Five Fiorentina forward threats to trouble Juve in Coppa Italia clash

Fiorentina v Juventus

Fiorentina face Juventus in the Coppa Italia semi-final second leg, and hope to use their 2-1 advantage to good use

Ahead of the tasty Coppa Italia semi-final second leg clash between Italian giants Fiorentina and Juventus, give you five forward threats for the former as they hold a 2-1 advantage.

These two teams are highly impressing on the continent too, as Viola (best priced at 12/5 with SkyBet to win this battle in 90 minutes) and Juve (13/10 with Bet365) are in the quarters of the Europa League and Champions league respectively.

But here are five Fiorentina stars that can prevent the Turin titans and runaway Serie A leaders from potentially grabbing the treble this term.

Mario Gomez
The prolific German may have had his fair share of injuries over the past few years, but still knows how to find the net, and has four goals in this competition this season, two of which came in the quarters against Roma. He is a tempting 11/4 with Bwin to score anytime.

Khouma Babacar
Young Senegalese striker Babacar is finally showing his promise, having struck eight times this term for Fiorentina, and is a tasty 8/1 shout also with Bwin to score last, perhaps from off the bench.

Gonzalo Javier Rodriguez
Argentine centre back Gonzalo may be a surprise choice, but the defender has bagged five goals already this term in all competitions, including against top teams such as Roma and AC Milan. The 30-year-old is 15/1 with 888sport in the anytime market.

Mohamed Salah
Since joining on loan from Chelsea in January, the Egyptian attacker has been a revelation for Fiorentina, having fired in an impressive six times from just 11 games. Salah bagged a brace against Juve in the first leg, and is 22/1 with BoyleSports to do so again.

Joaquin Sanchez
The Spaniard is another terrifically talented attacker that has suffered injuries in his early career, but former Valencia, Real Betis and Malaga winger Joaquin has also impressed during his time with Viola. He has a goal to his name against Juventus before, and you can back him at 6/1 with Bet365 to net anytime again.

All odds were correct at time of posting.
