Sampdoria vs Bologna
Italy Serie A
Date: Sunday, 22 November 2020
Kick-Off at 14.00 UK
Venue: Luigi Ferraris Stadium, Genoa.
Sampdoria haven’t been able to build on a great streak we’ve seen in October and earned just a point in their last two games, hosting Bologna desperate to bounce to the winning ways once again.
La Samp sit just three points behind the top 5 and they’ll hope to challenge the spots as early as this weekend, despite struggles for consistency.
Bologna, on the other hand, saw Napoli snatch all three points in a 0-1 loss last time out. They beat Reggina (2-0 in Coppa Italia) and Cagliari (3-2) beforehand but now have to look for a way back to the winning ways once again, where a trip to Luigi Ferraris Stadium hardly feels like the best place to do so.
The visitors have struggled to perform on the road and saw three losses in three away games this term.
Sinisa Mihajlovic will want more from his men and we do expect a tough challenge now, but Sampdoria should be able to outgun them and secure the points. They proved character here since mid-October and we should be in for more of the same now.

Sampdoria vs Bologna Prediction
We will now back Sampdoria to end the unwanted streak against Bologna and secure all three points, where a Home win comes at 2.45. They have been solid at this ground over the past month and we feel they have what it takes to outgun the rivals in what feels like a high-scoring contest in the making.
Bologna have been scoring goals and there should certainly be open spaces to explore in the final third on the day as well.
We thus hope to see another exciting head-to-head clash and we’re backing it by going for Over 2.5 Goals FT and a YES on Both teams to score at 1.90. I may summarize by writing that we are used to such games between the sides lately and we should see more.
