The Blucerchiati came into the match with their safety already a guarantee when arch-rivals Genoa confirmed their relegated status recently. Meanwhile, Viola came into the match with a Europa League spot within their reach but was without Gaetano Castrovilli and suspended Sofian Amrabat for the matchup.
Sampdoria ultimately took an early lead with Alex Ferrari’s smart use of skills to guide Antonio Candreva’s free-kick into the unmarked net. Nico Gonzalez and Candreva then tested Pietro Terracciano before Samp doubled their lead. Later in the second half, Fiorentina might have enjoyed more possession but did not do it justice instead went down by 3-0 with Morten Thorsby’s goal and Abdelhamid Sabiri grabbed the fourth one before Nico Gonzalez came back to convert a late penalty for the side to end with 4-1.
