Italian Serie A -- Fiorentina VS Sampdoria

Livescore | Match Prediction & Tips| Asian Handicap Odds|Line-ups& H2H Stats


Fiorentina will be looking to bounce back from Saturday's defeat against Inter Milan when they continue their 2020-21 Serie A campaign at home to Sampdoria on Friday night.La Viola were on the wrong end of a 4-3 scoreline at San Siro last time out but will be eyeing their second league victory of the season when they welcome Sampdoria to Sadio Artemio Franchi.


Match preview

Fiorentina finished 10th in Serie A last season, improving on their 16th-place finish in 2018-19, but it would be fair to say that the Purple One are still some way off returning to being a top-four side.La Viola made a positive start to their 2020-21 campaign, recording a 1-0 victory at home to Torino, but as mentioned, they suffered a 4-3 defeat at Inter on Saturday night.An incredibly open game actually saw Fiorentina lead 1-0 and 3-2 on the night, with Federico Chiesa netting a third for the visitors just past the hour mark in Milan.Romelu Lukaku levelled the scores in the 87th minute, though, before Danilo D'Ambrosio scored an 89th-minute winner as Giuseppe Iachini's side were beaten in their second game of the season.Fiorentina will be looking to return to winning ways on Friday and should be in a confident mood, having recorded a 5-1 victory when they last faced Sampdoria in Serie A back in February.Sampdoria, meanwhile, have lost each of their first two league games of the season, suffering a 3-0 defeat away to Juventus on September 20 before Benevento beat them 3-2 last time out.


Claudio Ranieri's side led 2-0 against Benevento on home soil, but the visitors then netted three times without reply to pick up a huge three points, meaning that La Samp are pointless at this stage.Sampdoria have not been out of Italy's top flight since the 2011-12 campaign, but they finished 15th last season, which was their lowest position at this level for four years.


It is difficult to imagine Ranieri's side dropping out of Serie A due to the quality that they can call upon but another poor result this weekend would certainly leave the fans slightly concerned.
