Vlahovic’s Juventus career has not exactly started on the brightest of notes, but the young striker squares up to his former team yet again as Juventus meet Fiorentina in the Coppa Italia semi-finals. Although Juventus have a technical chance of winning Serie A, the game against Fiorentina represents their only realistic chance to get a shot at silverware this season. The match is scheduled for 00:30 IST on the 21st of April, 2022.

Juventus have a slender one-goal advantage from the first leg and will hope to seal their place in the finals quickly in front of their home fans. Fiorentina have been impressive since that loss to Juventus and will fancy their chances of triumphing in Turin after witnessing Juventus lose to Villarreal by 3 goals to nil.

Juventus Form and Team News

Allegri’s charges have managed to keep themselves in the title race, with only six points between them and first placed AC Milan. While they have an outside chance of winning the league, they have a more realistic shot at domestic glory in the Coppa Italia. 

Since winning at Fiorentina, Juventus have won four times and lost twice, with one of those losses coming at the hands of Villarreal in the UCL. They defeated Sampdoria by 4 goals to 1 and Sassuolo by 2 goals to 1 to set up a semi-final meeting with Fiorentina. Dusan Vlahovic and Paolo Dybala have scored 3 and 2 goals, respectively, for the Old Lady.

Marley Ake, Weston McKennie, Manuel Locatelli, Arthur, and Jorge Kaio may have to sit out Fiorentina’s visit as they are currently sidelined with injuries.

Fiorentina Form and Team News

Football analysts may have predicted that Fiorentina would suffer upon losing their star man Vlahovic in January, but Italiano Vincenzo’s men have been impressive since. They lie two points off the final Champions League qualification place, with a game in hand, and have 3 wins and 2 draws in their last 5 matches.

Their path to the semi-finals has been impressive, with a 2–1 win over Benevento followed by a 5–2 trouncing of Napoli before overcoming Atalanta by three goals to two. Krzysztof Piatek has scored thrice for the Florence outfit, while defender Lorenzo Venuti has struck twice.

Giacomo Bonaventura and Alvaro Odriozola are the only absentees for Fiorentina as they will miss this trip to Turin due to injuries.

Tipster’s Angle

Juventus have a great head-to-head record against Fiorentina over the last 10 meetings between the two teams. Seven wins, two draws, and one loss is an impressive record, and with Fiorentina’s last win against Juventus coming in December 2020, the Old Lady have a strong chance to come out on top.

One cannot deny the form that this Fiorentina team are in presently, having triumphed over an in-form Napoli in their last Serie A outing. They have a strong chance to overturn the deficit, especially as Juventus have been unconvincing in recent weeks. Here are our thoughts on this fixture:

Tip: Juventus to Win Either Half @ 1.5

Juventus have been unconvincing at home in recent times, but they will be desperate to hold on to their advantage and avoid a repeat of the Villarreal game. They have been dominant against Fiorentina in recent years, and we expect them to come out on top in at least one half. Juventus to win either half is available on the Melbet sportsbook at 1.50 odds.

Tip: Either Team to Win @ 1.315

A draw would be sufficient for Juventus to scale through, but Fiorentina will not sit back as they have nothing to lose. We expect both sides to chase a victory on the night, and the outcome for either team to win is available at 1.315 odds on the Paripesa sportsbook.


Fiorentina have recorded some excellent displays in this Coppa Italia edition, and we expect them to put in a good showing in Turin. Juventus are natural favorites to win, but they will not have an easy outing, and this tie can still go either way.
