AS Roma vs. Fiorentina – Serie A, November 1, 2020
The 2020-21 Serie A season continues Sunday, November 1, with the marquee matchup at Stadio Olimpico in Rome, so I bring you the best AS Roma vs. Fiorentina betting pick.
These two old foes meet each other for the first time this term, and AS Roma will search for their third straight victory over Fiorentina.
AS Roma vs. Fiorentina Odds
According to Bovada Sportsbook, the Yellow and Reds are firm home favorites in what should be a high-scoring affair. Both AS Roma and Fiorentina have been efficient lately, but they’ve also yielded a lot of goals.
We saw a whopping 11 goals in total in AS Roma’s two home games this season, as well as in Fiorentina’s two road contests.
AS Roma vs. Fiorentina Preview
AS Roma is sitting at the ninth spot of the Serie A standings with eight points and an 11:10 goal difference. The Yellow and Reds are undefeated in their previous four Serie A showings, tallying a couple of wins and draws in the process.
Two weeks ago, they dismantled Benevento 5-2 at home, while the previous round saw a 3-3 draw at AC Milan. Interestingly, the Yellow and Reds are coming off a goalless home draw against CSKA Sofia in the Europa League this past Thursday.
On the other side, Fiorentina is right behind AS Roma, laying at the 10th spot of the Serie A table with seven points and a 10:10 goal difference.
The Violets are unbeaten in two straight outings, earning a 2-2 draw at Spezia and beating Udinese 3-2 at home in the previous round. Fiorentina conceded in its last four contests, and those four games produced three or more goals in total.
When it comes to unavailable players for Sunday’s clash in Rome, the Violets will miss their captain and centre-back, German Pezzella, due to an ankle injury. AS Roma will be without a few role players including right-back Davide Santon (muscle) and midfielder Nicolo Zaniolo (knee).
AS Roma vs. Fiorentina Pick
Both Teams to Score YES & Over 2.5 Goals-120
You can notice, and I’ve already mentioned that both these foes have been scoring and conceding a lot recently. Also, both AS Roma and Fiorentina prefer an attacking approach, as they cannot brag with a lot of talent on the defensive end.
Therefore, I’m looking for a proper firecracker at Stadio Olimpico. The odds on both teams to find the net are not attractive, so I’ll take the combo bet and add Over 2.5 Goals in total.
Six of the last eight encounters between AS Roma and Fiorentina produced three or more goals in total, while the previous five saw both teams scoring at least once.
Last season, AS Roma beat Fiorentina on both occasions. The Yellow and Reds beat the Violets 2-1 in Rome and 4-1 in Florence.
Furthermore, AS Roma failed to keep its net intact in six straight Serie A outings at home, while Fiorentina netted in each but one of its previous eight Serie A showings on the road.
Finally, both sides showed a lot of scoring potential over the last two weeks. Considering the teams’ current form, their head-to-head duels, and betting trends, this should be the best wager available.
