Fiorentina vs Sampdoria
Italy Serie A
Date: Friday, 2 October 2020
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: Stadio Artemio Franchi, Firenze.
Game week three in Italian Serie A is starting on Friday night with a duel between Fiorentina and Sampdoria.
The Viola were involved in some of the best matches Italian football offered in the last couple of years, losing to Inter Milan last week 3-4 FT.
Their fans are surely hoping to see another attacking performance like that, but also hoping to close the gaps in defense and concede significantly less goals.
After all, team from Firenze is hoping to battle for Europa League this season. Sampdoria had an awful start to the new football campaign, still looking for the first points.
Fiorentina vs Sampdoria Head-to-head
It will take some time for Sampdoria’s fans to forget humiliation caused by Fiorentina in the last season. Viola conquered Genoa, completely outplayed the hosts and won the match 5-1. Vlahovic and Chiesa scored two goals each in that encounter, and they should be in the main roster this Friday as well.
The last ten head to head matches between Fiorentina and Sampdoria have ended BTTS, so don’t be surprised to see a lot of goals at Artemio Franchi.
When it comes to all time stats, Fiorentina are ahead 13-11 in terms of victories.
Fiorentina vs Sampdoria Prediction
Fiorentina achieved some incredible results during the pre-season. Guiseppe Iachini’s squad scored 15 goals in the last three test games, and won the first official game against Torino 1-0 at this stadium. In the abovementioned clash against Inter Milan, violets from Firenze had the lead in two occasions. They were actually ahead until the 87th minute. Franck Ribery was phenomenal at Meazza, providing two assists. We are expecting him to once again be super-dangerous on the wing and help Fiorentina to win this match. Home win is priced at 1.72 odds at the moment.
Sampdoria’s start in Serie A has been catastrophic so far. Loss to Juventus in Torino was expected, unlike home defeated to Benevento last week 2-3 FT. We think they will go down in Firenze but score at least one goal.
