One of the games of the weekend will see Fiorentina play host to inform Sampdoria in Serie A. Sampdoria have won four in a row and are unbeaten in their last five. Under Mihajlovich Sampdoria have been excellent and their recent run of form has taken them to fourth in the table. Just two points seperate Sampdoria from Fiorentina and this is a great chance for Sampdoria to open that gap with a win. Led by Eder and recently signed veteran Samuel Eto Sampdoria will go to Fiorentina and play a counter attacking game. This tactic was terrific in Rome and Sampdoria came away with a victory. Sampdoria have a really good defence and will base their game around that.
Fiorentina have an excellent home record and havenet lost at home since losing 1-0 to Napoli back in November. Fiorentina have struggled a little of late with just two wins in their last five overall. Fiorentina are led by former Bayern Munich striker Mario Gomez, with Guiseppi Rossi out injured for the season Fiorentina have been looking for another player to lead the way and Mohamad Salah the recent loan signing from Chelsea has been that man. Fiorentina will surely have to make the move permanent given how excellent Salah has been since his arrival and he is quickly becoming a fan favourite of Fiorentina.
I'm taking the draw here, Sampdoria and Fiorentina are really well matched on paper and with Sampdoria's solid defence I think they can hold Fiorentina here. Depending on which team really goes out and attacks going for the win I think this could be a very lowscoring affair but the draw looks a lock to me.
