Fiorentina host their hated rivals Juventus in Serie A at the Artemio Franchi on Saturday afternoon.

La Viola began the campaign with a dramatic victory against Cremonese secured in the 95th minute. However, Vincenzo Italiano's team haven't scored in any of their three subsequent matches and were beaten by Udinese in midweek.

Juventus overcame Italiano's former employers, Spezia, on Wednesday night, extending their unbeaten start to the campaign to four matches.

Here's everything you need to know about the upcoming meeting between two of Serie A's seven sisters.

Fiorentina team news

Gaetano Castrovilli is continuing his long-running recovery from a serious knee injury while Szymon Zurkowski is yet to reappear after assisting Rolando Mandragora's late winner on the opening day.

Nicolas Gonzalez and Alfred Duncan are both doubts after missing the midweek trip to Udine.

For that aforementioned limp defeat, Italiano made nine changes from the side that held Napoli to a 0-0 draw last weekend. Given the nature of that display, Italiano could shuffle his pack once again.

Juventus team news

Taking a thoroughly glass-half-full view on Wojciech Szczesny's sprained ankle, Juve's goalkeeper didn't fracture the joint during the club's midweek win. However, he has rejoined an injury list that was beginning to reduce following the return to fitness of Angel Di Maria.

Paul Pogba is awaiting his second debut for the club but Leandro Paredes may feature after finalising his loan deal from Paris Saint-Germain. The young forwards Marley Ake (ankle) and Kaio Jorge (tendon) remain unavailable while Felix Correia is recovering from a shoulder problem.

Federico Chiesa is some way off regaining full fitness but club captain Leonardo Bonucci is inching towards a return.

Juventus predicted lineup vs Fiorentina

Juventus Starting 11: Perrin; Danilo, Gatti, Bremer, Sandro; Miretti, Locatelli, Rabiot; Di Maria, Vlahovic, Cuadrado.
Bench: Pinsoglio, McKennie, De Sciglio, Milik, Paredes, Kostic, Kean, Zakaria, Rugani.


Fiorentina vs Juventus score prediction

Juve's last Serie A defeat was at the hands of their upcoming hosts. With Champions League qualification already secured, the Bianconeri barely bothered getting off the team bus last May, attempting just one shot all game (which was blocked) as Fiorentina cantered to a 2-0 win.

The Old Lady have their sights set higher than the top four this term and have actually demonstrated some tentative signs of improvement in the last two matches. However, Fiorentina's goal drought belies the threat they can pose and La Viola may prove to be another sticky stop on Juve's amble back to the top.

Prediction: Fiorentina 1-1 Juventus
