Fiorentina will be looking to bounce back with a win
Salernitana are currently 18th in the league, six points away from safety. Divide Nicola’s side snapped their three-game losing streak and have won their last two matches on the trot. They will hope to take that momentum into the game against Fiorentina on Sunday.
Fiorentina, on the other hand, are currently 6th in the league, with a win taking them to 5th. Vincenzo Italiano’s side’s six-game unbeaten run came to an end at the hands of Juventus in the Coppa Italia in midweek. They will look to bounce back with a win against Salernitana on Sunday.
Both sides will want to win the game on Sunday and that should make for an interesting contest.
