FLORENCE – Fiorentina-Sampdoria in the name of Fabio Quagliarella. The Sampdoria striker , at 35, has scored ten consecutive games: the record of 11 races in a row, made in 1994-95 by Gabriel Batistuta in Fiorentina, is within reach. Thanks to this double, Fabio Quagliarella hooked Cristiano Ronaldo of Juventus and Duvan Zapata of Atalanta top of the Serie A scorers. Fabio Quagliarella has reached 141 goals in Serie A and travels at an enviable average of 0.74 goals per game.
Fiorentina-Sampdoria 3-3, Muriel replied to a stellar Quagliarella
Goals and emotions to the last to the Franks between Fiorentina and Sampdoria ended 3-3 after the double advantage of the viola who played for almost an hour in 10 against 11, the comeback and the Dorian overtaking and then, at 93 ', the pazzata Pezzella that, however, avoided a defeat that would have weighed on the race to Europe. Matters Muriel and Quagliarella, authors of a shotgun each in a match marked by a controversial direction and a lot of nervousness especially in the final. Both former, the Colombian at the first purple league in the league, has unlocked the race in the first half with a network of film libraries and, in 10 against 11, after the penalty of the momentary 1-1 signed by Ramirez, has brought forward Fiorentina half-way through another goal by applause.
The Dorian captain, in the shade for a good part of the race, was decisive from the 36th minute of the second half when he scored the penalty for a naive hand ball by Vitor Hugo (just before the red risk on Saponara) and 4 'after when Pezzella and Milenkovic have been mocked: tenth race always scored (11 goals) for captain Quagliarella who against Udinese, in the next round, can aspire to equal Batistuta's record. The Fiorentina has passed with merit shortly after half an hour with the most anticipated ex, Luis Muriel: the Colombian, two seasons at Samp from 2015 to 2017 before moving to Seville, he left the ball and the foot after having skipped Tonelli and Andersen overcame Audero with a precise left.
The attacker, unlike what Quagliarella will do later, has not cheered out of respect for his former team. The advantage came after at least three occasions marked by Chiesa and Simeone, the result of a better performance than Sampdoria designed by Giampaolo with Ramirez midfielder, Jankto instead of Linetty and Caprari partner of Quagliarella, while the new acquisition Gabbiadini entered only in the final. The joy for the advantage, however, did not last long for the Viola, who remained in the 39th minute because of the naïve expulsion of Edimilson Fernandes, who was cautioned for a foul on Ramirez in midfield.
The Samp, until then never really dangerous, has accelerated to find a draw succeeding before the interval with Ramirez on a free kick very challenged by Fiorentina: contact Veretout-Ekdal seemed doubtful and the same Ramirez had risked shortly before the second yellow, it is no coincidence that Giampaolo replaced him at the beginning of a recovery from strong hearts. And it is no coincidence that with the release of Muriel acclaimed by its new fans Fiorentina has risked losing a game played much better than Samp despite the eternal goleador Quagliarella.
