Fiorentina Preview

The Viola returned to glamour last year and were prepared for Champions League participation before the Calciopoli scandal struck. They have kept their key men and 2005-06 goal scoring leader Luca Toni, but their aspirations are limited by a massive 19-point penalty.

Goal: Qualification for the UEFA Cup
Prediction: They will sneak a UEFA Cup spot
