Sampdoria vs Frosinone
Italian Serie A
Date: Sunday, 10 February 2019
Kick-Off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris (Genova).
Sampdoria were expected to offer a much stronger resistance to Napoli last weekend as they travelled to San Paolo off the back of a demolishing 4-0 victory over Udinese.
However, they failed to make an impact against the second-placed outfit falling 3-0 on the road. They are thus five points short of 4th-placed Lazio and need a victory against relegation strugglers Frosinone on Sunday to keep the Champions League dream alive.
It’s an ideal fixture for Le Samp to rebound given their counterparts have really been struggling to stay competitive against top-half sides throughout the entire season.
Canarini took advantage of an extra man on the pitch two weeks ago when they claimed a massive 0-4 victory over Bologna away at Stadio Renato Dall’Ara. However, they quickly returned to the old habits failing to do much to avoid a 0-1 home loss to Lazio on Monday evening.
Sampdoria vs Frosinone: Head-to-head
Sampdoria will be looking to build on a huge 0-5 victory over Frosinone when teams met each other in the first part of the season at Stadio Benito Stirpe.
Le Samp won two and lost one of three head to head encounters with Canarini.
None of teams’ three H2H meetings produced goals at both ends.
Sampdoria vs Frosinone: Prediction
The team led by Marco Giampaolo generally played much better in front of the home crowd so far in the season. Sampdoria won 6, drew 2 and lost 2 of 10 home outings in the league. They will head into this on the back of a splendid run of four straight league wins at Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris. Le Samp allowed just one goal in the process.
Given Frosinone sit second from bottom in the league ladder and given they failed to score a single goal in four of last five league affairs, the home win to nil has to be the way to go here.
