Our Prediction:

Fiorentina will win

Fiorentina – Sampdoria Match Prediction | 26-09-2019 15:00

Sampdoria made a disappointing start of the season with the three consecutive losses. If they want to get back on track first they need to defend their own goal much better and then start to build their game in the middle where they need to control the ball better. In those three games, they scored just once and allowed 9 goals. But that is a long process and Im not expecting to see changes too quickly. They finished last season in the 8th place and current results are a big surprise for everyone.

Sampdoria are another team who shouldnt be in the position they are in, but they did pick up a win at home to Torino over the weekend to climb above Fiorentina. While they too can blame the fixture list a little for their defeats, with tough early games against Napoli and Lazio, their 4-1 defeat at Sassuolo shows there is plenty of work needed here.

Both teams will desperately search for points in this match, so it should be an exciting one. Therefore, I suggest you read my whole match preview to get the best betting tips and correct score predictions for this fixture. This match will take place at the Stadio Artemio Franchi in Florence. Fiorentina vs Sampdoria prediction arrives ahead of the 5th round fixture of the Italian Serie A.

In the league, the host has not conjured a win though but the visiting side is also winless in their away ties. Fiorentina would have had a thirteen game unbeaten run if it was not for the lone defeat in the 2017 SA game. Besides that, the host has been undefeated in the previous two encounters with Sampdoria at home. Moreover, the visiting side has won only once in the last seven away fixtures.

They have been easily conceding in the league as they let in 9 goals from four matches. Sampdoria will be traveling on a winless streak in their SA trips on the road. Their scoring is yet hasty as the visitor could only manage two goals in whole. The guest has suffered three losses and tasted success in the previous clash at home.

Manolo Gabbiadinis goal helped Eusebio di Francescos troops put an end to their three-game losing run in the Serie A, but seeing that Fiorentina want this victory more than Sampdoria, home win should be considered. A man to keep an eye on in the home side will be Italy international Federico Chiesa, who is likely to pose a big threat for the opposition defenders. La Samp, on the other hand, desperately needed a win over Torino and they managed to get one.

Fiorentina vs Sampdoria Best Bet

Also, five of these games were held at home. The home team has lost only twice in the previous five home matches. Hence, there are more chances for scoring to happen from both sides of the field. Another thing to note is that both teams have found the back of the net in the previous eight encounters. Moreover, they did manage to tie with the reigning champions Juventus in their previous home tie.

The visitors at least come here on a high, while Fiorentina are in terrible form. Fiorentina are winless in their last 18 league games, which includes a run of seven losses in 10 matches. The hosts have won just two of their last 24 matches in Serie A, the entirety of 2019. That awful run has left them near the bottom of the table yet again.

In the previous 5 H2H meetings we saw mixed results, 2 games were without a winner, Sampdoria won twice and Fiorentina once. This is going to be one tight match for sure, where both opponents give their best to exit the dangerous relegation zone, but I believe that the home pitch advantage and a bit better form will help the hosts to grab a victory and much-needed points this time.

With that in mind, and with the form that Fiorentina have been showing recently, this looks to be the game in which they will finally get off the mark. They have shown more in their recent draws that Sampdoria have in any of their games including the win they picked up at the weekend, and it looks to us like the Fiorentina fans will finally be able to go home from this one knowing their team has three points in the bag.
