Sampdoria vs Bologna
Italian Serie A
Date: 18 February 2023, Saturday
Kick-off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris (Genova).

Sampdoria earned a glimmer of hope down in the relegation battle by holding the likes of Inter Milan to a goalless draw on Monday night at Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris.

A stalemate against such a strong opposition was a massive result for Dejan Stankovic and his troops and it will no doubts represent a strong boost ahead of the second half of the season.

Le Samp are still winless on the home patch this season and they have a long way to go before reaching the safe zone which is currently eight points away.

Nevertheless, Saturday’s clash against Bologna does provide Dejan Stankovic and his squad a nice opportunity to finally make it count in front of their fans in Genova.

Bologna sit in the middle of the league standings and have nowhere to go in the second half of the season and it is fair to say this match carries a much greater significance for their rivals.

Bologna suffered a 0-1 home defeat at the hands of Monza last weekend. It was a match in which we did not see too many clear-cut openings on either end.

It was certainly a disappointing result for Thiago Motta’s squad who terminated a two-win streak on the occasion.

Sampdoria vs Bologna Head-to-head

  • Sampdoria will rely on tradition because they won 9, drew 3, and lost just 5 of the previous 17 home encounters with Bologna.
  • However, Bologna have completely dominated this matchup in the recent history with seven wins and a draw in the previous nine meetings with Le Samp.
  • We have seen goals at both ends in six of the previous seven head to head matches between these counterparts.

Sampdoria vs Bologna Prediction

This is one of the last trains to catch for Sampdoria in their battle for the top flight survival. The hosts need to take advantage of the momentum after a goalless draw to Inter Milan. Also, the fact Bologna have lost six of ten league games on travels this term will certainly help their cause.

We will back Sampdoria to win & Under 2.5 goals FT as the main bet at the odds of 5.50, while you can alternatively take the 1-0 correct score pick at the somewhat higher 8.50 odds.
