Fiorentina started the new season with a big victory over Udinese, but in the second round lost from Napoli.
The coach Vincenzo Montella can’t be satisfied with the results as Fiorentina have big ambitions this season. However, something else is important for my pick – both matches of Fiorentina have ended with Over 2.5 goals.
Catania started the new campaign very good. In the first round they were close to win against Roma at Olimpico, but a lack of concentration in the last minutes prevent them from the victory. In the second round they won against Genoa. Like Fiorentina, both matches have finished with Over 2.5 goals.
The tradition is supporting my pick. Six of the last seven mutual games at Stadio Artemio Franchi have ended with Over 2.5 goals.
I expect another high scoring match. Fiorentina will strongly attack from the very first minute in order to win. But Catania proved against Roma they can be very dangerous through fast counterattacks. So, there should be at least three goals here.
