Fiorentina - Roma Betting Preview: Red-hot Giallorossi to maintain their dominance over La Viola

Rudi Garcia's men have been playing like champions recently, and Al Hain-Cole expects them to record yet another win over a home team that have struggled in big games
Roma will be hoping to maintain their grip of Juventus’ coattails in the Serie A title race when they travel to the Artemio Franchi to take on Fiorentina on Saturday.

Rudi Garcia’s men have kept the runaway leaders on their toes by winning seven consecutive league games to remain eight points off top spot and are 13/10 (2.30) favourites with Paddy Power to maintain the pressure with another victory here.

The hosts are chasing a similarly unavailing target as they attempt to close the nine-point gap currently separating themselves from Champions League incumbents Napoli and are on offer at 2/1 (3.00) to keep that dream alive with a big win in this one.

I Giallorossi have drawn just two of their 33 league games so far this season, but there are odds of 9/4 (3.25) available on them picking up a single point this time out.

It is a mark of Juventus’ incredible quality that Garcia’s side are currently lagging well behind in second despite losing just twice in the league all campaign, with the leaders already boasting enough points to have won the Scudetto in each of the last six seasons despite five games still remaining.

Nevertheless, the capital side must be admired for their consistency in the face of such potentially disillusioning competition and on current form look like a good bet to extend their dominant record against La Viola.

Having won 24 and lost just six of the last 40 meetings with Vincenzo Montella’s men, including nine victories and just three defeats in the previous 14, Roma are well worth backing at 13/10 (2.30) to extend their winning streak on Saturday.

That bet looks particularly safe when you consider Fiorentina’s underwhelming recent home record in big games, which has seen them lose to Inter Milan, Lazio, Juventus and AC Milan in front of their own fans since mid-February.
