Fiorentina vs Rapid Vienna Predictions

The Quest for Europa Conference League Redemption

Key Stats
– Nicolas Gonzalez has been a revelation for Fiorentina, with all his last four Serie A goals being headers.
– Rapid Vienna, despite recent challenges, have an unbeaten streak of four games, including their win against Fiorentina.
– Fiorentina’s home game advantage might play a crucial role, given Rapid Vienna’s mixed away game performances.

Coming off the back of a defeat in Austria, Fiorentina face an uphill battle in the second leg of the Europa Conference League playoff against Rapid Vienna at Stadio Artemio Franchi. Having narrowly missed out on the Europa Conference League title to West Ham earlier this year, Fiorentina took the scenic route to the 2024 final by travelling to Vienna. Benefiting from Juventus’s absence in continental competition, they seized the opportunity for a Conference League comeback.

Under the guidance of the esteemed coach, Vincenzo Italiano, Fiorentina exhibited almost the same line-up that triumphed against Genoa. But despite this continuity, the trip to Allianz Stadion didn’t go as planned. With the crowd’s roar in Vienna echoing, Rolando Mandragora’s unfortunate foul paved the way for Rapid Vienna’s Marco Grull to clinch the match. This outcome wasn’t a shocker for Fiorentina’s loyalists, given their past track record of only six league away victories. Moreover, their subsequent inability to seal a win against Lecce indicated a rocky journey in Serie A.

Rapid Vienna, riding on the wave of their recent triumph, also had a mixed weekend. Although they displayed commendable performance against WSG Tirol, they had to be content with a draw. Yet, they’ve managed to extend their unbeaten streak, celebrating victories over Fiorentina and Debrecen.

Despite living in the shadows of league titans like Red Bull Salzburg, Rapid Vienna boasts a rich UEFA legacy. They’ve graced European finals twice in history but faced challenges in recent years. With the next match at the Stadio Franchi, Zoran Barisic’s boys have a golden opportunity to outshine last season’s Conference League finalists and enter the group phase.

Line-Up Insights and Player Analysis

As the transfer window approaches, Fiorentina fans might not see the likes of Sofyan Amrabat and Luka Jovic, who have been sidelined. Injuries continue to plague the team with players like Antonin Barak and Gaetano Castrovilli unavailable. Recent recruit Lucas Beltran, who replaced Arthur Cabral, will be keen to make his mark against Rapid Vienna. Interestingly, Nicolas Gonzalez has been on a roll, with his recent goals notably being headers – a transformation from his previous playing style.

Rapid Vienna will likely showcase a line-up mirroring their previous match against Fiorentina. Marco Grull, alongside star forward Guido Burgstaller, might take a break after their weekend match. The unfortunate injury to Nenad Cvetkovic means Maximilian Hofmann will don the defender role.


1. Match Outcome: Given Fiorentina’s home advantage and Rapid Vienna’s away form, it’s feasible to go with the ‘both teams to score’ market. Fiorentina’s past matches indicate they can find the net, and Rapid Vienna’s recent scoring spree in the league makes them potent threats.

2. Correct Score: Based on both teams’ recent performances, a 2-1 victory in favour of Fiorentina seems plausible.

3. Goalscorer Prediction: Nicolas Gonzalez, with his recent form of netting goals consecutively, particularly with headers, is our pick for a goalscorer in this fixture.
