Fiorentina vs Siena by JerryDrake

On Thursday Fiorentina will host Siena in a Tuscany derby. The winner will have access to the Italian Cup semifinal against Milan or Udinese. After this match Fiorentina will face Genoa in Serie A on Sunday while Siena will play in Crotone.


Fiorentina have a good tradition in this derby as they never lost in their last 7 meetings but their main target will be the qualification to next round as it will be difficult to win with a high winning margin. Siena have already eliminated Bologna and Catania and they had a lot of time to prepare this match.


Coach Vincenzo Montella should play with a large number of regulars but he will not have available strikers Rossi, Gomez and Matri as well as defender Tomovic (injured) and midfield player Ambrosini (suspended) while Cuadrado could start from the bench. Still, he has a lot of quality players available like Aquilani, Borja Valero, Ilicic, Joaquin and Rodriguez and Savic in the defense. Matos or Rebic should be in the starting eleven.


Siena never lost in their last 9 away games played in Serie B and the last 2 in Coppa Italia. Strikers Rosina, Giannetti and Paolucci are all available and they all made well until now in Serie B. In all interviews Siena players expressed their intention to achieve the best possible result in Florence.


No doubt that Fiorentina will play to win and will probably qualify to next round. But I think that it will be a very close game. The Viola could win 2-1 or 3-2. Around 1000 Siena fans will travel to Florence and it will be a very interesting game also for live betting in my opinion.

I like your angle (and your pick) since it's a derby, but I'd rather play the over in that game.

Buona fortuna!

Thank you Angelo. Are you Roma fan?
01/22/2014 - 12:03
Yes. I've been a Roma fan since I was a kid. BTW, great call yesterday in the Coppa Italia match. I was really surprised that Benatia didnt get a red card in the first half...usually the refs give these calls to La Vecchia Signora...

What about you Jerry, what's your favorite team?

Hey guys, what do you think about BTTS in this match, can both teams score???
01/23/2014 - 08:43
Fiorentina to winn
01/23/2014 - 11:27
Yes I think la viola can win this match with score 2:0 or 3:0

Hallo. After Milan's defeat Fiorentina will take this game even more seriously because they could meet Udinese in the semifinals. If Napoli defeats Lazio the other semifinal would be Napoli - Roma.

I suggest to open a live thread in the forum for this game tonight. I will follow it live. Is it possible?
01/23/2014 - 14:42
You can open it mate if you want :)
01/23/2014 - 14:54
Ok, ty Damir.See you later
01/23/2014 - 15:08
I would say -1 or -2 asian.
After seen Fiorentina play last sunday against Catania,
I could only see Fiorentina win with a big margin.
Especially because Fiorentina has been very good on their homefield.
Another argument is that Siena is playing Serie B and they are
now in the middle of the tabel.

Gauin: you are right. But dont forget that Fiorentina will miss important regulars (OK all others are good as well, included Rebic, Matos, Wolski and so on). And Siena is in the middle of the table because they started with a penalty of 7 points. But they are good. Wait until tonight.

FOrum thread is open. See you later!
01/23/2014 - 17:27
As I wrote in the forum right now: lot of rain in Florence and stadium still empty. I would not bet OVER2.5 and not Fiorentina to win with many goals.
01/23/2014 - 21:34
It looks like it will be a UNDER2.5
01/23/2014 - 22:13
guys, after I red the thread, my conclusion was that Siena must score.
So they scored and bring me @1.95 for that!
01/23/2014 - 23:27
Great, happy for you Smirnoff!
01/23/2014 - 23:43
I'm glad guys, I bet on Fiorentina BTTS @2.15 with Bani yas, al-alhi dudai to win; I won....
01/24/2014 - 00:17
Congratulations Plies!
01/24/2014 - 01:30
Very nice hit, Jerry!
I also hit my over 2.5 so we're both happy!
Alla prossima.
