Needing a win to confirm their safety in Serie A, 16th-placed Sampdoria play host to Fiorentina at the Luigi Ferraris Stadium on Monday.
The visitors, meanwhile, will head into the game seeking to complete a league double over the Blucerchiati and move into the automatic Conference League qualification place.
Sampdoria failed to pull clear of the relegation zone last Saturday as they fell to a 2-0 defeat away to Lazio.
They have now managed just one win from their last six outings, picking up one draw and losing four games in that time.
With 33 points from 36 games, Sampdoria are currently 16th in the Serie A table, four points above Cagliari in the relegation zone with two games to go.
Elsewhere, Fiorentina staked their claim for a place in next season’s Conference League as they picked up an impressive 2-0 win over AS Roma.
Prior to that, they were on a four-game losing streak across all competitions, including a 2-0 loss to Juventus in the Coppa Italia semi-finals.
With 59 points from 36 games, Fiorentina are currently eighth in the league table, three points off fifth-placed Lazio in the first automatic Conference League qualification spot.
Sampdoria vs Fiorentina Head-To-Head
