counter-attack. Remember, the defense of the home team Artemio Franchi is very discreetly and firmly organized. Up to now, teachers and coaches Vincenzo Italiano have only had 1 match to pick up the ball after the last 3 home matches in all competitions. The previous 2 encounters with Juventus in their mecca, La Viola were unbeaten and this time is probably no exception.
Contrary to the home team, Juventus is playing quite well in the past period. In the last 4 matches on all fronts, although the Turin team were unbeaten, they only won 1 victory. What’s more, that only win was against an underdog team like Empoli. That disappointing achievement of the Juventus Stadium team had a great influence on the defense. In the last 5 matches, their goal was shaken at least once in each match.
Juventus’ away ability has also not improved. In the previous 4/5 trips away from home, coach Massimiliano Allegri’s teachers and students did not win, notably the draw against Villarreal with a score of 1-1 even though they were leading in the first half. The past was not on the side of Mrs. Dam Gia. In the last 4 matches against Fiorentina, they only won 1 match, but received 2 defeats. The Juventus Stadium home team will hardly get a positive result in this match.
