Fiorentina exceeded expectations last season by making it all the way to the final of the Europa Conference League and earning a spot in the same tournament this year. Vincenzo Italiano has been assembling an intriguing roster this summer, and last week’s match against Genoa was a triumph for the team.
Although the Grifone supporters put on quite a show in honor of their team’s return to Serie A, Fiorentina came out on top with a 4-1 victory on the first day of the 2023-24 season.
Although it’s still early in the season, Fiorentina appears to be in contention once again. Newly acquired forward M’Bala Nzola could contribute to another victory here. He had a promising showing last week and should provide a nice boost to the Viola offense.
Sofyan Amrabat may be on his way out of Fiorentina, despite being included in their European squad. He is not likely to start again. M’Bala Nzola should start in goal over Jonathan Ikoné, who is also questionable due to injury.
Lecce’s offensive play will ensure that they remain visually appealing. As they frequently face much wealthier Serie A teams, they do not always have success in matches. Last week, they lost to Lazio, but opened the season with a win thanks to two late goals.
The Salentini may be able to score again this week at the Stadio Artemio Franchi thanks to their upbeat approach. Even if they don’t have enough to win this one, they’ll still play their best nonetheless.
In all likelihood, Lecce will be in a relegation battle again this season. However, a run of solid results at this juncture of the season could go a long way toward guaranteeing safety in the top division.
After last week’s dominant win over Lazio, Eusebio Di Francesco likely won’t make any significant changes to his Lecce starting XI. But after his son Federico scored the game-winning goal against the Biancocelesti, he may start him against Fiorentina.
