Giuseppe Iachini, the Fiorentina manager, remains hopeful that the team will snap their winless run as they prepare for their clash with Sassuolo. 
 
"Now I only think about the championship final. Tomorrow really doesn't matter if we don't think about the present," Iachini said.
 
"With this group and these guys we want to go and score points to bring the boat home. We will go anywhere on the pitch to win, for example we won five away games in the second round last year.
 
"I'm tied to this shirt and this city, I really don't care about the rest today."
 
The last meeting between Sassuolo and Fiorentina in the league was on 16 December 2020.
