The stats behind our Fiorentina vs Roma predictions:

  • Roma have lost just one of their 10 matches (all comps) since Jose Mourinho’s departure, and that was against runaway Serie A leaders Inter.
  • Despite their strong form, Roma have kept just two clean sheets in their last seven games across all competitions.
  • For Fiorentina, that record stands at just two in 12 matches.
  • Romelu Lukaku has scored in each of his last two Roma appearances and netted their only goal in a 1-1 draw with Fiorentina earlier this season.

Can Roma qualify for the Champions League?

Roma’s removal of Jose Mourinho in January was a hugely unpopular decision among the club’s supporters but it has proven the catalyst for an incredible turnaround in form.

Under club legend Daniele De Rossi, the Giallorossi have won seven of their 10 games across all competitions since Mourinho’s departure, with their sole defeat in that time coming against a rampant Inter side that are strolling to the title.

The result of this turnaround has been Roma climbing to fifth in the Serie A table, just four points adrift of surprise package Bologna in fourth.

And even if Roma don’t secure Champions League qualification through the league route, they hold a commanding 4-0 lead over Brighton after the first leg of their Europa League round-of-16 tie. Of the teams left in that competition, Roma will likely only seriously worry about Liverpool, Bayer Leverkusen and AC Milan. They’re firmly among the favourites.

Given where they were at the start of the year, Champions League qualification would go down as a remarkable achievement for Roma and a great addition to De Rossi’s still very small managerial CV.
