- Both teams have found the back of the net together in their last six games on the trot.
- All of their previous ten matchups have featured over 2.5 goals on the charts.

Sampdoria vs Lecce Prediction
The hosts failed to break free from their dismal winless run last week and admitted to the seventh defeat of their campaign, against Bologna. Sampdoria are now without a win in their last five games, garnering no more than a point from a possible fifteen.
Subsequently, the home side have also hit rock bottom in the ladder with just four points to their name. Their counterparts for the weekend are on a two-match unbeaten run at the moment. The visitors managed to hold titans Juventus to a 1-1 draw in their last game at home, prior to which, they shared the spoils with AC Milan.
Be that as it may, Lecce are without a taste of success in their previous two trips on the road. It is also worth mentioning that the visitors have secured the bragging rights just twice in their last seven visits to this venue.
Furthermore, to Sampdoria’s defense, the hosts have been squaring up against fairly tough sides in their clashes at home so far. Unlike Lecce, three of their last four opponents are currently dwelling in the top half of the ladder.
Given the previous h2h outcomes and the fact that the only victory for the hosts so far have also come in the comforts of their home, Lecce are the underdogs to come out on top in this one.
Additionally, there has been no dearth of goals in their previous head to head meetings here. Six of their last seven clashes with each other at Stadio Luigi Ferraris have featured goals down each end. With Lecce scoring a goal or more in their previous four outings in a row as well, count on neither team to make it out of the ninety minutes with a clean sheet intact.
