With La Viola and Di Francesco's men both producing plenty of goals at both ends of the pitch, Al Hain-Cole expects a free-scoring Coppa Italia clash

The stage is set for an entertaining clash when Fiorentina welcome Roma to the Stadio Artemio Franchi for Wednesday’s Coppa Italia quarter-final.

Both of these sides have started 2019 in free-scoring form, hitting the net 18 times between them in a combined total of six matches.

Latest odds

Having run out 2-0 winners in their last cup encounter with this opposition, La Viola are available at 8/5 (2.60) with SportPesa to take their place in the semi-finals by coming out on top.

However, Eusebio Di Francesco’s men come into this clash on the back of four wins and a draw in the last five matches, and are also priced at 8/5 (2.60) to silence the home fans with another victory.

Roma celeb Atalanta

The teams shared a 1-1 draw when they met here in November’s Serie A game, and there are odds of 12/5 (3.40) on offer for this one to also finish all square after 90 minutes.

Team news

With no injuries to contend with, Stefano Pioli could offer a debut to new signing Pietro Terracciano in goal as he rotates the line-up.

In contrast, the Giallorossi are missing first teamers Antonio Mirante, Juan Jesus, Diego Perotti, and Cengiz Under through injury.

While they may be scoring for fun recently, both of these teams have struggled to keep opposition at bay at the other end of the pitch.

Fiorentina have conceded three goals in both of their last two matches, while their opponents let slip a 3-0 lead to draw 3-3 at Atalanta at the weekend – having allowed Torino to come from two goals down before winning 3-2 in the previous game.

Predictions

All in all, odds of 10/11 (1.91) seem like solid value on both teams getting on target in Roma’s ninth game in 11 that produces over 2.5 goals, as well as a fourth home match in five.
