Fiorentina vs Monza Betting Pick #1: Fiorentina to win
Fiorentina have not lost in their last seven games now. At home, despite a less than 50% win record, their unbeaten record remains at just over 70%, considering five wins and draws from seven fixtures played at this venue. Monza might be very close lớn Fiorentina in terms of ability and performances this season, but La Viola surely have an advantage playing in front of their fans and their numbers justify their strength whenever amidst heavy home support.

Fiorentina will need their defence and midfield to step up for this tie, as La Viola runs a bit thin in their frontline. The hosts are missing their two forwards, Nicolas Gonzalez and Riccardo Sottil ahead of this game. While Gonzalez has been nursing a hamstring injury, Sottil is down with back problems that he faced back in October and his recovery is still incomplete. Both players are wide forwards who can play on either wing, and have contributed a combined three goal contributions this year.
