Venue: Stadio Artemio Franchi (Florence).
Referee: Doveri D. (Ita).
Fiorentina extended their winless run in Serie A (SA) to 18 games after their last draw at Atalanta (2-2), despite leading by two goals at one point. That was not so surprising though, as ‘La Viola’ have conceded six of their last nine SA goals (66.67%) in the second half, with five of them arriving in the last 30 minutes. At home, Fiorentina have failed to find the net in six of their last seven SA games, but have scored in eight competitive H2Hs held here, netting at least twice in five of them and opening the scoring seven times.
Sampdoria, meanwhile, ended their three-game losing streak, beating Torino (1-0) in the last round and scoring from open play for the first time this season. The visitors won only five away league games last season, but scored at least four goals three times. Their ability to defend will be crucial, as Sampdoria conceded 35 SA away goals last season, and have already conceded six in two away fixtures this year. Also, if excluding draws, the winning team has netted first in the last ten H2Hs held here.
