On the pitch Fiorentina-Bologna 0-0 DIRECT
Fiorentina aims against Bologna to take advantage of the momentum that gave them the conquest of the semi-finals of the Italian Cup after beating Turin on Wednesday.
"At this point, the trophy is a goal - admitted Vincenzo Italiano speaking to the club's channels - but now we have to concentrate on the championship where we are behind schedule".
The team floats in mid-table, far from the European area.
Hence his coach's invitation to confirm the positive results shown in recent matches.
''If we continue to express ourselves at these levels, I am convinced that we will be able to recover points and positions, nothing is compromised.
In the Cup we gave our fans great satisfaction, in the semi-final we will have to face ka Cremonese who eliminated Napoli and Roma and therefore it will be a difficult match.
But we have the means to be able to do well, in the meantime let's enjoy it and think about stopping Bologna, which is a healthy and quality team''.
In the first leg it ended 2-1 for the rossoblù who recovered the initial goal of Martinez Quarta, the Italian would like to take revenge by finding a success that has been missing in Serie A since last January 7 against Sassuolo.
''I warned my team, we need to do a great test, we don't like this classification and we want to improve it.
Some players aren't at 100% but whoever takes the field will be fierce and will try to do their best to make the fans happy''.
Franchi still packed (over 30,000 spectators) and ready to support and push a Fiorentina team that, with the exception of the long-term injured Castrovilli and Sottil, has everyone available,
including Amrabat who returned to the group after breaking his nasal septum against Turin: ''He will be on the pitch with a protective mask, but he's not the first, we have other masked players'' - said Italiano referring to Bonaventura.
Among the ballots in formation those between Dodo and Venuti, Amrabat and Mandragora, Cabral and Jovic.
