Match preview

Which fallen giant will keep their Coppa Italia dreams alive?

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.

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.

Whoever does advance will hosts A.C. Milan or Torino in the quarter-finals.
