Fiorentina will look to extend their unbeaten run to five matches when they play host to Cagliari at Stadio Artemio Franchi on Monday evening.

I Viola have made a superb start to the new campaign, claiming 11 points from their first six matches. Another win on Monday could push them into the top four if results go their way, while Cagliari have not had much to smile about.

Cagliari are winless in six, only picking up two points, and they have a poor record against Monday’s opponents on their travels.

Team news

Fiorentina right-back Dodo remains a long-term injury absence as he continues to recover from an ACL injury, and he is unlikely to return before the end of the year.

Vincenzo Italiano is also without Yerry Mina, Cristiano Biraghi, Niccolo Pierozzi and Gaetano Castrovilli, but they should all be able to return around the upcoming international break.

Former Leicester City coach Claudio Ranieri will hope to guide Cagliari to their first win of the season, but he will have to do so without Jakub Jankto, Gaston Pereiro, Gianluca Lapadula and Marko Rog.

Fiorentina to win to nil @ 13/10

Since losing 4-0 to Inter Milan before the international break, Fiorentina have responded brilliantly under the stewardship of Italiano.

Back-to-back wins over Atalanta and Udinese restored some confidence, while they were then held to a 1-1 draw by Frosinone on Thursday.

Thankfully for Italiano, Fiorentina have an exemplary record at home in Serie A in recent months. They have not lost any of their previous 10 in front of their own supporters, with their last defeat coming in February to Bologna.

Half-time/Full-time – Fiorentina/Fiorentina @ 6/5

Cagliari’s return to Serie A has been miserable since their promotion last season, and they have only picked up points against Torino and Udinese.

Four defeats in five will mean confidence is low ahead of their trip to Florence, and they also know it is usually not a happy hunting ground for them.

Cagliari have lost their last two games against Fiorentina away from home, while they are winless at Stadio Artemio Franchi in four visits. Their last win there came in 2018, and they should struggle to get out of the blocks.

Fiorentina’s squad will be full of confidence thanks to their upturn in results, and with Cagliair struggling in front of goal, they should fall behind in the first half.

Ranieri may need some luck on the injury front for his team’s fortunes to improve, but Monday’s game will come too soon for that.
