Sampdoria vs Sassuolo
Italian Serie A
Date: 26 May 2023, Friday
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris (Genova).

Top-flight football will be played at Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris next season but not with Sampdoria on the pitch.

Le Samp have had a dreadful campaign in this term of Serie A and will be forced to play in the second division next year.

To make things worse, their bitter city rivals Genoa have secured the promotion and the immediate return to the elite class.

Le Samp will play their last home match in Serie A for at least a year on Friday evening when they open Gameweek No 37 against Sassuolo.

The team led by Dejan Stankovic suffered yet another painful defeat last Saturday when they fell 5-1 at the hands of AC Milan.

They are winless in nine straight league matches and they’ll go into this off the back of four losses and a draw in the last five affairs in the process.

Le Samp have allowed at least five goals in two of the previous five games in the league. This will be music to the ears of Domenico Berardi who will be looking to add to his fine 10-goal tally for Sassuolo this season.

Berardi was on target seven days ago as well when he gave his team the lead in a disappointing 1-2 defeat to Monza in Reggio nell’Emilia.

Sassuolo are also winless in four straight outings and they have lost four ties on the spin away from home.

Sampdoria vs Sassuolo Head-to-head

  • Sampdoria will go into this encouraged by back-to-back wins in the previous two clashes against I Neroverdi.
  • The draw has been the most frequent of the outcomes in recent history of H2H ties between these rivals, happening on 9 occasions in the last 23 outings.
  • Both teams scored just once in the previous four head to head meetings.

Sampdoria vs Sassuolo Prediction

Neither outfit will enter the tie in high spirits but Sampdoria’s level of performances in the last couple of months has been particularly low. Sassuolo possess enough quality to threaten the leaky Samp back line and we see the value in backing the away win pick at the 1.90 odds.

The Over 2.5 goals FT pick is another well-worth-backing option at the 1.66 odds knowing how poor both sides have been defensively of late.

Sampdoria vs Sassuolo Betting Tips

  • Sassuolo to win @ 1.90 (9/10)
  • Over 2.5 goals @ 1.66 (4/6) odd.
