Juventus Star Primed for First Fiorentina Homecoming

After coming off the bench in the last two games following a thigh injury, Federico Chiesa will likely be back in the starting XI against Fiorentina in the next round. It’ll be the first time he faces his former team at the Stadio Artemio Franchi. He was on the shelf for the previous meetings, La Stampa relays (via Tuttomercatoweb).

Instead, Dusan Vlahovic has already faced the Viola in Tuscany once. He was promptly submerged by the boos and whistles of the crowd. He and the Italian attacker got off to a great start, scoring four goals in the first five rounds. However, they have been hampered by physical problems afterward and have fallen into month-long slumps.

Chiesa and Vlahovic will both seek their maiden goal versus Fiorentina on Sunday. They haven’t had many chances to face their previous outfit thus far, though.

Massimiliano Allegri can enjoy unexpected offensive depth. Moise Kean is hitting his stride, while Arkadiusz Milik makes an impact every time he plays. Still, the young duo will start on most occasions when fit.

Our Take on Chiesa and Vlahovic

The issue for the former was merely physical. He’s clearly their top forward and the only one who can break a game wide open on his own with his bursting runs and determination. Instead, the technical reservations about the Serb continue. He’s struggling to take the next step and round out his game.
