TODAY'S BEST BET | MARCH 2
We’re off to the Coppa Italia for today’s best bet as Fiorentina and Juventus square off for a spot in the final against the winner of AC Milan and Inter.
Juventus have become something of Coppa Italia specialists over the last few years, missing out on the final just once in the last seven seasons – including knocking out Fiorentina at this stage in 2014/15 in Florence by a 3-0 scoreline.
Targeting a 15th Coppa Italia trophy this season, Juventus are solid value to conquer Fiorentina at the Stadio Artemio Franchi and advance into another final.
It promises to be a fiery encounter as well, with Juventus poaching one of the world’s best young strikers in Dusan Vlahovic from Fiorentina during the recent transfer window.
Juventus started the season in underwhelming fashion, but they’ve been very solid over the last few months and come into this showdown unbeaten in their last 18 games in all competitions.
After picking up a point on the road to Villarreal in the Champions League, Juventus defeated Empoli 3-2 in the Serie A over the weekend, with Vlahovic netting a double.
Meanwhile, Fiorentina are down on confidence heading into this clash after falling 2-1 to Sassuolo in the league last weekend.
Fiorentina have also struggled in recent times against Juventus, winning just one of the last nine meetings between the teams. Juventus are also unbeaten in five of their last six visits to Fiorentina, winning three.
Juventus traditionally flourish in this competition and they are in the middle of an 18-game unbeaten run – we like the ‘Old Lady’ at these odds to edge out Fiorentina and return to the Coppa Italia final.
- Juventus are unbeaten in their last 18 games in all competitions
- Juventus have made the Coppa Italia final in six of the last seven seasons
- Juventus are unbeaten vs Fiorentina in eight of the last nine meetings
- Fiorentina haven’t beaten Juventus at home since 2017
- Juventus have won their last two Coppa Italia away ties 2-1
