Sampdoria vs Roma
Italian Serie A
Date: Saturday, 6 April 2019
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK / 20:30 CET
Venue: Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris (Genova).
Sampdoria and Roma will close a very interesting day in Serie A with their super important clash on Saturday evening at Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris. Both teams want to forget their respective mid-week slip-us in search for points required for a place in European competitions next season.
Le Samp ended a two-win thread with a disappointing 2-1 defeat at the hands of Torino. They are now three points below Saturday’s counterparts and a win here would move them lock on points with Giallorossi at 7th place of the Serie A standings.
Roma have much higher ambitions and anything but a top-four finish would be a massive disaster for a team which featured Champions League semi-final last season. Giallorossi made a managerial change appointing Claudio Ranieri over Eusebio Di Francesco recently, but the former Leicester City coach failed to make an impact as the team continued to struggle at both ends.
Sampdoria vs Roma: Head-to-head
Roma lead the head to head tie by nine wins coming into 46th meeting with Le Samp.
Giallorossi claimed a demolishing 4-1 victory when they played Sampdoria in the first part of the season at Stadio Olimpico.
Six of last eight head to head clashes saw three or more goals scored.
Sampdoria vs Roma: Prediction
We could be in for goals on Saturday evening as both teams fancy attacking-minded football and are at the same time super vulnerable at the back. The hosts shipped two or more goals in three of last four league games, while Roma did so in six of past seven matches across competitions.
Sampdoria play incomparably better in front of the home crowd where they won 8, drew 2 and lost 4 of 14 matches so far in the season. Their forward Fabio Quagliarella notched 21 goals in this term of Serie A and he should have plenty of room to add to this phenomenal tally here against the vulnerable defense of Roma’s.
Sampdoria vs Roma: Bet Tips
Over 2.5 goals FT & BTTS @ 1.95 (19/20)
Fabio Quagliarella to score anytime @ 1.90 (9/10).
