Fiorentina is ranked at 17th place with only nine points and comes winless in the last five matches with two draws and three losses. This has been a very poor season for them, winning just two out of 11 matches in total and sit three points above the relegation zone. Under Prandelli, they are yet to win, but their game has changed and I expect results to come soon.
In the last six matches, they have scored only one goal but with players like Ribery, Cutrone, and Castrovilli the quality is present, they just need to find the shape with their new coach. Considering that their rivals fancy playing offensive football there should be plenty of chances to counterattack.
Sassuolo, on the other hand, is ranked at 5th place with 22 points and comes after two wins two draws and a loss over the last five matches. Currently, they sit in the Europa League zone and it seems like this could be a good season for them. The bad news will be the absence of Caputo who still hasn't recovered but they have Berardi, Djuricic, and Boga who have been on fire this season.
They have scored 21 goals in total, averaging almost two goals per game and in the last five matches they have scored only three goals but four of their opponents were of the top half of the table so the challenge was tough.
In conclusion, I think both teams can score at least a goal here. Fiorentina is in desperate need of a turn of events and now at home, I expect the motivation to be high. Prandelli is a known face in Florence and he knows how to change the offensive side. Sassuolo was rolling well before the injury of Caputo but still, I fancy them to score at least a goal here despite how this match might end. They have scored in each of the last five h2h games against Fiorentina.
