Fiorentina - Sampdoria prediction
Fiorentina host Sampdoria in a 1/8 final match of the Coppa Italia tournament.
The team from Florence started the race directly from this phase.
While Samp has already overcome two rivals on his way to get here. Both from Serie B – Regina and Ascoli.
In my opinion, however, the Mariners' march will end today at Dr. Artemio Franki Stadium.
Although they are a 4-time Coppa Italia winner.
But as of today, the Genoese are in serious danger of being relegated from Serie A.
And in my opinion, their coach Dejan Stankovic will direct his efforts there - if he can save the team.
Instead of wasting energy on progressing in this tournament.
On the other hand, Fiorentina has been playing with spirit recently and recorded good results (7-2-0).
And he won't mind going as far as possible for the Coppa Italia.
The Violets often concede goals but rarely lose their matches.
So my prediction for today is: 1 and goal/goal.
Especially since Fio's last home match against Samp ended in a 3-1 win for Viola.
Fiorentina - statistics and info
Fiorentina can boast of having won the Coppa Italia 6 times in their history so far.
But the last time this happened was more than 20 years ago - in the 2000/2001 season.
It may turn out that a triumph in this year's edition of the tournament will be the only possible chance for the team from Florence to get an outlet in Europe next year.
Since to date, La Viola is seriously behind not only the top 4 in the Serie A standings , but even the Europa zone.
At the moment, the Violets share 9/10th place in the table with absolutely identical indicators with the Torino team.
But after the return of Calcio after the World Cup , Fiorentina is on the rise, winning 4 points in 2 games .
Sampdoria - statistics and info
The once-glorious Sampdoria team has been in serious trouble for a decade now.
The club from Genoa narrowly escaped relegation to Serie B last season.
And in the last 5-6 years, it invariably finishes in the bottom half of the rankings.
And during this year's campaign , the situation of the Sailors is very serious .
As they fell into the relegation zone right at the start of the season. And they have not left there to this day.
In fact, until the World Cup break, Sampd were even in last place in the standings.
Before they won their first game since the resumption of the championship - 2-1 away to Sassuolo.
But already in the next round, the Genoese returned to losses again with a 0-2 defeat at home against the leader Napoli.
