The Serie A championship, is ready forits third day.
Montella’s team, take the field against an opponent far from easy to face in search of the first victory of the season.
Fast play and lots of goals, was not enough for the Fiorentina to bring home the first three points of the year. The Bianconeri, after the lucky victory against Napoli, leave Mandzukic at home and making rely on Higuain.
Fiorentina are without wins from 16 Serie A games (6 draws, 10 defeats), and now face Juventus who have won nine of the last 11 direct matches in the league (1 win, 1 draw, 9 defeats).
It is unlikely that playing at home will give ‘La Viola’ an advantage – he hasn’t won in the league here since December (7 draws, 5 defeats).
Juventus have won their first three games in the last three consecutive seasons and will try to respect the tradition.
Furthermore, Juventus have won four of their last five away games (1 defeat) in which they scored the opening goal.
Players to keep an eye on: Erick Pulgar (FIO) has so far scored two goals in Serie A, both on penalty. He scored six goals for Bologna last year, five of them from the penalty spot.
Cristiano Ronaldo (JUV) scored his first goal of the season against Napoli and scored a penalty in the second half in the last direct match played here. He scored 17 (77.27%) of his 22 Serie A goals in the second half.
Fiorentina’s last nine defeats were decided with a margin of one goal.
Both teams only scored in two of the last seven Juventus away games.
There have been seven goals after the 75th minute in the last five games of Juventus in Serie A.

Fiorentina win 5.00, equal to 3.65, Juventus to 1.75
A fast and exciting match is expected, which could leave room for at least one goal per side, the GOL bet is valued at 1.73
