Sampdoria vs Roma
Italy Serie A
Date: Sunday, 2 May 2021
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris, Genova.
Sampdoria and Roma will take on each other in the clash that will by no means affect the Serie A standings at the end of the season in a significant way.
The La Lupa gave up the battle for the top-four finish a while ago. They shifted the focus entirely towards going all the way in Europa League.
Since the trip to Genova comes amid two Europa League semi-final legs against Manchester United, we expect Paulo Fonseca to practically send a reserve line-up to Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris on Sunday evening.
Sampdoria do not have much but pride to play for in the remaining five games either, but they will at least field the best they have for this match.
Also, Le Samp have a nice chance to end the season in the top half of the standings which can be regarded a success for the team led by Claudio Ranieri.
Sampdoria vs Roma Head-to-head
- Sampdoria will be additionally motivated to improve a dismal head to head record against La Lupa.
- Roma won four and drew one of the last five outings against Le Samp who have scored no more than two goals in the process.
- The Romans celebrated a narrow 1-0 victory when the two outfits met each other at the start of the year in the capital.
Sampdoria vs Roma Prediction
Le Samp will enter the game in much higher spirits despite falling 1-0 at Sassuolo last time out. Ranieri’s troops won two of the last three league fixtures. They have been relatively tough to break down lately, conceding only one goal in the last two Serie A matches.
The same is not true for Roma who shipped at least two goals in each of the last four away matches in the competition.
La Lupa allowed three goals in each of the last two away losses to two relegation-threatened teams Torino (3-1) and Cagliari (3-2).
Based on everything written above, the home win is by far the best betting option you can take for this match. It is priced up at attractive 2.80 odds.
We will alternatively back Sampdoria to score two or more goals at the odds of 2.10.
