Fiorentina-Cagliari preview

So tomorrow Fiorentina welcomes Cagliari at Artemio Franchi.Our last two encounters ended up,surprisingly,in defeats for us,but both of them were played away,and i think that tomorrow will be a different story.

Looking at the table,we find Cagliari commfortably sitting in 7th place,with 45 points,7points behind us.Their last two campaigns show simmilarities,starting the season poorly,then climbing up,unexpectedly,in the upper half of the table.

Heading into the game the game,Fiorentina will have to do without the services of Mutu,Santana,Jorgensen and Kroldrup,wich is hardly news for us.On a positive note,Melo is back from flu.The lack of players for the trequartista position means San Cesare will change our formation from 4-3-1-2 to a 4-4-2.It worked against Atalanta.

Unlike us,Cagliari has the full squad available.



April 5 v Atalanta (A) WON 2-1

March 22 v Siena (H) WON 1-0

March 15 v Inter (A) LOST 0-2

March 8 v Palermo (H) LOST 0-2

March 1 v Reggina (A) DREW 1-1


April 5 v Catania (H) WON 1-0

March 22 v Bologna (A) WON 1-0

March 14 v Genoa (H) LOST 0-1

March 8 v Chievo (A) DREW 1-1

March 1 v Torino (H) DREW 0-0

Probable lineups:
Fiorentina(4-4-2):Frey; Comotto, Dainelli, Gamberini, Pasqual; Kuzmanovic, Felipe Melo, Montolivo, Semioli; Jovetic, Gilardino.

Cagliari(4-3-1-2): Marchetti; Pisano, Lopez, Canini, Agostini; Fini, Conti, Biondini; Cossu; Matri, Acquafresca.


Motivation will be the most decissive element tomorrow.Cagliari completed their objective of remaining in Serie A for the next season,while we are still fighting for the 4th place.i predict a commfortable 2-0 or 3-1 win for Fiorentina,with Gilardino and Kuzmanovic on the scoresheet.FORZA VIOLA!

P.S.:Those rumours about Adrian Mutu leaving Gamberini's girlfriend pregnant really shocked me.I mean is that something like a forbidden fruit thing?
