A disappointing 2021-22 campaign for Juventus comes to a close on the road this weekend, as they take on Fiorentina. The hosts still have something to play for on the final day, as they will need a win to seal qualification to the Europa Conference League.
Serie A Preview
Juventus will end the 2021-22 domestic season without a major piece of silverware, but it is fair to say that things could have been much worse for the Old Lady. They were looking unlikely to finish in a Champions League finish earlier in the campaign, which means that it will be a relief that they have at least finished fourth.
However, they can’t finish any higher this term, as they are six behind Napoli. Juventus have endured a slow end to the season, as they have won just twice in their last five fixtures.
They have also gone two without a victory coming into the final day of the season. The Old Lady ended their home season on Monday night with a 2-2 draw against Lazio. Dusan Vlahovic and Alvaro Morata scored in the first half, but their rivals hit back in the second period.
Fiorentina are still fighting for something on the final day of the season, as they need a victory to ensure that they finish in the Europa Conference League spot. They are likely to be pushed to the brink by Atalanta, who will be looking to bounce in Fiorentina don’t pick up maximum points on the final weekend of the season.
Fiorentina’s recent form certainly offers hope to Atalanta, as they have won just once in their previous five. They have also lost four times during that period, which includes a defeat in their last fixture against Sampdoria. Fiorentina were thumped 4-1 in that away fixture.
Fiorentina vs Juventus Head to Head
Juventus boast a strong record in this fixture, as they have lost just once in their previous nine fixtures against Fiorentina. That defeat came back in December 2020. Juventus picked up a 1-0 fixture in the reverse fixture between the sides. However, each of the previous two games played in Florence have ended in draws.
Fiorentina vs Juventus Prediction
The hosts have something to fight for this weekend, and they will need to be at their very best to get the win that they need. However, give their form, it is hard to support their chances, which means we could see the Old Lady ending the season with a win.
