AS Roma continue their pursuit of the top four when they visit Fiorentina at the Stadio Artemio Franchi in Matchday 28 of Serie A, as they look to maintain their impressive form.

The Giallorossi have turned their campaign around since hiring Daniele De Rossi to replace Jose Mourinho in January and are in fifth, but just four points off Bologna.

Fiorentina made a bright start to the season but any hopes of Champions League qualification have faded, as they sit in eighth, but a win over Roma would move them to within two points of the Lupi.
