Fiorentina – Cremonese Predictions and Preview

  • While Fiorentina head into this Coppa Italia semi-final second leg with a 2-0 aggregate lead, the more studious fans may be acutely aware that the first leg winner failed to progress from two of their last four semi-final appearances in this competition. In reality, a date with Inter or Juventus awaits Fiorentina unless they catastrophically capitulate against Serie A (SA) relegation-bound Cremonese.
  • However, you don’t have to look back too far to find disastrous defending from Fiorentina, who lost 3-2 in back-to-back games ahead of this. Perhaps easing any niggling doubts for La Viola is the fact that they remain unbeaten in all but three of their competitive home games in 2023 (W7, D4, L3), whilst they have not lost by a scoreline at home that would see them eliminated here since Lazio won 4-0 at this venue back in October 2022.
  • Casting further doubt over any large upset will be the fact that Cremonese haven’t won by a three-goal margin since a 4-1 win away to Ascoli during last season’s promotion push. The visitors have done well to pick up six of their last nine available SA points, although a resounding 3-0 defeat against Udinese at the weekend served as a stark reminder that Serie B beckons for the struggling Lombardy club.
  • Damningly, four of Cremonese’s seven wins across the entirety of 2022/23 came in this competition, and whilst they scored first in each cup win, they’ve allowed Fiorentina to score first in all three meetings this season (L3). Football is a funny old game though, but the odds are appropriately stacked against Cremonese from reaching their first ever Coppa Italia final in what is just their second semi-final appearance.
  • Players to watch: Fiorentina’s Rolando Mandragora is by no means prolific, but three of the midfielder’s five domestic goal contributions this season came across the three meetings with Cremonese (G2, A1). He’ll be trying to marshall Cremonese’s Cyriel Dessers, who has made crucial goal contributions in his side’s last two victories (G1, A1).
  • Hot stat: Three of Cremonese’s last six Coppa Italia ties required extra time or penalties to settle them (W4, L2).
