      Fiorentina vs Carpi Predictions

      Fiorentina suffered a tough 3-1 away loss to Juventus at the weekend, a result that damages their standing in the Serie A table. Still, this is a team that is competitive in several competitions, they learned that they’ll take on English side Tottenham in Europa League action and they reached the semi-final stage of the Coppa Italia last season.

      Fiorentina is still a positive and attacking-minded side that is capable of scoring goals in bunches. They’ll be pleased to have a home draw, considering the busyness of their schedule and a game against Carpi obviously represents an opportunity.

      For Carpi, they take a break from the relegation battle in Serie A and look to cause a Coppa Italia upset to reach the quarter-final stage of this competition. A 3-0 defeat to Empoli in the league hardly represents perfect preparation and this is a difficult stretch for a side that follows this game with match-ups against Juventus and Lazio.

      Three Reasons for Betting Tips

      1. Fiorentina’s playing style

      They’re going to open this game up, push players forward, attacking in numbers and we’ll bet on them break down Carpi scoring a few goals along the way. They should have just too much for their fellow Serie A opponents.

      2. Defensive errors

      Both sides are prone to defensive lapses, including Fiorentina, who will expose themselves on the counter attack, are not the best defender of set pieces and prioritise playing attacking football first, second and third.

      3. Playing to win

      This isn’t a game where there’s a point for drawing, it’s a game where the win is all that matters and we think that’ll bring the best out of a Carpi side that is capable of producing an upset. However, our correct score prediction still thinks ultimately the Goals Over 2.5 line will be driven by Fiorentina scoring plenty of goals.
