The Serie A season run in features battles at both ends of the table and these Sampdoria v Fiorentina predictions give the latest update on the race for Europe. Fiorentina are chasing down a place in Europe for next season with Sampdoria not yet safe from relegation.
Sampdoria vs. Fiorentina odds
1 – Fiorentina to win at – 1/1
2 – Under 2.5 total goals – 10/9
3 – Fiorentina under 1.5 total goals – 20/21
4 – BTTS – No – 13/10
5 – Fiorentina to win 1-0 at – 8/1
The battle to secure a place in European competition next season looks set to go all the way to the final day of the season. Inter’s win over Juventus in the Coppa Italia final has restored two Europa League spots and one place in the Europa Conference League.
Lazio look almost certain to seal one Europa League slot, with Fiorentina fighting against Atalanta and Roma, for the other one. Vincenzo Italiano’s side are likely to need maximum points from their final two games, starting at Sampdoria on May 16, but they head into the tie on the worst run of form of the season.
Fiorentina’s win against Roma last time out disrupted Jose Mourinho’s side and ended their four-game losing streak in league and cup action this month. However, with the stakes high, and Sampdoria only winning once in their last six Serie A outings, the visitors should have enough to edge out a crucial three points.
As their form has dropped off, Fiorentina have also scored to score goals, with just three goals in their last four games, and seven of their last ten league encounters featuring under 2.5 total goals scored inside 90 minutes.
Sampdoria’s record of 0.5 goals per game based on their last six league matches is not expected to cause too many problems for Italiano in the penultimate game of the campaign.
A narrow win for Fiorentina will push the race for Europe on into the final weekend of the season, with Fiorentina hosting Juventus in Florence, and a defeat could keep Sampdoria in Serie A if Cagliari and Genoa fail to win over the weekend.
