Verona - form analysis: They are collecting their points quite actively in spring.

The "Mastiffs" are doing what they have done under previous coaches in past seasons - fighting for survival. In spring, they only lost to Milan and Genoa at home and Lazio away. However, they managed to defeat direct competitors, Sassuolo and Lecce, in March, and Udinese in the last round (both by 1-0). Draws against Atalanta and Cagliari were also beneficial.

Fiorentina - form analysis: A very busy schedule.

The "Violets" just opened the semifinal round in the Conference League on Thursday and will play the return and decisive match in Bruges next weekend. A little earlier, they were eliminated from the Italian Cup at the same stage, despite starting with a home win against Atalanta. Even with such a schedule and low chances of competing for the seventh place, they secured confident victories in both recent Serie A matches. They defeated Salernitana (2-0) and Sassuolo (5-1).
