PREVIEW: FIORENTINA AS ROMA
RECAPS
EXTRA TIME
SCOTT PETERSON - Friday, May 3, 2013
Michael Bradley and AS Roma look to continue their push for Europe next season as they take on Fiorentina Saturday night.

Bradley could feature in Aurelio Andreazzoli's starting lineup as the American put in 90 minutes of action last time out versus Siena.

After dispatching second-to-last Siena last week 4-0, the Giallorossi find themselves in fifth place - one up on Udinese, two on Inter and three on Lazio. With such a logjam in the middle of the Serie A standings three points are a must for Roma.

It'll be no easy task, however, as their opponents are in fourth place. Led by Stevan Jovetic, Alberto Acquilani and Adem Ljajic, Fiorentina has plenty of firepower to trouble the Roman backlines.

Should Roma qualify for a spot in one of the European competitions, they will have earned it as their final four matches are this week's away at Fiorentina, then it's home versus Chievo, before travelling to AC Milan and then finishing the season at home versus Napoli.

Kickoff is set for Saturday night at 8:45 p.m. local time.

A big question for U.S. fans heading into the World Cup is surely on Jozy Altidore and just what is plaguing the young striker at Sunderland.
