Sampdoria vs Verona
Italian Serie A
Date: 19 March 2023, Sunday
Kick-off at 11:30 UK / 12:30 CET
Venue: Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris (Genova).

Sampdoria will try and catch their last train in quest of avoiding the drop to Serie B football on Sunday when they play host to Verona in the early afternoon fixture at Stadio Comunale Luigiu Ferraris.

Le Samp have all but been relegated with as many as 12 points between them and the safe zone after 26 rounds of the competition.

Nonetheless, their fans still dream big and their dreams might become at least a bit more realistic with three points in this clash against the direct rivals.

This has been a truly awful campaign for Sampdoria. They are yet to celebrate a win in front of the home fans, claiming just 4 points in 13 league matches at Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris so far.

The team led by Dejan Stankovic own the league’s worst attacking record having bagged just 13 goals in 26 outings this term.

Verona have the joint-second worst offensive record with 21 goals in 26 outings. The visitors are in a much better situation, though, sitting only five points below the safe zone in the Serie A table.

However, Verona did not impress at all in recent games, scoring only a single goal in the previous four league outings.

Sampdoria vs Verona Head-to-head

  • Sampdoria will rely heavily on the home court advantage going into this tie because they have won 10, drawn 3, and lost only 1 of the previous 14 home clashes against Verona.
  • Verona celebrated a 2-1 victory in the reverse game in the first half of the season at Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi.
  • Interestingly, both teams were on target in six of the previous seven head to head affairs.

Sampdoria vs Verona Prediction

This is the match between the two of the worst attacking lines in the league. We by no means expect a beautiful afternoon of football in Genova, especially when you add the stakes involves for both outfits.

Sampdoria are winless at home, while Verona are winless on the road this term. We’ll bet on these records to stay valid after this weekend, meaning the value is with the 1-1 draw as the correct score option at the attractive 6.00 odds. The main pick is Under 2.5 goals FT at the 1.57 odds.
