“We responded very well to falling behind, particularly as we were playing well," Sampdoria star Albin Ekdal said as he reacted to their win over Verona. 
"We could’ve scored twice in the first half, but didn’t take our chances. We were still convinced that we could win and we managed it in the end. I’m pleased about the goal. 
"I dedicate this special goal to my girlfriend Camilla, who’s celebrating her birthday today. We want to keep it up. We’re on the right path. I feel good physically and when that’s the case, I can give my best because I play such a physical game," he added.
"I’m convinced we can do well in Florence as well, where we won last year. It’s a shame I can’t be involved, but my target now is to get myself ready for Lazio.”
While Lazio were hammered 4-0 by SS Napoli in their last away game in Serie A which took place on November 28. 
The Eagles are now winless in their last five matches on the road having registered two draws and three defeats.
