After 21 matchdays in Serie A, Fiorentina can be found sitting in 13th position on the log with 25 points accumulated. Overall, La Viola has won six matches, drawn seven and lost eight, with 25 goals scored and 29 conceded. There was a change on the bench not long before Christmas, when Giuseppe Iachini (who played for the club between 1989 to 1994) took over from Vincenzo Montella.
Serbian Vlahovic is the top scorer in the league for the Tuscan side, with four goals scored and he is followed by Chiesa, Pulgar, Castrovilli and Milenkovic (who will not be present in Turin due to suspension) with three strikes, while Pezzella and Ribery (whose last game was played on 30 November against Lecce) have two.
This past week, Fiorentina took to the pitch at San Siro against Inter where they battled for a spot in the Italian Cup semi-finals. However, it was Inter who triumphed 2-1. In the last league match, Fiorentina drew 0-0 against Genoa on home soil, with goalkeeper Dragowski neutralizing a penalty kick from Criscito.
Iachini brought in an important reinforcement during the January transfer window: Patrick Cutrone. In the early part of the season, "Cutro" donned the Wolverhampton shirt, scoring twice in 12 Premier League games. And he wasted no chance in getting on the scoresheet for his new side when he scored and assisted in a goal in Fiorentina's Round of 16 Italian Cup match against Atalanta.
