Fiorentina vs Verona: Football Whispers' Predictions
Neither of these sides have made the best start to the season but we're expecting a tight and tense 90-minutes when Fiorentina host Verona in Serie A this weekend. Both meetings between these two clubs last season ended in draws and just 1pt separates the pair heading into this weekend's clash. That's the opinion of today soccer tips
Four of the last five league meetings between Fiorentina and Verona have ended in stalemates and we're predicting another draw between the two clubs on Sunday. Three of Fiorentina's last six outings in all competitions have ended in draws and the same can be said of two of Verona's last five outings in Serie A, so you can see why we're leaning towards a draw this weekend.
Under 2.5 Goals
Expert for asian handicap tips: There is a good chance that we won't see many goals in this game as five of the last six head-to-heads between these two clubs have ended with under 2.5 goals being scored. Fewer than three goals have also been produced in four of Fiorentina's last six outings as well as in four of Verona's last five matches. Both teams lost their top scorers from last season and don't possess the same goal threat anymore.

Verona will move above Fiorentina if they win
Fiorentina were away at Bologna in their last Serie A match where following a goalless first-half, Martinez fired the visitors in front in the 54th-minute. However, Bologna responded really well to going behind, scoring two goals in the space of 3-minutes to go 2-1 in front and eventually win the game. Deep into stoppage-time, Fiorentina had insult added to injury when defender Igor was shown a second yellow card and will now miss the game against Verona.
Not many people gave Verona any hope of coming away from the Stadio Olimpico with any points as they took on Lazio last weekend. Despite the first half ending goalless, the doubters were right as Immobile put Lazio 1-0 up and then in stoppage-time, Albero scored to confirm all 3pts went to the home side.
