The Italian Champions Juventus will host Sampdoria at home on Friday 14th May 2016 in the Serie A final match week fixture.
The Old ladies coming to this game from a defeat away to Verona last weekend but that didn’t deter their crown as Italian Champions. A loose or win win this game will change nothing on the part of the Old Ladies as they prepare for a happy ending to this season’s campaign.
The Olds Ladies have 88 points from 37 games, they have lost just 5 games this Serie A campaign and won 28. They have conceded the least goals (20) this season and are the 3rd highest scoring team in the Serie A this season. Juve have won their last 15 home games and are on 17 games unbeaten run at home. Juve have also kept a clean sheet in their last 10 home games.
Sampdoria will enter this game from a huge 3-0 home defeat last week and are lucky to have escaped relegation, they are on 40 points, 5 points above the teams in relegation zone. They are currently having a poor run of form and have failed to win in their last 4 away games, they have lost 1 and drawn 3. They have failed to win 17 of their last 19 away games.

Juventus vs Sampdoria: Prediction
Juventus are the clear favorites in this game and have a big edge against the visitors, they have a superb record in the Serie A both home and away and they have an excellent record at home in the Serie A. I’m giving the home side 98% of my confidence to win this game and I’m expecting a huge win too. I’d say 2-0 win for the home side but it won’t be surprising if we see a 3-0 score line at the end of the game.
Also it might be risky but its attainable if you bet your money for the home team to win both halves and a clean sheet is likely to occur for the home team. (Over 1.5 goals already in the bag).
