Last time: That first leg victory for Juventus was the last time these two met. But the Bianconeri also won their Serie A meeting at home in November.

Juventus vs. Fiorentina Predictions and Preview

The first leg of this Coppa Italia semifinal was all about Dušan Vlahović. The Serbian striker had only left the Stadio Artemio Franchi just two months earlier and he was the focus of the Fiorentina fans’ fury from the warm-ups to the final whistle. In the end, he didn’t actually make an impression on the game, touching the ball just eight times. But all eyes will be on Vlahović once again on Wednesday when the teams meet once more.

After looking very shaky earlier in the season, Juventus now have a top four finish as a priority but would dearly love to win the Coppa Italia once again as a bonus. Although Fiorentina have played some wonderful football this season, they are fighting to be involved in European qualification from Serie A. So an automatic Europa League group stage berth courtesy of the Coppa Italia would be perfect for Vincenzo Italiano and his players.

Juventus vs. Fiorentina full time result odds

Fiorentina have only beaten Juventus once in any competition since 2017, so the odds are definitely against an away win on Wednesday. But they did dominate the first leg and will hope that they can repeat that performance – if not the result – without the help of their raucous and passionate home crowd. Juve are 17/20 to win this one though and should prevail, even if the game is closely fought.

Juventus vs. Fiorentina both teams to score odds

There will be a lot of passion on display at the Allianz Stadium on Wednesday. But Fiorentina showed how they can nullify even a player like Vlahović when needed in the first leg. That might be tougher away from home but there is also no need for Juventus to score. La Viola will be desperate to find the net to extend their chances of progressing but a bet against both teams to score at 17/20 looks best.

Juventus vs. Fiorentina correct score odds

With no new injury worries, Maxi Allegri will look to his defence to pull the team through here and limit Fiorentina’s scoring chances. The advantage of the one goal from the first leg – and the away goals rule still in Juve’s favour – puts the onus on the visitors to score. That, in turn, could leave some gaps at the back for Fiorentina as the game goes on. So, a 1-0 Juventus victory at 6/1 looks like good value.

Juventus vs. Fiorentina first goalscorer odds

The build up to the first leg game was all about Vlahović’s return to Florence. But the crowd and the Fiorentina players made sure that he was unable to make an impact. With the support of his new fans, the Serbian may be able to carve out a few more chances and it would be the final nail in the coffin for Fiorentina’s Coppa Italia hopes if he was to score the only goal of the game.
