The second leg of the Coppa Italia semi-final between Atalanta and Fiorentina promises to be a closely contested match as both teams look to secure their place in the final. With Fiorentina leading 1-0 from the first leg, the stage is set for a tight contest as the home side looks to overcome the deficit and secure a spot in the tournament final.

Atalanta vs Fiorentina Preview 

Atalanta Preview

Atalanta comes into this fixture in a buoyant mood, having displayed impressive form by passive over Liverpool in the quarter-finals of the Europa League, thanks to their Anfield win (0-3). Despite chaotic performances in the Serie A, recently, Atalanta has great chances to make its way to the Champions League next season, being only 4 points away from the 5th place. Despite inconsistencies during the season, Atalanta still maintains a cohesive display in Coppa Italia. Historically, Atalanta has faced challenges in this competition, clinching the title only once in 1963. However, their recent performances demonstrate a side in contention for further success in the Coppa Italia.

Fiorentina Preview 

Under the leadership of Vincenzo Italiano, Fiorentina continues to perform consistently in Serie A, currently occupying tenth place in the championship standings. However, the Coppa Italia proved their credibility as they reached at least the semi-finals in each of Italiano's three seasons. Fiorentina's key players to watch, Giamoco Bonaventura and Pietro Terracciano, have played a major role in their recent success with an impressive goalscoring record. Despite Fiorentina's recent inconsistent performance in Serie A, the Coppa Italia’s run shows that the team looks more decent in short-distance knockout competitions. The Viola will be looking to make the most of their home advantage and take some serious action to secure their place in the final.
