Fiorentina will be looking to post a third successive Serie A win over Sampdoria when the two clubs meet face to face at the Stadio Artemio Franchi.
The hosts have failed to build on a 1-0 home triumph over Torino on Matchday 1, surrendering a 1-goal lead in the final five minutes of their Matchday 2 showdown against Inter Milan to suffer a 4-3 away loss. However, Giuseppe Iachini’s men boast a solid home record this calendar year, having sustained just two defeats from 11 Serie A fixtures held in Florence (W4, D5, L2). Low scoring has been a theme for Fiorentina across that 11-game sequence, as eight of those matches have contained under 2.5 goals. On the flip side, all four of their previous top-flight H2Hs held at the Stadio Artemio Franchi have seen over 2.5 goals and both teams on the scoresheet.
Meanwhile, it’s been an utterly disappointing start to the season for Sampdoria, as they’ve lost both of their opening Serie A matches, allowing precisely three goals in each. A lack of concentration in the late stages has seen the ‘Blucerchiati’ ship four of the six league goals conceded this term beyond the 70-minute mark. Furthermore, Sampdoria’s defensive woes have seen them fail to keep a clean sheet in 11 of their previous Serie A trips, last season included. It gets worse, given that seven of those 11 fixtures have witnessed Claudio Ranieri’s men concede over 1.5 goals.
