Sampdoria vs Juventus: Prediction

Sampdoria bounced back from two consecutive league defeats with a narrow victory over local rivals, Genoa. In a rather uneventful Derby della Lanterna with just 7 shots between the two teams, super-sub Manolo Gabbadini scored the sole goal and the winner.

With the W-D-L record of 4-3-9, the Blucerchiati are now 16th on the ladder, two points above the pit. They will be hoping to upset the champions before the mid-season break.

Claudio Ranieri’s side have recorded two wins, two draws and three defeats at Luigi Ferraris this season, scoring 0.63 goals per game and allowing 1.13 per tie.

Barreto, Bertolacci, Jankto, Bonazzoli and Bereszynski are on the sidelines for the hosts; Viera is suspended.

The Bianconeri, as expected, eased past Udinese 3-1 and made amends for disappointing results against Sassuolo (2-2) at home and Lazio (1-3) on the road. The Zebrette were unable to contain hungry and attacking-minded Juventus with deadly trident (Ronaldo, Dybala, Higuain) up-front.

With 39pts to their name, Juve are tied at the top of the table with the Nerazzurri, Milan-based outfit are only ahead because of goal difference.

Juventus have logged five wins, two draws and one loss on their Serie A travels, averaging 1.38 goals scored per bout, whilst conceding 0.88.

Khedira and Chiellini are long-term absentees and Ramsey is questionable for the tip, but Cuadrado and Pjanic are back in the mix after serving one-match bans.

The visitors are favorites to land another win before they take a trip to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, to face Lazio in the Supercoppa.

After their positive performance against Udinese, I’m inclined to back them to score over 1.5 goals on Wednesday.

Even though Sampdoria have underwhelming goalscoring record at home, I’m confident they can find the back of the net here here – Juventus have shipped six goals in last three league matches and the hosts bagged five in last two home games vs Turin giants.

With a 1-2, 1-3 hunch, I’m going with goals instead of plain away win.

Sampdoria vs Juventus: Betting Tips

  • Juventus to score over 1.5 goals @ 1.66
