Hosts Fiorentina have won this trophy on six occasions, although they’ve only featured in one final since most-recently doing so in 2001. I Viola finished seventh last season, their highest finish for six seasons, although another season of European qualification looks touch-and-go.
Vincenzo Italiano’s team are currently ninth, five points below the European spots, following Saturday’s last-gasp 2-1 victory over Sassuolo. Riccardo Saponara breaking the deadlock, before Nicolás González snatched the points with a stoppage time penalty.
Sampdoria, meanwhile, are in the relegation zone, six points from safety, having been beaten 2-0 by run-away league-leaders Napoli on Sunday. Dejan Stankovic’s team have only won two Serie A games all seasons, these coming against Cremonese in October and Sassuolo last mid-week.
In this competition, I Blucerchiati have overcome Reggina and Ascoli, the latter ending 9-8 penalties, with both goalkeepers taking spot-kicks. So, the four-times winners are on the cusp of reaching the quarter-finals for the first time since 2011.
Fiorentina though, having won 2-0 at Stadio Luigi Ferraris just 47 days ago, will be confident of a repeat at Stadio Artemio Franchi.
