Giampaolo: “We’re going to Florence to win”

Marco Giampaolo believes Sampdoria can match Fiorentina when the two sides face off in the Coppa Italia last 16, despite the added difficulty of playing away for the first time in the competition this season.

The Blucerchiati beat Foggia and Pescara at the Marassi in the previous rounds and are now set to do battle with Stefano Pioli’s side at the Stadio Franchi at 17:30 CET on Wednesday.

The coach stressed that he will put out his best side for the game, taking into account the overall fitness of his players and squad.

“We want to do well in the Coppa Italia even though the current format makes it hard,” he said in an exclusive interview with Samp TV. “We’ll respect the competition as we always have while bearing in mind our players’ fitness and form.

“Fiorentina are coming off the back of a couple of excellent results because they played really well against Lazio and Napoli, but we’ll certainly give them a game.”
