The status quo remain the same in the leadership.  Juventus keeping the first position reaching 35 points after defeating Atalanta at the Atleti Azzurri D’Italia Stadium.  Inter remain in the second position reaching 34 points after defeating Torino at the Olimpico di Torino Stadium.

Napoli slowing down and their quest to be among the top 3 positions seem a mirage.   Napoli failed to defeat AC Milan at the San Siro Stadium ending with a 1 – 1 draw.  The draw is not helping any, but Milan also sinking failing to win the home game.

Good news is for Sampdoria because they have abandoned the relegation zone.  Sampdoria defeated Udinese with a 2-1 giving them the full 3 points.  Sampdoria climbed from the 18th to the 16th position.

Montella reacts to defeat at Verona


Vincenzo Montella refused to criticise his Fiorentina side’s effort as they were beaten 1-0 by Hellas Verona at the Stadio Bentegodi on Sunday afternoon.

“I don’t think it was a high-quality game today,” he said after the game. “We put the effort in and kept showing that we didn’t want to lose right until the end. Verona were better than us at times. They’ve caused every team they’ve played so far problems, so I wasn’t expecting anything different today. I expected a higher standard, but I think the team responded in the right way in terms of the effort.”

Montella singled out Sebastian Cristoforo for praise after the Uruguayan came back into the Viola midfield after a long spell out of the team.
“I want to give credit to Cristoforo, because he has not played much football at all,” he said. “He left every drop of sweat out there so I want to congratulate him because it was quite possible that we wouldn’t have been able to give 100% today because he hadn’t played for so long.”
There were a smattering of boos from the travelling fans at the end of the game, with Montella acknowledging that nobody wants to see the Viola lose.
“I heard them and I understand them,” he said. “They cheered us on all game and have done all season so I think they are entitled to express their dissatisfaction in such a civil way. We’ll do everything to give them back that enthusiasm that only wins can create. Nobody likes losing, but we’ve produced seven or eight top performances this season and nobody was expecting that.”

Montella rallies Fiorentina ahead of Verona trip

Vincenzo Montella has warned his Fiorentina team to expect a tough test as they travel to the Stadio Bentegodi to take on Hellas Verona on Sunday afternoon.

“It’ll be a really physical battle tomorrow because Verona are a really compact side whose strengths are their hard work, their running and their team spirit,” said the Viola boss in his pre-match press conference on Saturday. “They’re very well organised from a tactical perspective and have the second-best defensive record in the league. They’re definitely the surprise package of the season, alongside Cagliari, especially given the fact that they’re a newly promoted side. We’ll need to ensure we are as competitive and focused as possible.”

Yet Montella was keen to stress that Verona are more than just a good defensive team.
“They are strong in defence because they all defend,” he said. “In their last game they came out and pressed Inter on the edge of their box. They’re a very good counter-attacking side so for us it will be essential that we maintain our focus throughout the game.”
The Fiorentina coach went on to acknowledge that the Viola must raise their game to bounce back from the 5-2 defeat at Cagliari just before the international break.
“It was a heavy defeat, not just in terms of the scoreline but also in terms of the performance throughout the game,” he said. “The team has shown desire and we know we need to make sure our performance is right. On the one hand, we need to forget that game and kick on, because this is a new cycle of matches, but on the other we need to remember it so we don’t make the same mistakes again in terms of performance, mentality or whatever you want to call it. Technical and tactical factors came into it too, but those were a consequence of that.
Franck Ribery will return for the trip to Hellas following his suspension – but Montella was quick to dismiss any suggestions that his team are becoming dependent on the French winger.
“Ribery has been a big absence for us but he would have been for any team,” he said. “I think it did him good because he had a few knocks and now he is in good shape. We can’t use it as an excuse when he or anyone else is missing.”
Last but not least, Montella had a message for the Fiorentina supporters, who are expected to be at the Bentegodi in numbers to support the team on Sunday afternoon.
“We want to thank the fans,” he said. “They always make their support felt, even in the last game, which was a tough away trip. They were great after the game – we feel that support and we want to repay them every time we play.”

Five things you need to know about Hellas Verona v Fiorentina

Fiorentina travel to Hellas Verona on Sunday afternoon looking to bounce back from defeat to Cagliari last time out and begin a crucial run of fixtures with a win.

Ahead of the game, we’ve put together these five key facts you should know about the fixture.

1)    Hellas Verona and Fiorentina have faced off at the Stadio Bentegodi (and the Stadio Comunale) before it, on 35 occasions in Serie A, Serie B, the Coppa Italia and the old Divisione Nazionale. The Viola have the best of the record so far with 14 wins, ten draws and 11 defeats, plus 46 goals for and 43 against. The first Verona v Fiorentina fixture in the top tier of Italian football took place back on 17 November 1957, ending in a 1-0 win for Fiorentina courtesy of a goal from Francisco Ramon Lojacono. Part of that Verona side were Francesco Rosetta, who had won the Scudetto with Fiorentina two years previously, and Osvaldo Bagnoli, who would lead Verona to Scudetto glory as manager in the 1984/85 season.
2)    Giancarlo Antognoni has an indelible bond with Hellas Verona and the Stadio Bentegodi. It was away at Verona that Antognoni made his debut, on 15 October 1972, in a 2-1 win for the Viola. From the very beginning, it was clear that Antognoni (who, unusually, was wearing the No.8 shirt that day), was going to be some player. Fast forward 15 years to 15 March 1987: Verona and Fiorentina play out a 2-2 draw, with Antognoni scoring what would be the final away goal of his Viola career with a shot from outside the area. Antognoni’s final goal for the club came a month later, at home against Empoli, sticking away the rebound after his initial effort had been kept out from the penalty spot.
3)    Trips to play away at Hellas Verona have seen some of the most memorable goals in Fiorentina history. The first goal worthy of note was scored on 7 November 1976: Antognoni stepped up over a free-kick on the edge of the area, before striking the ball with the outside of his foot to dispatch an arching, serving shot that Verona keeper Franco Superchi was powerless to keep out (Superchi was, incidentally, part of the Fiorentina side that won the Scudetto in 1968/69). The other goal deserving of a mention was scored by Eraldo Pecci on 28 October 1984 – direct from a corner. Fiorentina ended up losing the game 2-1, and indeed Hellas went on to clinch Scudetto glory at the end of the season, but that goal from Pecci – regardless of whether you think it was luck, coincidence or sheer brilliance – will live long in the memory.
4)    The Verona v Fiorentina match on 3 March 2002 will go down in history as the final league victory of AC Fiorentina, before the club went bankrupt a few weeks later. It was a 2-1 win with Domenico Morfeo and Adriano getting the goals for the Viola, while a young Adrian Mutu scored for Verona. In the next nine games, Fiorentina could only manage two draws and seven defeats, finishing the season in penultimate position.
5)    Fiorentina have won their last six matches against Verona at the Stadio Bentegodi, with the most recent victory the 5-0 thrashing on 10 September 2017, when the Viola scorers were Giovanni Simeone, Cyril Thereau (penalty), Jordan Veretout, Gil Dias and the late Davide Astori. It was the last of Astori’s three goals for Fiorentina. The other two both came at the Stadio Artemio Franchi, against Crotone and Inter.
