Vincenzo Montella's men lost their unbeaten record in unfortunate circumstances last time out, but Al Hain-Cole expects them to ease to victory against their travel-sick guestsFiorentina will be hoping to bounce back from their first defeat of the season when they welcome Parma to the Stadio Artemio Franchi on Monday.
The Viola surrendered a one-goal lead to lose 2-1 against Inter on Thursday but are 4/7 (1.57) favourites with bet365 to get back to winning ways this evening.
Meanwhile, Roberto Donadoni’s men secured their first victory of the season in dramatic 4-3 style against Atalanta in mid-week and are available at 5/1 (6.00) to follow that up with another three points in this one.
Four of the last six encounters between these sides have resulted in draws, and you can get odds of 14/5 (3.80) on them cancelling each other out tonight.
Vincenzo Montella claimed he was angry after seeing his side lose at the San Siro thanks to two goals scored via “lucky deflections”, and expects the players to take their frustration out on the visitors in this match.
That does not bode well for i Crociati, who will go into this fixture with some trepidation after losing eight of their last nine visits to this stadium, failing to score in any of the last three.
Montella’s men have been tipped to challenge at the very top this season, partly due to the dominant home form that has seen them lose just two of their last 25 Serie A games in front of their own fans, and should comfortably see off a team that have won a measly 18 of their last 118 league games on the road.
Having seen their side win seven of their last 10 league games on home turf, the fans will be confident of another victory tonight and are unlikely to have to wait long before their team take control of the match.
Considering Fiorentina have also led at the break in six of those seven wins, odds of 7/5 (2.40) look particularly enticing on them winning at both half-time and full-time against Parma, who have gone in behind at the interval in six of their most recent eight away league defeats.
