Analysis

While the Violets in their preceding fixture held on to a 1 goal lead until the 86th minute they conceded 2 goals in the dying moments of the game to lose against Empoli with a 2-1 score line on the road, the Blue-circled came back from a 1 goal deficit at the end of first half to score thrice in the second half and sealed a comfortable 3-1 win at home against Verona.

Doria did not have the greatest of starts to the season as they registered just 1 win in their opening 9 games where they picked up a further 3 points through draws. The side has picked 9 points since and are currently 15th in Serie A with 15 points across their name.

The Lilies, on the other hand, started off the season picking 9 points in the opening 4 games but a run of mediocre games followed and the side is currently 6th in the league with 21 points, 14 points behind league leaders Napoli.

Fiorentina vs Sampdoria Prediction

The hosts have 2 losses at home and both losses came against the top 2 clubs in the league table meanwhile the away team has lost 3 of their preceding 4 games on the road. With such home and away records in mind, I have backed the hosts to win.

The Purples have scored a minimum of 3 goals in all of their preceding 3 home fixtures while the visitors have conceded 3 goals in 3 of their last 4 games away from home. The hosts scoring 3 or more goals could be an excellent option.
