Fiorentina team news

Fiorentina will be able to welcome back Sofyan Amrabat from his one-game suspension but lose Lucas Torreira to a ban after the tenacious Uruguay international racked up his tenth yellow card of the season in Monday's chastening defeat to Sampdoria.

The side's ephemeral playmaker Gaetano Castrovilli has been ruled out for between eight and ten months after undergoing reconstructive knee surgery in April.


Juventus team news

Federico Bernardeschi's booking on the cusp of half-time during Juve's 2-2 draw with Lazio has prematurely ended his 2021/22 campaign through suspension.

Danilo is a doubt with a muscular problem while Kaio Jorge has been absent since February with a ruptured patella.

While Federico Chiesa isn't expected to return until September, there had been whispers of an early recovery for Weston McKennie. However, the US international is yet to reappear after fracturing his metatarsal.


Fiorentina vs Juventus score prediction

Fiorentina have already lost to Juventus on three separate occasions this season. However, only one of those defeats came at the Artemio Franchi - and that was only secured via a 91st-minute own goal.

With the benefit of home comforts, Vincenzo Italiano has forged a formidable outfit. Title-chasing Inter are the only side in the entirety of Serie A with more home wins than Fiorentina's dozen.

While Juve have nothing left to play for, Fiorentina may add to that tally in the search for their highest league finish since 2016.

Prediction: Fiorentina 2-1 Juventus
