Sampdoria vs Fiorentina Prediction 21 January 2018

Tournament: Italian Serie A
Location: Luigi Ferraris Stadium
Match date: 21.01.2018 at 14:00

On January 21 2018 at 14:00 at the Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris in Genova in the upcoming regular game of the 21st game week of the Italian Serie A the local Sampdoria are playing against their guests Fiorentina.

It’s surprising but Fiorentina are considered to be the favorites of the upcoming match by the bookmakers even though they are lower in the standings and they aren’t playing at home this time. It’s an opinion we may argue as Luigi Ferraris isn’t the stadium where the visitors can feel good. Sampdoria won 7 of their 9 home games played. Even Juventus, Atlanta and Milan lost their matches in Genova. Sampdoria were also really strong in the home matches in the previous season.

Moreover Fiorentina, as they are now, aren’t strong competitors at all. They only won twice in their latest ten matches and they did it in the matches against the teams from the bottom of the table who were Cagliari and Sassuolo. They aren’t always very strong in their away matches as they only won three of their 10 away matches played. At the moment Fiorentina are on the 9th position in the standings of the national elite division with 28 points gained and they are just two points below Sampdoria. We must actually admit that Fiorentina will have two important players missing in the upcoming game who are their main center defender and their great center midfielder. Another fact we should remind you is that Fiorentina haven’t won a single game against the teams from the top eight.

Sampdoria slowed down a bit because they were tired and yet this time they had a lot of time to prepare. Sampdoria only lost one singe game against Fiorentina of four latest ones played at home. Moreover, Fiorentina lost their first round game against Sampdoria even though they played at home then. It seems to us that the hosts are very likely to avoid a loss this time.
