Sampdoria vs Udinese
Italy Serie A,
Date: Sunday, 3 October 2021
Kick-off 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris.
Both Sampdoria and Udinese will be looking to rebound from recent defeats as they take on each other in the 7th round of the Serie A on Sunday afternoon.
Sampdoria are finally looking ahead at a winnable fixture in Gameweek No 7, following back-to-back defeats to the likes of Napoli and Juventus.
Roberto D’Aversa’s back line was heavily exposed in these two outings, allowing as many as seven goals in the process.
Le Samp have now conceded at least two goals in three of the last four Sereie A fixtures and they will be hoping to improve this record when they take on fellow strugglers Udinese here.
On a more positive note, the hosts were capable of scoring goals at the opposite end recently, despite the losses.
They’ve bagged two or more goals in three of the last four league affairs. The run involves an impressive 0-3 victory at Empoli in mid-September.
Udinese will travel to Genova off the back of a longer loss thread. They’ve suffered three subsequent defeats in the Serie A, failing to find the back of the net in each of them.
Such a run came after a strong start to the season as Luca Gotti’s men claimed two wins and a draw in the opening three rounds of the competition.
Interestingly, none of the last five games Udinese played saw goals scored at both ends.
