Genoa v Fiorentina
Finally we face them. Qualifying for the Champions League for a second time in a row will do two things. Firstly, it will increase our reputation, something we could have done this year if we had qualified for the second round and completed the quadruple of Italian v English club teams and possibly faced Liverpool. The second thing of course is cash which we'll need in this day and age.
But, we'll wait till next year.
That is if there is a next year, because if any team is going to beat us for 4th it will the this fantastic Genoa side...who were battered by Roma 3-0 last week, who, by the way, also fighting for 4th. The most nail biting league in the European season and it is not broadcast here. Hopefully, their prior loss, coupled with our three wins in a row will propel us to put some distance between us and 5th place. Roma who are 6th have the same number of points as Genoa, they are away to Atalanta who are looking for a UEFA Cup...sorry, UEL spot so a real chance to put some distance between us and the dreaded UEL.
