Serie A | ACF Fiorentina Vs AC Monza; Tuesday, 14 May at 02:45 GMT +8

Fiorentina, a team that finished 8th in Serie A last year, is currently 9th with 50 points. They have also reached the Europa Conference League and Coppa Italia Finals. Despite being one game fewer played than Napoli, they have been successful in Europe, reaching the ECL Finals for the second year in a row.

Monza, a stable team in Serie A, finished 11th last season and is on track for a similar finish this season. They currently sit in 11th place with 45 points, two points behind Torino. They could secure Europe if Atalanta wins the Europa League and Fiorentina wins the ECL.

Fiorentina has been inconsistent in recent matches, with most poor performances coming away from home. Viola has won back-to-back games at Stadio Artemio Franchi and is undefeated in the last five. Monza is in terrible form, winning only three points in the last six games. Their five wins in 17 road games were mostly against bottom-of-league teams. Fiorentina should secure a comfortable home win at Stadio Artemio Franchi, considering their good home record and Monza’s poor form.

Fiorentina’s coach Vincenzo Italiano is the only fitness concern for the team, with a fully healthy squad. Riccardo Sottil is not expected to play. La Viola may start with a 4-2-3-1 formation, starting Oliver Christensen, Michael Kayode, Nikola Milenkovic, and others.

Monza manager Raffaelle Palladino is likely to use a 4-2-3-1 system with a lineup of players, including José Machín and Patrick Ciurria, due to injury and knee problems, to prepare for the upcoming match.
