Next Match: away to Sassuolo, December 22
Europe: UEFA Europa League (Round of 32)
Fiorentina coach Vincenzo Montella hopes his players can pick up where they left off in last weekend's 3-0 triumph over Bologna when they visit Sassuolo on Sunday. The victory, Fiorentina's ninth of the campaign, allowed the Viola to bounce back from their 2-1 loss to Rome in the previous round. Fiorentina are fourth in the standings, two points clear of nearest rivals Inter Milan. "We interpreted the game better than any other this season," Montella said. "I am very satisfied. I hope the team will be able to play like this again in future." The Viola will be without pivotal midfielder Juan Guillermo Cuadrado, who serves a one-match ban this weekend.
