Fiorentina welcome Atalanta to the Stadio Artemio Franchi for the first leg of their Coppa Italia semi-finals tie.
Unbeaten in their last nine games across all competitions (W4, D5), the hosts come into this meeting off the back of a thrilling 3-3 home draw with Inter Milan. It was Fiorentina’s third stalemate in their last four competitive home clashes (W1, D3) and was also the eighth time in their previous nine home outings they’ve failed to preserve a clean slate. Although the Viola struggled to find the back of the net in three of their last ten competitive clashes, Stefano Pioli’s men have bagged 3+ match goals five times in the previous seven games, including seven they’ve netted against AS Roma in Coppa Italia’s last round.
Meanwhile, the visitors arrive at the Stadio Artemio Franchi trying to bring a disastrous 18-game winless run in Florence (D7, L11). However, the Goddess’ recent drop-off in form has seen them lose two successive games, allowing five goals while scoring just one in the process. A 2-0 loss to Torino has ended Atalanta’s four-game road winning run across all competitions during which they’ve scored 14 goals while keeping three clean sheets. Gian Piero Gasperini tends to go all out regardless of the quality of the opponents, which has resulted in seven of Atalanta’s last ten races producing over 2.5 goals, with five of them ending with four or more goals.
