Sampdoria vs Fiorentina: Prediction

I can see a very balanced game, but not a goalless one. I reckon both sides will get on the scoresheet and share the spoils in the end. And, to be fair, given the current situation, they would be OK with that. I’ll take the Draw here.

Both teams have scored in four of the last five Sampdoria’s games and the same bet landed in seven of the eleven Fiorentina’s road matches. Let’s hope for a 1-1 stalemate here. Good luck!
