AS Roma look to solidify their grip on the final Champions League spot when they face Fiorentina at the Stadio Olimpico in Matchday 15 of Serie A.

The Giallorossi moved into the top four with a come-from-behind 2-1 win against Sassuolo and are unbeaten in four league matches, as they target a return to the Champions League.

However, they are coming up against a Fiorentina side who are breathing down their necks and are just a single point behind Roma in the Serie A table.
