Sampdoria – Fiorentina 28.04.2013
Boosted by the 4:3 victory over Torino, Fiorentina are eager to continue their two-game winning run when they take on Sampdoria,
who have been completely out of form of late. Viola look closer to pick up all three points from Luigi Ferraris stadium.
Since their return to the top flight Fiorentina established themselves as a top table side and this season Vicenzo Montella’s men are likely to book their place in European competitions. Viola are currently just one point adrift of Milan, who are sitting in Champions League places meaning that the game against Sampdoria this weekend should be very important for the team. Fiorentina’s performances on the travels have been promising of late, the team defeated Lazio and Atalanta on the road and now they are brimming with confidence ahead of the trip to Genoa. Viola’s displays up front have also been scintillating in the last few rounds, with the team have scored 12 goals in five encounters. One of the best Fiorentina players Stevan Jovetic is back to the starting line-up and with the Montenegrin striker Viola’s attack should look more dangerous. Taking all into account there is every chance Fiorentina will return home with all three points in their pocket.
Match: Sampdoria – Fiorentina 15.00h
League: Serie A
Our prediction: Away Win Odds: 2.00
Sampdoria, on the other hand, have always been fighting for the Serie A survival since their return to the elite division and la Samp are likely to play in the top flight for yet another term as the team are currently sitting in 14th position in the standings, nine points clear of the relegation zone. Nevertheless, Sampdoria’s showings have been pretty wretched of late and the team are on a six-game winless run in the competition ahead of the clash against Fiorentina this weekend. The lack of motivation is evident in Delio Rossi’s side as they have nothing to play for with five games to spare. Sampdoria have defeated the likes of Roma and Juventus this season, but considering that the team have suffered a huge dip in form of late, everything but the away win would be a major surprise at Luigi Ferraris. This defeat should not hurt la Samp too much, therefore, there is a big value in betting on the visitors this weekend.
