Fiorentina aims to restart after the defeat in Rome against Lazio and a complicated classification round: on Sunday Cagliari arrive at the Franchi in a match defined by Cesare Prandelli, a real direct clash. «Two teams in difficulty in results will face each other – said the Viola coach -. It will therefore be a very demanding game, the goal is to win even by playing poorly. We are fighting not to be relegated and we must respect the shirt we wear for its history and its coat of arms ». The absence of fans, Covid, the market are all aspects that are weighing on the championship but Prandelli is not looking for an excuse: “Now it is most important to put into practice a few clear ideas, without thinking about playing the game for 90 ‘, ready to overturn certain situations. With Lazio which are great, beyond the defeat, we made a good test, without fear, proving that we are a team: this is the path we must follow and we must give continuity, so I’m not worried even if something needs to be corrected in the last passage ».
Fiorentina will challenge the Cagliari of the former Simeone and Sotti without the suspended Castrovilli and most likely without Ribery struggling with the right knee injury remedied at the Olimpico. Regardless of who will take the field, however, the viola will go in search of a success that has been missing at home since 25 October, from 3-2 against Udinese, all while the market is in full swing: “Right now I don’t have the I don’t want to talk about it, the matches count more, there is an open discussion with the club, for sure, as I said at the time, I don’t want exchanges between unhappy players ».
