Sampdoria vs Atalanta
Italy – Serie A
Date: Saturday, 13 August 2022
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Stadio Luigi Ferraris.

Sampdoria were one of the weakest teams in the Italian top flight the last season and had secured a finish close to the relegation cut off. Meanwhile Atlanta have always been one of the best in this league and despite the insane competitive nature of the Serie A in the last few years, they managed to finish eighth in the table.

However, their target was a top-7 finish, in order to qualify for one of the European competitions and they missed out on it by just 3 points. This definitely was a costly miss for them and they will be determined to make amends.

It is important for them that they start their campaign on a winning note. Their strength has always been their offense and it has been a regular occurrence in the league that they will be amongst the teams that had scored the most number of goals at the end of the season.

Meanwhile, Sampdoria had finished 15th in a table of 20 the last season and they had a surplus of 6 points over the relegation cut-off. They had remained winless in 28 of their past 38 overall fixtures and at the end of the campaign they had a -17 goal difference as well.

Moreover, they also have a dominant head-to-head record against this opponent, and taking into account these observations, it is expected that we are about to witness a victory for Atalanta this weekend.
