Sampdoria Prediction

Sampdoria have dropped down to a disappointing 10th place on the Serie A league ladder following a spate of defeats which have seen the hosts now occupy a mid-table position and they find themselves five points adrift of 6th placed Lazio as they prepare for the visit of Cagliari this Sunday.

Recent defeats to Napoli, Frosinone and Inter Milan have really pegged Sampdoria back from making a serious challenge for a Europa League spot, but this can change if they take all three points in this encounter.

Sampdoria still possess a reasonable looking record at their Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris in Genova with stats of 6-2-3 19/9 which includes winning four of their last five on home turf with wins against Bologna, Parma, Chievo and Udinese, as well as keeping five clean sheets to date in their own backyard.

Forwards Quagliarella (16 goals), Defrel (6 goals) and Caprari (5 goals) look the most likely to score anytime for the hosts who desperately need a win to kick-start their Europa ambitions.


Key-Facts – Sampdoria v Cagliari

  • Sampdoria have lost their last 3 matches on the trot in Serie A
  • Sampdoria have won 4 of their last 5 home matches in Serie A
  • Cagliari have won just 2 of their last 14 matches overall in Serie A


Cagliari Prediction

Cagliari sit in 14th place in Serie A but have lifted themselves away from the bottom three with a recent 2-1 home win against Parma which has now placed Cagliari six points ahead of the relegation zone ahead of their trip to face Sampdoria this Sunday.

The visitors will certainly feel much better about themselves having ended a worrying five match sequence without a win, a run that included defeats to Udinese, Sassuolo, Atalanta and AC Milan. The fact remains though, that wins have been few and far between for Cagliari this term as the visitors have managed to record just two victories out of their last 14 matches overall in Serie A.

Cagliari’s situation doesn’t get much better when looking at their results away from home as the visitors have lost their last four on the trot on the road at Lazio, Udinese, Sassuolo and AC Milan along with scoring just 1 goal, but conceding a total of 11 goals against them.

Their away record of 1-3-8 7/24 underlines the problems they’ve had in trying to accrue points on their travels with a lack of goals really hampering their progress; indeed, the visitors have failed to score in 6 of their 12 away matches to date.

Betting Tips Verdict

Sampdoria have stalled at just the wrong moment but in view of Cagliari’s ordinary away record and lack of goals on the road, this looks like an ideal opportunity for the hosts to bounce back here.
