Manuel Pasqual has underlined how important Fiorentina’s next three games are in Serie A.
“We want to end 2013 in the best way possible,” the left-back told the Corriere Fiorentino ahead of the tie against Sassuolo.
“We will then have Livorno and Torino after Christmas, two more matches that will allow us to get back on the Champions League train.
“We know that our position in the League could get better with these next three matches, also because our rivals have some games coming up against each other.”
The Viola are currently fourth in the table, five points behind a Napoli side who currently occupy the last Champions League spot.
The Tuscan giants have been inconsistent of late given that they have won three and drawn two of their last five games.
