Italian Serie A

Kick-off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris (Genova).

Sampdoria continued their nightmare campaign in the 2022/23 Serie A season with a 5-0 defeat at the hands of Fiorentina on Sunday at Stadio Artemio Franchi.

It was another horrendous performance from Le Samp who allowed the rivals 23 shots, 10 of which went on goal on the occasion. For the sake of comparison, Dejan Stankovic’s troops had just a single shot on target in the 90 minutes of play in Florence.

The Serbian manager offered resignation straight after the game as he is fully aware of the lack of chemistry between him and the players.

Sampdoria are still firmly at the very foot of the league table and only a miracle can prevent the drop to Serie B football with six games left to play and as many as ten points between them and the safe zone.

Le Samp will be in action again on Wednesday when they host mid-table Torino in Matchday No 33 at Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris.

Torino suffered a 1-2 defeat at the hands of Atalanta on Saturday in what was a pretty quiet affair without too many goal-scoring chances on either end.

Il Toro generally ply tight and defensive-minded football under Ivan Juric as four of the last five of their Serie A affairs ended with fewer than three goals scored.

Sampdoria vs Torino Head-to-head

  • Torino have only managed to beat Le Samp 5 times in the previous 21 visits to Genova.
  • Il Toro did come victorious in the return outing between these two teams in November last year at Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino (2-0).
  • Torino have three wins in the previous four head to head meetings with Le Samp.

Sampdoria vs Torino Prediction

Torino are very tough to break down under Juric and Sampdoria own the worst attacking record in the league with just 20 goals scored in 32 outings so far in the season.

Furthermore, the hosts have just suffered a demolishing 5-0 defeat to Fiorentina at the weekend and there is nothing to suggest a positive scenario for them on Wednesday. Torino to win is the main pick at the 1.90 odds, while we also like the visitors to keep a clean sheet at the 2.25 odds.

Sampdoria vs Torino Betting Tips

  • Torino to win @ 1.90 (9/10)
  • Torino to keep a clean sheet @ 2.25 (5/4) odd.
