Preview: Serie A champions Inter Milan have made a blistering start to the defence of their hard-earned title, picking up maximum points through two rounds. Is there any hope that Sampdoria, without a goal scored so far, can halt the Nerazzurri momentum when hosting Simone Inzaghi’s side at Stade Luigi Ferrari?

Sampdoria – La Samp to rediscover scoring touch in Genoa?

For a team that finished last season superbly, with a ninth-place finish and 52 points a considerable improvement on their efforts the season before (15th and 42 points), a return of one point out of six in 2021-22 can only be described as disappointing. They are one of two sides without a goal, along with newly-promoted Venezia, firing blanks in a home loss to AC Milan (0-1) and the trip to Sassuolo (0-0).

Expect the goals to materialise soon though, possibly even this weekend. La Samp notched 32 times at Stadio Luigi Ferraris last term, the eight best home return in Serie A, scoring ten across the final four such fixtures (W3 D1) and at least twice in each. Against Inter they have scored in each of the last five, even halting a six-game losing sequence when prevailing 2-1 here in Genoa last season.

Key Stat: In the 2020-21 Serie A season, Sampdoria would only fail to score in three of 19 home matches (vs Atalanta, Juventus and Napoli), scoring two or more on eleven occasions.


Draw & Both To Score



Inter Milan – Inzaghi targeting early hat-trick?

New Nerrazzuri boss Simone Inzaghi can achieve something his predecessor couldn’t last time around, which is oversee three straight wins to start to the Serie A season. After five years in the Eternal City with Lazio, Inzaghi steps into the managerial hot seat of the defending champions having seen several stars depart over the summer, namely top scorer Romelu Lukaku and creative full-back Achraf Hakimi.

Anyone anticipating a bumpy transition have been left disappointed, though. Inter boast the full quota of points after winning the first two fixtures with something to spare, thrashing Genoa prior to winning 3-1 at Hellas Verona. The latter was much less convincing, however, requiring a late Joaquin Correa brace to get it done, and means both teams scored in six of their last eight away league games (W5 D2 L1).

Key Stat: Inter Milan haven’t led at half-time in any of their last five Serie A away matches (D2 L3 at half-time in these games), with seven of their nine goals in this sequence being scored in the second half.

Sampdoria Vs Inter Milan Betting Advice

It has been a contrasting start to the new league season in Italy from the teams in question. Sampdoria ended the previous campaign in terrific form, culminating in their fourth top-half finish across the past five seasons. Yet they haven’t really got going so far, failing to score whilst collecting one point out of six. Compare this to the seven goals and maximum points garnered by reigning champions Inter Milan.


Sampdoria Vs Inter Milan – Key Facts:

  • The home side on the day prevailed in last season’s Serie A meetings between the sides, with a 2-1 win for Sampdoria ending a run of six successive losses.
  • Sampdoria may not have managed a goal so far this season but can take heart from having scored at least twice in four of their past five Serie A home games.
  • Inter Milan haven’t encountered any trouble scoring thus far, netting seven in two wins. They may need those goals, though, having not kept a clean sheet in six of the last eight away league games.


Nevertheless, this promises to be an awkward assignment for last season’s table-toppers. Particularly as it falls day before a mammoth clash with Real Madrid in the Champions League. Despite their problems in front of goal early doors, Sampdoria boast an excellent scoring record, netting in all but four home league games since the start of last season. Moreover, six of Inter’s past eight away matches saw both teams net.
