Fiorentina hosts Atalanta in a match from the 1/8-finals of the Coppa Italia
Fiorentina hosts Atalanta at the Stadio Artemio Franchi in a match from the 1/8-finals of the Coppa Italia. In these soccer matches tomorrow we will discuss this game with you, let’s start!
Fiorentina reached this phase of the competition after a 2-0 win over Citadella in the previous round, when the team was still managed by the now sacked Vincenzo Montella. It was Marco Benassi who shined with two goals for La Viola, securing the team a progress in the tournament.
Now some things are different for Fiorentina, because Enzo Montella is no more leading the team. The former Italian international was replaced by Giuseppe Iachini, who now has the task to improve Fiorentina’s results. During the weekend Iachini celebrated his first win with the club, when La Viola hosted SPAL in a game from the 19th round of the Serie A. The winning goal in the match was scored in the 82th minute when German Pezzella found the net after an assist from Eric Pulgar.
The win against SPAL was well needed for Iachini and Fiorentina. The team’s confidence was shaken by the mediocre results under the management of Montella, so the club really needed a fresh start.
Atalanta won’t be an easy opponent, though. Last season the club from Bergamo reached the final of the Coppa Italia, but suffered a defeat from the hands of Lazio. Maybe now La Dea will try again to reach the final.
Few days ago Atalanta reminded everyone about the team’s strenght. Gian Piero Gasperini’s boys visited the leader Inter Milan in a game from the Serie A and won a point after a 1-1 draw. It’s not a lie that right now Atalanta are among the best teams in the Calcio.
That’s our soccer matches tomorrow prediction for the Coppa Italia clash between Fiorentina and Atalanta on Wednesday. We think the visitors are the better team here, but Fiorentina are the ones with the home advantage.
