Sampdoria vs Juventus
Italian Serie A
Date: Sunday, 26 May 2019
Kick-Off 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris (Genova).
Sampdoria saw their form take a big turn after promising results in the first part of the season.
They go into the last round tie against champions Juventus winless in past five league games.
Le Samp lost five, drew two and won just one of last eight, a streak which saw them give up the battle for European places much earlier than expected.
Marco Giampaolo struggled to motivate his lads to keep things quiet at the back in recent weeks.
Le Samp allowed two or more goals in four successive matches before a goalless draw to rock-bottomed Chievo seven days ago.
The team shipped at least three goals in three of these four games in the process which is certainly not the kind of form you want to have coming face to face with the champions.
Sampdoria vs Juventus: Head-to-head
Juve were the dominant force in the history of this match-up.
Bianconeri won seven of past eight meetings with Sampdoria, the only defeat coming just in the previous visit to Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris (3-2).
Three or more goals were seen in six of last seven head to head ties between the two sides, including this term’s 2-1 victory for the Old Lady.
Sampdoria vs Juventus: Prediction
Juve have not been enjoying a much better shape lately either. Their slower run was also caused by the lack of motivation as Bianconeri have already secured another title more than a month ago with a 2-1 victory at home against Fiorentina.
It was also the only win in past eight games in all competitions for Cristiano Ronaldo & company.
This will also be the last match in charge for Massimiliano Allegri whose five-year reign comes to and after this season.
Will players find the way to seal the victory on his farewell? They might just get one knowing about Sampdoria’s dreadful form.
Juventus to score two or more goals is the best pick for this tie based on everything written above.
