Juventus vs. Napoli is rightly dominating the headlines this week, with the match in Turin pitting champion against challenger in what is undoubtedly Serie A's most high profile match of the season. Yet while Saturday night's main event is receiving immeasurable column inches, the following evening sees Fiorentina take on Inter and begin a run of fixtures which could define how 2015/16 is remembered by supporters of La Viola.
The clash pits Paulo Sousa's men - who start the weekend in third place - against the team directly below them in the table, with victory at the Artemio Franchi likely to put them in pole position for the final Champions League berth.
Played on Valentine's Day, the next month will be crucial as Fiorentina then face Tottenham twice in a week, with a tough away trip against Atalanta sandwiched between them. Things get no easier the following weekend as the Viola host Napoli, before heading to the capital for another huge clash with AS Roma on March 13.
The fixture list will grow even more congested should they progress in the Europa League, with the Round of 16 scheduled to take place either side of that visit to the Stadio Olimpico.
