Grasshoppers - FiorentinaFull stake for me here. Fiorentina is known in Europe for playing one of the best football in last season, with the new coach Montella and the new staff Macià and Pradè who built up a very competitive team made of young and experienced players and did not reach the CL spot just for the famous penalty in Siena-Milan in the last round who gave the 3rd spot to the Rossoneri. This year the team should be considered as improuved, and I say should because the pitch still not gave is judgment (and that's what's important), because if I would not care the pitch's judgment I would say that the team is far better than last season, because Mario Gomez is one of the new arrivals and Pepito Rossi is finally fit to play at his best, while in midfield there are new faces such as Ambrosini (from Milan), Yakovenko (from Anderlecht), Ilicic (from Palermo) and above all Joaquin from Malaga. Tonight they will play in Switzerland against Grasshoppers, who started the season from a month with a 2-3-0 record till now and a 7:3 record in terms of gol scored:conceeded; technically they are much more poor than guests, and the only reason because you find this odd for the away win is that hosts should be more fit physically speaking, as confirmed by the two friendly played lately from Fiorentina that ended up with a 0:2 defeat in Villarreal and a 0:3 defeat in Lisbona, bad losses due only to the fact that the preparation for the season was very long and very hard this year.
I think that we will see Fiorentina always in the offensive half of the pitch, as it's their style and as the opponents are very poor, and also because I think that they would like to close the qualification in the first round if possible, because on monday 26th and on Sunday 1st they will have two important matches of Serie A against Catania (at home) and Genoa (away) and they will try to spare physical resources as much as they can for those matches.
