Stadio Olimpico, Rome will be hosting on Sunday, 8 December 2013, an Italian Serie A match between AS Roma and Fiorentina . The match referee will be D. Orsato.
That is why the hosts this time also expect three points against the “Violas”, especially since they urgently need a win to regain their confidence. In fact, we know that the popular “Wolves” have recorded ten wins in the first 10 rounds of Serie A, but then came the incomprehensible decline in their game that has finally resulted in four consecutive draws. Of course it is not so worrisome, because they are still the only undefeated team in the league, but on the other hand the current champion Juventus has taken advantage of their mistakes and took over their leading position, so they now have three points more of than the Romans.
We should also mention that the Romans are still the team with the best defence in the league, since they received only four goals in 14 league matches, but they are also aware that they have to play a little risky if they want to get three points against the extremely unpleasant Fiorentina. That is why their coach Garcia has announced the return of their midfielder Pjanic and striker Ljajic in the first 11, while Bradley and Marquinho will move to the bench. On the other hand, their captain Totti and defender Balzaretti are still out of action due to their injuries.
As for Fiorentina, they are awaiting this Sunday’s duel with Roma in a much better mood, given that they recorded three victories in the last four rounds of Serie A, which again led to their breakthrough in the fifth place. Moreover, they continued with their great performances in the European league, where they have, after five rounds and 13 points, already secured placement in the knockout phase, so that they can now fully dedicate their attention to the domestic championship.
And since they have a very difficult duel with the second-ranked Roma, which admittedly is in a decline of form, it is very important that they triumphed against Verona at home last weekend, because this has helped them to very quickly regain their confidence after that defeat by Udinese away. Otherwise, it should be noted that their striker Rossi is simply brilliant in the jersey of Fiorentina, and he is currently the top scorer in Serie A with 12 goals scored, so it is generally not felt that they are performing without their biggest reinforcement this year, the German striker Gomez. Besides the injured Gomez, defender Hegazy and midfielders Pasqual and Vecino will also have to miss this match for the same reason.

Possible line-ups:
AC Fiorentina: Neto – Tomovic, Rodriguez, Savic, Vargas – Aquilani, Ambrosini, Valero – Cuadrado, Joaquin – Rossi.
AS Roma: De Sanctis – Maicon, Benatia, Castan, Dodo – Pjanic, De Rossi, Strootman – Florenzi, Ljaji, Gervinho.
