Roma will be hoping to stay within touching distance of Serie A leaders Juventus when they welcome Fiorentina to the Stadio Olimpico on Tuesday.

Seven points adrift of top spot in third place, the Giallorossi are available at 4/7 (1.57) with bet365 to maintain the pressure by coming out on top here.

After recording a first league victory over this opposition in nine attempts back in September, Paulo Sousa’s men are 5/1 (6.00) outsiders to make it two in a row in this one.

Both teams have drawn more games against each other than any other Serie A opponent, and you can get odds of 14/5 (3.80) on them adding to that record with a 59th draw this time out.

While a more open first half of the Italian season suggested this title race could be one of the most competitive in years, Juventus’ 1-0 victory over Inter on Sunday night now has the league table shaping up in ominously familiar fashion.

However, as the only other team in Europe’s top five leagues to match the Bianconeri’s 100 per cent home record so far this season, Luciano Spalletti’s side will not be letting them ease off just yet.

Having lost four of their last seven matches on the road in all competitions, La Viola seem unlikely to threaten the hosts’ winning streak that extends to 13 league fixtures in front of their own fans.

Nevertheless, with 22 goals to their name in 11 away league games so far this campaign, the guests will at least fancy their chances of punishing a defence that conceded three times against Sampdoria last time out.

With this in mind, odds of 2/1 (3.00) offer excellent value on Roma coming out on top in a match featuring goals at both ends for the sixth time in seven home games against Fiorentina.
