Stadio Artemio Franchi


The Giallorossi face another very stern test of their Champions’ League ambitions, as Fiorentina are slowly rediscovering their form.

Fabrizio Miccoli’s stunning strike earned the Viola an important point away to Brescia last week and Christian Riganò returns from a hand injury to bolster their attack force. Enzo Maresca and William Viali are also back following suspension and hope to grab a morale-boosting victory after picking up just one point in their last three games.

Sergio Buso’s job is on the line, so the pressure is on the Stadio Artemio Franchi outfit. It will be an intriguing tie for Hidetoshi Nakata, who never really warmed to the Giallorossi fans during his time there.

Roma are also far from relaxed at the moment, as their 2-2 draw at Chievo highlighted some disastrous defending. Philippe Mexes and Matteo Ferrari were particularly at fault for the two early goals, though Vincenzo Montella confirmed his Capocannoniere status with a spectacular brace to recover from 2-0 down.

Simone Perrotta remains sidelined with a thigh injury, but Olivier Dacourt should now be fit enough to return to the starting eleven after a substitute appearance in that game.


Fiorentina (probable): Lupatelli; Maggio, Ujfalusi, Dainelli, Chiellini; Ariatti, Maresca, Obodo; Nakata, Miccoli; Riganò

Roma (probable): Pelizzoli; Mexes, Dellas, Ferrari; Mancini, De Rossi, Aquilani, Cufre; Totti, Montella, Cassano

Cant wait to watch this game.

2-1 Roma

Some pretty bad keeping.
