Fiorentina is anticipated to continue their impressive performance in Serie A when they play against relegation-threatened Spezia at Stadio Artemio Franchi on Saturday. Last week, Fiorentina secured a win against Inter Milan, whereas Spezia only managed a draw against Salernitana.
Under Vincenzo Italiano’s leadership, Fiorentina has remained undefeated in Serie A since mid-February, winning five consecutive games in their recent hot streak. Their most recent victory was against Inter last Saturday at San Siro, where they gave Italiano his first win over Simone Inzaghi since taking charge.
Although Juventus has been the center of attention with their unexpected challenge for Europe, Fiorentina is only eight points behind Atalanta, who currently holds the final European spot. Even though they are unlikely to secure the final continental berth, another victory this weekend could put added pressure on Atalanta.
Spezia, who are currently one spot above the relegation zone, will aim to end Fiorentina’s winning streak. They have not won a league game since defeating Inter on March 10 and must convert draws into wins to avoid being dragged into a relegation battle.
Despite Spezia’s unimpressive goal-scoring record, they have scored twice in two of their last five games, which is promising as the season approaches its end.

Fiorentina will be without Nikola Milenkovic, Riccardo Saponara, and Salvatore Sirigu, while Sofyan Amrabat is suspended. Spezia’s Joao Moutinho and Arkadiusz Reca are unlikely to feature, and Emmanuel Gyasi and Nikolaou are doubtful due to injuries.
