Here is the latest on the form and team news for Fiorentina and Atalanta:
Fiorentina have had to deal with losing their star man, Dusan Vlahovic, in January, and that loss has affected their form ever so slightly. They are on a run of 2 wins, 2 losses, and 1 draw in the league and have picked up 39 points after 24 matches played.
La Viola, as Fiorentina are fondly called, sit 8th in the league, having won 12 matches, drawn 3, and lost 9, leaving them 3 points off the 6th spot, currently occupied by Lazio. They have scored 43 goals and conceded 34— Vlahovic contributed a large percentage of their goals before his departure. 29-year-old defender Cristiano Biraghi is their top scorer (after Vlahovic, now recognized as a Juventus player) with 4 goals.
For the latest on their team news, Fiorentina do not have any absences due to injury or suspension at writing time.
Atalanta are suffering from a minor dip in form that has seen them record 3 draws and 2 losses in their last 5 games in all
competitions. In the league, they have just 1 win in 5 games, which came against Udinese on the 9th of January. They still hold the 5th position, a Europa League spot, and can go back to 4th place if they triumph over Fiorentina.
After 24 matches played, Atalanta have 12 wins, 8 draws, and 4 losses, and have scored 46 goals and conceded 29. Duvan Zapata remains their leading goalscorer with 9 goals and 4 assists in the league.
For their team news, Atalanta will be without the services of Jose Luis Palomino, Duvan Zapata, Josip Ilicic, and Aleksey Miranchuk, who are currently sidelined with injury.
