Team News: Sampdoria
Sebastian Giovinco (Calf Injury), Stefano Sensi (Tear in the abductor muscle) and Manolo Gabbiadini (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be available for Sampdoria gaffer Marco Giampaolo.
In our view, i Blucerchiati look set to line up in a 4-1-4-1 system for the game, handing starts to Emil Audero, Bartosz Bereszynski, Alex Ferrari, Omar Colley, Tommaso Augello, Ronaldo Vieira, Antonio Candreva, Tomas Rincon, Morten Thorsby, Abdelhamid Sabiri and Francesco Caputo.
Team News: Fiorentina
Fiorentina manager Vincenzo Italiano has to currently contend with reduced team options. Riccardo Sottil (Muscle Fatigue) and Gaetano Castrovilli (Knee Surgery) can’t be considered. Sofyan Amrabat is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
It’s our belief that La Viola will likely make use of a 4-3-3 formation using Pietro Terracciano, Lorenzo Venuti, Nikola Milenkovic, Igor, Cristiano Biraghi, Giacomo Bonaventura, Lucas Torreira, Alfred Duncan, Jonathan Ikone, Arthur Cabral and Nicolas Gonzalez.
We’re of the opinion that Sampdoria may find it difficult to hit the back of the net against this Fiorentina outfit who will likely emerge victorious.
That’s why our selection here is for a very competitive game with a 0-1 victory for Fiorentina at the end of the match.
It should be a good one.
