Sampdoria vs Genoa: Preview and Prediction

Sampdoria vs Genoa-Italian Serie A-7th April 2018-LeagueLane Predictions

Sampdoria vs Genoa
Italian Serie A.
Date: Saturday, 7 April 2018
Kick-Off: 19:45 UK,
Venue: Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris (Genoa).

Sampdoria earned a much needed win against Atalanta on Tuesday, which helped them end their three game losing streak ahead of the Derby della Lanterna this weekend. They naturally will want to make sure they can continue their push for a Europa League spot, as their losing streak has seen them tumble down the standings as of late.

As such, they will want nothing but to pick up all three points here against cross-town rivals Genoa. The Grifone, however, also come into this game off the back of a win and sit in 12th place. Still, they have mostly been fighting the drop all campaign and their uptick in form is only a recent thing. In essence, they will be the designated “away” team for this contest, whilst Samp will be the “home” side – and Sampdoria have built their decent campaign on their strong home form.

Will that help them psychologically, though? Genoa have won just one of their last five games, losing the other three and drawing one. The win against Cagliari will be a boost, but at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris, they have lost eight of their 15 games here. Sampdoria, meanwhile have won four of the last five clashes between themselves and Genoa, and have no problems generally scoring at home.

Sampdoria vs Genoa: Prediction

Sampdoria have lost just three of their 15 home games this season, and two of them were against teams in the top five. Genoa, meanwhile have struggled at home and only avoided defeat in two of their nine fixtures against teams who are higher than them in the table. That being said, they’re playing in a derby and did pick up all three points at this ground recently. The Grifone could potentially nick a point here.
