AS Roma welcome Fiorentina to the Stadio Olimpico after a tough Champions League fixture against Barcelona on Wednesday.

Whilst their title challenge ended prematurely, the Romans cannot afford to rest players in Serie A. They currently hold a slender three-point lead over city rivals Lazio in the race for Champions League qualification.

A disappointing draw against Bologna last time out ended a run of three straight wins. Their usually potent attack underperformed in that match due to poor finishing. They scored just one goal from 2.46 expected goals.

Fiorentina have European ambitions of their own. They are currently just outside the Europa League spots in Serie A after winning their last five games. The Florence side possess one of Serie A’s better defences and their exciting young attack has looked threatening in recent weeks.

They were able to rest talisman Giovani Simeone against Udinese last time out, whilst Italian international Ferderico Chiesa is starting to fulfil his immense potential. The away side certainly have the quality to take advantage of any fatigue present in a Roma lineup which cannot be distracted by their big midweek match.

AS Roma vs. Fiorentina: Where is the value?

Odds of 1.900* on over 2.5 goals to be scored in the match could offer value considering the undeniable quality of Roma’s attack combined with Fiorentina’s improving young forwards. Cengiz Ünder’s return, potentially from the bench, could add to Roma’s attacking potency.

Fiorentina have only failed to score once in their last ten league games and that was against the defensive powerhouse that is Juventus (who are yet to concede a Seria A goal in 2018) . As a result, odds of 1.740* on over 0.75 Fiorentina goals in the match look to be generous. Expect Chiesa to be a constant threat to a potentially weary Roma backline.
