Betting tip Serie A: AS Roma - AC Florenz
Tuesday, 07.02.2017 um 20:45 Uhr
Game day closing on Tuesday
Unusually late the 23rd round of Italian Serie A comes to an end. Upcoming Tuesday the teams of AS Rome and AC Florence play against each other. The hosts probably need to be favored in this duel, after all they are better ranked. Kick-off is February 7 at 8.45 PM.
- still without a point loss at home
- opponent's best goal getter might not play
- very strong offensively
- won first season duel
- strong in standard situations
Current form AS Rome
AS Rome also is behind everlasting rival Juventus this season. Currently Turin's advantage are four point with one game less. That's why a win on Tuesday would be important for Luciano Spaletti's team. They need to be alert though, because Florence already tripped up Juventus a couple of weeks ago. Rome has been performing well in the past weeks, but they also slipped a few times. Last Sunday for example the Champions League starter surprisingly lost against currently ranked 16th Sampdoria Genua 2:3. The home court advantage should make this loss forgotten however. The "Romans" are the only team other then Juventus Turin, which hasn't lost a single home game this season in the Serie A and they didn't draw at home either. Before the loss to Genua Rome celebrated wins against Cagliari (1:0), Udinese (1:0), FC Genua (1:0) and Chievo Verona (3:1). Especially on offense hardly anybody can hold a candle to the Spaletti-Eleven currently. The second ranked team scored an unbelievable 44 goals in 22 games, which is a strong average of 2 games per game. Dzeko & Co. indeed scored two more goals in 13 of 22 games. Additionally Mohammed Sallah could join the active roster again. He has been at the Africa Cup for a while lately. On the other hand Alessandro Florenzi will miss the game for sure. He still is not fit after his ACL tear.
Current form AC Florence
AC Florence can't be satisfied with their season so far. Looking at the current rankings, Florence wouldn't be able to compete internationally next season. The "Viola" are currently ranked ninth and had to be satisfied with a spectacular, but nevertheless disappointing 3:3 draw against FC Genua on the last game day. The supplement game against Pescara on February 1 (hasn't been played at time of this forecast) might be good for rehabilitation. Before the game against Genua, Florence's world seemed to be in order. After all they were able to beat leader Juventus Turin two weeks before and they also won against Chievo Verona. The duel against the "Romand" won't be an easy one though, just the opposite should be the case. Florence suffered all five of their losses in away games. What's positive is, that they were able to win the first game against the Spaletti-Eleven 1:0. Unlike the team from the capital, Florence has to battle personnel worries. Captain Gonzalo will be out for sure and Ricardo Saponara is also injured. Even the "Viola's" best scorer might not be able to play on Tuesday. Nikola Kalinic has problems with his knee, which is putting a big question mark behind him.
Both teams are under pressure in this duel. Rome shouldn't lose more touch with the top of the rankings and Florence is battling for a Europe Cup ranking. We believe that the home strength of the AS Rome will be the deciding factor. Our recommendation therefore: Tip 1.
