Roma vs Sampdoria
Italy – Serie A
Date: Wednesday, 24 June 2020
Kick-off at 20:45 UK/ 21:45 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico.
La Lupa are one amongst the titans of Italy, and as of now, they are just below the cut-off for a Champions League ticket. With just a handful of games remaining for the end of the season, the team will surely be going after a spot in the top-four.
It helps that they are taking on Claudio Ranieri’s men this match-day, considering that they are just one point above the relegation cut-off as of now. Despite the arrival of such a renowned manager, the squad has failed to rise up to the expectations of their fans.
Moreover, La Lupa have a great h2h record against this opponent, and particularly so at this venue. Considering these stats, it’s expected that Roma will be registering a win this Wednesday at the Stadio Olimpico.
Roma vs Sampdoria: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Eight of the past twelve wins had gone to La Lupa.
- Ranieri’s men have not scored in the last two games.
- It’s been two years since La Lupa have lost against this opponent.
- 14 of the preceding 17 wins at this venue had gone to the hosts.
- The hosts scored two or more goals in four of the prior five clashes at this ground.
Roma vs Sampdoria: Prediction
La Lupa recorded a 3-4 win on the road the last match-day, against Cagliari. The hosts had scored the first goal of the game, but La Lupa managed to turn the fixture around with some astounding game play.
In the meantime, Ranieri’s men lost 2-1 on the road against Inter the past match-day. The home team right away brought the game under their control, and did not allow the guests any space to make a comeback.
As things stand, La Lupa easily have the upper hand. They have been one of the best teams in the country for a long time, and as of now, they are going after a CL spot, and are placed in the top tier as well.
On the other hand, Ranieri’s men are hanging by a thread over the relegation cut-off. Moreover, La Lupa had recorded eight of the former twelve h2h wins, and 14 of the past 17 at this venue as well. In fact, in the prior 24 years, the guests have won just thrice at this stadium.
Considering these stats, it’s assumed that Roma are on course to post a win this Wednesday.
