Sampdoria vs Chievo
Italy – Serie A
Date: Wednesday, 26 December 2018
Kick-Off at 14:00 UK
Venue: Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris (Genoa).
In the 18th round of Italian Serie A, Sampdoria are going to face Chievo on Wednesday afternoon.
Home side is enjoying a positive streak as they haven’t lost in the last four rounds. That run helped them to remain competitive in the battle for one of the places in Europa League next season as they are just a point behind Atalanta. Experienced striker Favio Quagliarella is driving his team in the front, while their defence is doing a pretty good job. Although they’ve lost two matches at home ground, Sampdoria managed to win twice in a row when playing in front of the home crowd.
Chievo are having a very disappointing campaign as they are still searching for their first victory in the season. They are hammered to the bottom of the table having just four points at their account due to three-point deduction by the Italian FA. However, Domenico Di Carlo’s side haven’t lost five times in a row and they’ve snatched five points during that period. If they want to keep their chances of remaining in the top flight, the visitors need to find the winning formula as soon as possible and improve their finishing.
Sampdoria vs Chievo: Head-to-head
Both sides have been equally successful in their head to head clashes lately as they managed to celebrate two wins each in the last five encounters. Their clashes are also pretty efficient, and the crowd was able to enjoy goals in both nets in the last four occasions.
Sampdoria vs Chievo: Prediction
Sampdoria are in a very good momentum and they are looking forward to continuing their unbeatable streak. The hosts are favourites in this one and they should be able to book another three points I their battle for the top six.
Although their head to head clashes have been a joy to watch in terms of total goals scored, the visitors have severe troubles in converting their chances into goals. Since home side is not so easy to crack, we believe they should be able to keep the clean sheet.
