Sampdoria vs Crotone
Italy Serie A
Date: Saturday, 19 December 2020
Kick-Off at 17.00 UK
Venue: Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris, Genoa.
Sampdoria have finally ended awful winless streak which lasted for seven games straight across all competitions. They surprisingly returned with all three points from a Serie A clash against Hellas Verona last weekend, winning the match thanks to the goals of Ekdal and Verre. Squad is currently sitting in the middle of the table and hoping to continue progressing after upcoming fixture against Crotone.
Their opponents are currently hammered to the bottom of the table after gathering only six points from 12 games, and having the worst goal difference in the league of -15. However, the form in the last two weeks improved drastically, managing to beat Spezia and to snatch a point from Dacia Arena against Udinese.

Sampdoria vs Crotone Prediction
Led by famous head manager Claudio Ranieri, Sampdoria and their fans are having high expectations from this season. The initial goal was to compete for Europa League spots, but considering how crowded the top six positions at the moment are, that’s hardly going to happen.
A lot of weight has been carried out by a veteran and club’s legend Fabio Quagliarella who scored five goals so far. Ranieri’s boys should improve stats at this stadium. So far they have one win, one draw and three losses. Defensive line should also reduce number of conceded goals (20 in 12 games).
Crotone are doing even worse in this segment, having the second weakest defense in the league which conceded 25 goals.
In our opinion, they are going to be candidate number one to suffer relegation this season. We are tipping home win with big confidence here, as well as Over 2.5 option for goals market.
