Fiorentina vs Sampdoria Match Prediction

By Phill Barrs

Fiorentina's fight for the European places will already be tough, and dropping points here at home to Sampdoria would mark a very poor start. They began last Sunday with a 3-0 loss at Inter Milan to a lot of old faces that used to suit up for them. They had chances to score, but they were simply not as ruthless as their counterparts at the San Siro, and ended up falling as a result. Sampdoria did get off to a good start winning 2-1 against Benevento after going down a goal early. After 15 minutes, they trailed to Amato Cicirelli's goal, but Fabio Quagliarella would hit with a brace to win the game for them at home. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Both matches last season ended in draws, as did the meeting before that in the season prior. Overall, it's been a very even tie with Fiorentina recording just one more victory over Sampdoria overall. There isn't much to separate them, except for home field advantage. Fiorentina might not be challengers for Europe, but they do have a strong enough side to obtain victory at home here. Gio Simeone to grab a debut goal for Fiorentina's first in a win can get you 18/1 odds via scorecast with a 1-0 Fiorentina win, which is a good punt. After three straight score draws, that also looks like a good bet, and it can be had at 7/2.

Fiorentina Preview

It's going to take something special this season in order for La Viola to be able to qualify for Europe. After missing out last season, competition for those spots looks to have only heated up now that AC Milan and Inter Milan have improved. And then there's still last season's top three, and Lazio and Atalanta to deal with. On the basis of last week, they will not get there this season after they were thumped by Inter Milan 3-0. It's not the end of the world, but it does show that the losses in center midfield were pivotal. The addition of Gio Simeone is important, though, as he comes into replace Niko Kalinic up front.

Fiorentina Team News

Attacking midfielder Riccardo Saponara's knee injury continues to persist, and will see that he plays no part in this match as a result.

Sampdoria Preview

Sampdoria did exactly what they were expected to do by winning against Benevento at home last week. It was far from a classic for them, but it was about as routine a come-from-behind victory could be at this level. They bossed possession, and they had a number of attempts at goal. Thankfully for them Fabio Quagliarella has decided to turn up. The Italian veteran is confounding at times, and just about perfectly sums up Samp's up and down nature perfectly. This is a team that has a ton of potential, especially in Praet and Ramirez, but they, too, have been inconsistent performers throughout their careers to date. That doesn't add up very well over the course of a season when it comes to challenging for the top half and upper echelons.

Sampdoria Team News

Goalkeeper Emiliano Viviano and left back Dodo will both miss out as Sampdoria seek a second straight win.
