Didn't too many saves to make, but could have organised the defence better in the opening stages.
A bit flat and was hooked early in the second half.
Very slow in reading the game as he struggled to cope with Fiorentina in the early part of the match.
Where was he when Marchionni headed in? But made up for that error with a stunning free kick.
Vargas got by him too many times and the cross for Fiorentina's goal came from his flank.
His distribution was poor but he did try to calm Samp down as it seemed the frustration was getting to his team mates.
A bit lightweight at times, but got a few crossed in which caused problems.
Didn't seem to know his job in the midfield, was he protecting the defence or aiding the attack? He left Ljacic with too much space in the opening exchanges.
Some good direct running at times but ultimately disappointed and was hooked at the break.
Worked hard up front and had a few shots and had a header magnificently saved.
Fairly quiet afternoon for Cassano but he proved to be the hero once more as his goal gave Samp 3 points.
Amazing save from Pazzini header. Nearly won the game for his side.
A threat down the left, his cross led to the goal and went close with a free kick before going off injured.
Left lots of space in behind which Samp expoited and was hooked in the second half.
Misjudged a number of headers and looked unsure of himself.
Contended well with twin threat of Sampdoria, but a bit lacking in movement.
Wasn't largely troubled but on the odd occasion he was tested he failed.
Did surprisingly well considering he was played in centre of midfield. Usually a right winger.
Decent down the right, but faded in the second half as Fiorentina retreated into their own half.
Some nice passing in midfield. He kept La Viola ticking over for the most part.
The creator for Fiorentina. Injected pace into their attacks and was always in space looking to receive the ball.
Slow sluggish and lacking in movement.
- 1 Angelo Da Costa
Didn't have much to do as Fiorentina sat on thier lead for most of the second half.
- 16 A. Poli
Some good movement from the midfielder but his crossing needs work.
- 4 D. Dessena
- 9 N. Pozzi
Came on with ten minutes left and grabbed an assist. Nice work.
- 84 A. Boruc
Didn't make as much impact as the man he replaced but caused problems in the first half with his running.
An improvement on Gulan but he was very rash in his tackling.
- 29 L. De Silvestri
- 2 P. Krøldrup
Was largely ineffective when he came on.
- 9 K. Babacar
