Fiorentina vs Cremonese: prediction for the Serie A match
The Violets finished seventh in Serie A last season with a total of 62 points from 19 wins and five draws. This result allowed Fiorentina to get into the Conference League qualification. Three out of six pre-season friendlies ended in Fiorentina's victories. The club signed Dodo, Rolando Mandragora, Luka Jovic and Pierluigi Golliniin the summer.
Szymon Zurkowski will miss the upcoming game due to disqualification. Gaetano Castrovilli and Lorenzo Venuti are out injured.
Cremonese collected 69 points from 20 wins and nine draws and secured second position in Serie B last season, which allowed them to qualify directly to Serie. The Tigers started the new season with a victory in the first-round match in Coppa Italia, where they beat Ternana (3:2).
The team has several new players: Luka Lochoshvili, Giacomo Quagliata, Emanuel Aiwu, Charles Pickel and Cyriel Dessers.
This bet won in 5 of the last 6 games of Fiorentina.
In the last 6 home games of Fiorentina, only one team scored goals.
Fiorentina won their last 2 home games with this score.
Fiorentina are a better team than Cremonese, but the season is just starting, and the Violets, as well as their visitors, are yet to pick form. Cremonese looked decent in their first official game of the season and managed to secure passage to the next round of Coppa Italia. We expect them to put up a fight, but probably there won't be too many goals in this upcoming fixture.
Our prediction - total under 3 goals
In any case, the hosts will strive to start the season with a victory, and Cremonese will try to withhold the attacks of the VIolets, but sooner or later, they will concede. We predict a two-goal win for the Violets.
Second bet - Fiorentina to win with a (-1.5) handicap
