Sampdoria vs Juventus
Italy Serie A
Date: Saturday, 30 January 2021
Kick-Off at 17.00 UK
Venue: Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris, Genova.
Sampdoria’s two-win streak will be on a tough test on Saturday evening when they are about to come face to face with the defending champions Juventus at Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris.
Claudio Ranieri seems to have found the winning formula of late as Le Samp won three of the last four league matches to jump into the top half of the Serie A standings.
The team scored at least two goals in each of the wins along the way. They have generally been very productive on the home court throughout the whole season, netting 17 goals in 9 league fixtures at Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris.
The visitors have been struggling badly for consistency during the 2020/21 campaign. The lack of consistent results is by no means a Juventus’ characteristics and it will be very interesting to see if Andrea Pirlo will be capable of fixing this major issue in the second half of the season.
Sampdoria vs Juventus Head-to-head
Sampdoria have rarely done well in head to head matches against Juventus. I Bianconeri won five of the last six meetings between the two outfits.
Juventus will come into this on the back of two straight clean sheet wins over Le Samp, carrying over a 5-0 goal difference in the process.
Sampdoria vs Juventus Prediction
Juventus are seven points short of Milan at the top of the standings but have a game in hand on I Rossoneri, meaning the battle for Scudetto title is still wide open. The champions’ ambitions have suffered a big setback two weeks ago after a dismal 2-0 defeat to Inter Milan.
However, Juventus bounce back by beating Bologna 2-0 in Turin. I Bianconeri thus made it four wins in the last five Serie A outings. They have scored at least two goals in each of these victories.
Away win & Both Teams To Score looks like a great betting option at the 3.00 odds. Le Samp have frequently been on the scoresheet lately. They have an exciting attacking prospect with Fabio Quagliarella and Keita Balde.
We can hardly imagine a low-scoring contest between these two sides and the Over 2.5 goals FT is yet another fantastic pick at the 1.61 odds
