Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Following a 3-2 loss to Monza, Fiorentina will look to get back on course in the Serie A when they take on Sampdoria on Sunday afternoon. The Viola failed to win the previous three league fixtures, but they will not have a better chance than this to get back on course. Both Giacomo Bonaventura and Salvatore Sirigu should miss out through injuries, while Josip Brekalo is a major doubt and he will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.
La Samp, on the other hand, are on a four-game winless run in the Italian top flight. The visitors, on the other hand, are stuck at the bottom with only 17 points in their pockets. The rock-bottom side have slim survival chances, and given their difficulties at the back, we predict that Fiorentina are going to emerge triumphant in Sunday’s encounter. Midfielder Abdelhamid Sabiri is back from suspension, while there are no fresh injury worries in the away team.
