Sampdoria vs Spezia
Italian Serie A
Date: 22 April 2023, Saturday
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris (Genova).
Sampdoria play host to Spezia in the last game of Saturday’s Serie A program at Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris.
The hosts are one foot in the second tier of Italian football with as many as ten points between them and Spezia in the safe zone
This will officially be the last chance for the team led by Dejan Stankovic to at least catch a glimmer of hope by claiming a three-pointer against the direct rival here.
Nevertheless, there is really not much to like about this Sampdoria team. They did end a two-loss run by holding Lecce to a 1-1 draw last weekend but it was an ugly performance from Stankovic’s troops who had to face 30 shots (11 on target) on the occasion.
It is safe to say that Sampdoria’s defensive line is pretty much non-existent these days. The team conceded three goals in each of the back-to-back losses to Roma and Cremonese before allowing 30 shots in the clash against Lecce.
We rather see this game as an opportunity for the visitors to claim salvation points because they are only three points above the danger area after another defeat last weekend.
Spezia were powerless in the home outing against Lazio, losing 0-3 and marking their fourth consecutive winless affair in the league in the process.
Sampdoria vs Spezia Head-to-head
- Spezia lead the head to head tie by two wins going into the eighth meeting with Le Samp.
- However, Sampdoria have a win and a draw each from two home matches against Spezia.
- We have seen the Over 2.5 goals FT & Both Teams To Score option landing in six of seven head to head outings between these rivals.
Sampdoria vs Spezia Prediction
Neither Sampdoria nor Spezia are capable of defending which is why we primarily lean towards the Both Teams To Score option at the 1.80 odds. The H2H tradition also points towards such a scenario.
As far as the outcome goes, the away win looks tempting at the 2.87 odds knowing how poor Le Samp’s back line looked in recent weeks.
