The competition between the teams could not be more direct. With the same amounts of points gained, the teams share third and fourth positions in the league, with nominally Roma being above due to the first leg away win (1-2) in the current season. The winner of this clash will break away from the opponent and establish themselves right behind the leaders Napoli (58 points) and Juventus (61 points).
Roma (home) → 13 games, 9 wins, 3 draws, 1 loss
Fiorentina (away) → 13 games, 6 wins, 3 draws, 4 losses
Roma are meeting Real Madrid on Tuesday for second leg UEFA Champions League match. The Italians lost the first game at home (0-2) and the upcoming match become somewhat a formality: the football world does not believe in Roma’s ability to win +2 goals against Zidane’s team in an away match.
Fiorentina got knocked out of Europa League by Tottenham. The Italian club could not withstand The Spurs recording an away loss 3-0, after a 1-1 draw at Stadio Artemio Franchi in Florence in the first leg.
The drama between Francesco Totti and Roma coming to its end: the 39-year old captain is very close to a new deal with the club.
