Sampdoria vs Parma: Prediction
Sampdoria’s four-game unbeaten spell came to an end as they suffered a dramatic 3-4 loss away to Cagliari. A defeat vs fourth-placed team should not derail them from their path towards midtable safety.
The 17th-placed Samp have claimed 9 points from 7 games since ‘Tinker man’ took over. In comparison, Eusebio Di Francesco logged one win and six defeats during his short tenure.
The Blucerchiati have recorded two wins, three draws at two defeats at Luigi Ferraris with a goal difference of 5:8, averaging 0.71 goals scored per match and conceding 1.14. They have beaten Udinese 2-1 in their latest home fixture.
Barreto, Bonazzoli, Bereszyinski, Depaoli and Bertolacci are on the sidelines for the hosts.
Parma come into this game on the back of a 2-1 victory over Frosinone in the Coppa Italia. Prior to that, they fell to a late defeat to AC Milan at Ennio Tardini. The Gialloblu’s were shockingly bad in that one as they recorded zero shots on target and let Rossoneri control the tempo of the game. With the win-draw-loss record of 5-3-6, Parma are sitting at 8th position on the ladder.
‘I Crociati’ have one win, three draws and two defeats away from home. They are scoring 1.33 goals per game, whilst allowing 1.50. Roberto D’Aversa’s side have played out three stalemates in a row on their travels.
Grasi, Inglese and Karamoh will be evaluated before the game. There are no suspensions in the team.
Sampdoria are on the rise and I’m confident they will continue to improve.
I was thinking of backing them in DNB market, but odds are rather low, so I’ll go for the hosts to net two or more on Sunday as I have 2-1 hunch and recent head-to-head strongly favors that pick.
It would be foolish to ignore Parma results on the road. They have deadly counter attacks and their target-man Andreas Cornelius came back from an injury that forced him to miss Derby dell’Emilia clash vs Bologna.
