Sampdoria vs Sassuolo
Italy Serie A
Date: Wednesday, 23 December 2020
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris, Genoa.
It seems like Roberto De Zerbi’s squad is on a big decline. Sassuolo are without a doubt one of the most pleasant surprise packages in Serie A this season, but they have collected only five points from the last five duels. That of course had a big impact on the standings, dropping to 6th place ahead of Wednesday’s duel versus Sampdoria in Genoa.
Hosts have recovered from poor performances in November, having won the last two divisional games. Interestingly, the odds on home and away victory at the moment are at very similar 2.60 and 2.55 rates. We are most likely going to witness a narrow contest with a lot of goals.
Sampdoria vs Sassuolo Head-to-head
The last head to head match between these teams ended without goals. However, two games before that were pure joy for football fans. Results were 4-1 in favour of Sassuolo and 5-3 in favour of Sampdoria.
There was total of 18 games where they locked horns so far, and squad from Genoa has small 6-4 advantage in terms of victories.
24 goals were scored in 9 encounters in Reggio Emilia, which averages 2.66 per duel.
Sampdoria vs Sassuolo Prediction
Francesco Caputo was the key man for Sassuolo in opening months, but that role was taken by Domenico Berardi in the last couple of weeks. This 26-years old striker bagged six goals in 12 appearances, so Sampdoria’s defenders should definitely pay some extra attention on Wednesday night. Sassuolo were defeated at home last weekend 1-2 by table leaders AC Milan, conceding the first goal after only seven seconds of play.
Sampdoria defeated Hellas Verona and Crotone in the last two rounds with total goal difference of 5-2. All five goals were scored by different players. Six points got them up to the 10th place, but still far away from a spot for Europa League. Both sides have very decent stats in terms of efficiency lately, so we see BTTS pick as big banker bet.
