Venue: Stadio Artemio Franchi (Florence)
Fiorentina have begun the campaign in brilliant fashion with three points from their first two games. Despite losing out to Inter Milan on the last matchday, La Viola made themselves a nuisance, giving the Nerazzurri a torrid time.

Meanwhile, Sampdoria are currently in a rut. Two defeats on the bounce is no way to begin a new league season, and La Samp are well aware of that. Surely, they will be desperate to secure a result in this fixture, to get some much-needed points on board.

Fiorentina vs Sampdoria Team News

It appears Fiorentina are on the rise. They were very impressive last season, finishing in the top-half of the standings. Amassing a staggering 49 points from 38 games, La Viola secured tenth-spot, two points clear of the bottom-tier.

This was a significant improvement on their 16th-place finish in the 2018/19 season where they were embroiled in a heated relegation scuffle. Guiseppe Iachini is performing wonders at the club, and surely deserves some plaudits.

Now, the challenge for the Purples will be returning to the highly-revered top-four mix. However, it is fair to say these ones are still some way off the mark. They will need some kind of player overhaul if they are to challenge the Italian big guns for a Champions League place again.

That said, a top-six finish is not out-of-reach for Fiorentina. With all hands on-deck, there is every chance Iachini’s men can go on to make the cut for continental qualification come season-end. Afterall, they weren’t afar off last term.

Beginning their campaign with a narrow 1-0 win over Torino, Fiorentina got off to a flyer. However, they were up against it when they locked horns with Europa League finalists Inter Milan last time out. Against such a strong side, La Viola were always going to be underdogs.

However, Fiorentina took the game to the opposition, giving them a run for their money. They had looked on-course for victory before a late Inter rally condemned them to defeat. Inter’s Lukaku and D’Ambrosio struck in the final three minutes to record a breathtaking 4-3 win.

Expect Fiorentina to return to winning ways when they take on washed-out Sampdoria this match-week. Even though it’s still early days, Sampdoria are starting to look embarrassing. They have suffered defeats in their first two fixtures of the season.

La Samp can have no complaints about the expected 3-0 defeat to Juventus in their opening game of the season. However, the 3-2 loss to newly-promoted Benevento was totally unacceptable. Completely outplayed, Sampdoria could not cope with the opposition’s intensity.

Quagliarella’s brilliance couldn’t save Sampdoria from losing. However, Ranieri will be hoping his star striker rises up to the occasion this Friday, to deliver a desirable result. Expect an enthralling game of football in Florence.

Who will win the match?

Fiorentina vs Sampdoria Predictions

Fiorentina were on-fire against Inter Milan, and could easily have nicked a win on another day. Despite losing, there were loads of positives to be taken from the game for La Viola. However, we have reason to believe Sampdoria will come strong here.

They are on a bad run of form and will be desperate for a response. Also, Fiorentina ran down all the charges in their tank against Inter, and may not play with same intensity here. Hence, contrary to popular opinion, the visitors are in with a shout.

Count on both sides to find the back of net. Alternatively, you could wager a double chance backing Sampdoria for the win.
