La Viola of Florence have been the model of stability in Serie A betting for well over a decade.
That said, they do suffer from a very slow, very incremental downward trend. For instance, in the 2012/13 to 2015/16 period, they generally occupied 4th or 5th spots on the table. 2018/19 was a complete disaster with 16th – a disappointment their fans are still coming to grips with. That said, they managed a sharp upturn to 10th place in 2019/20.
This puts them on the precarious edge between a top- and bottom-half finish. Top 10 Finish Serie A bets are notoriously difficult to find, but you can expect odds of 2.40. As far as the more common outright markets go, you’re not very likely to find any good offers. A sudden return to the Champions League is highly unlikely since Fiorentina haven’t managed to get there since 2016.
Fiorentina Key Players
With a solid squad of promising young internationals, coach Giuseppe Iachini seems to be aiming for flexibility rather than a distinct playstyle. Still, their typical 3-5-2 uses a wide attack pattern with a focus on the wings. Federico Chiesa was the key man last season, though he’ll spend 2020/21 on loan to Juventus.
The overall lineup went through some sweeping changes over the summer. The defence remains largely the same, highlighted by the importance of defenders Nikola Milenkovic and Germán Pezzella. However, with the wingers unavailable, Iachini opted to go for a stronger presence in the centre with fresh midfielders and forwards. For instance, Christian Kouamé of Genoa was signed, while Sofyan Amrabat and Patrick Cutrone joined the roster on loan.
Fiorentina's biggest rival is Bologna, with which they share Derby dell'Appennino, or the Apennines Derby. The two cities are separated by the Apennines and hence the name of the derby. They have shared this rivalry from the 1920s, but with the start of the "Ultras" subculture in the 1970s, the clashes became more violent. In 1988, Fiorentina's supporters attacked the train carrying Bologna's supporters, who then paraded to the stadium in Florence causing major damage to the city along the way. Apart from Bologna, Fiorentina regard Juventus as their fierce rival. Empoli are Fiorentina's local rival, with which they share Derby Arno. In the Tuscany region, Fiorentina's biggest rivals are Pisa, while the club which they shared the field the most in Serie A is Livorno, dubbed as Derby Medici.
Fiorentina were formed in 1926, and they quickly made their way to Serie A, in 1931. The club won their first trophy, Coppa Italia, in 1939. Although they aren't among the most successful Italian clubs, they are the first Italian club to win a European competition. They managed to do that in 1961, when they won European Cup Winners Cup. Fiorentina won six Coppa Italia trophies, most recent in 2001 (they lost in the finals in 2014). The golden age of the club was from 1955, when they won their first Italian league title, until 1961, when they won Coppa Italia for the first time. During this period, Fiorentina won one Italian league title, and finished the second in the league four times, they had three finals and one trophy in Coppa Italia and they won European Cup Winners Cup.
