Two teams that finished just out of the running for automatic UEFA Europa League berths last season, Fiorentina and Atalanta, meet in Florence on Sunday with the Tuscan team poised to penetrate the Serie A top four if they can defeat a team that has not beaten La Viola in its last 10 tries, according to SB Nation, when the two sides clash in a match that will live stream from the historic city of Florence.
Last season’s eighth-place finishers, Fiorentina, now sit one slot higher on the Serie A table, with 10 points from six games — and should probably be much higher if not for a controversial 2-1 loss to Inter Milan on Tuesday, according to Sky Sports. As a result, Inter hold down the fourth spot in Serie A. But a victory by Fiorentina would put them level on points with the Milan side — and La Viola already lead Inter on goal difference, meaning that a win on Matchday Seven give Fiorentina sole possession of first place.
While Pioli’s team is expected to be largely unchanged with three wins in its first six contests, Brazilian midfielder Gerson may make his return to the starting XI, according to SB Nation, while Kevin Mirallas, Marko Pjaca, and Valentin Eysseric will compete for the starting spot at left wing.

Atalanta has not scored more than a single goal in a match against Fiorentina since February 21 of 2016, according to Sport DA. And in fact, the Bergamo side have not come out of Florence with a victory for 25 years, last winning a match at the Artemio Franchi in 1993, all facts that would seem to indicate that Fiorentina will come away with at least a temporary grip on that final UEFA Champions League berth.
