THE TEAM NEWS

JUVENTUS

  • Juventus’ wait to claim the Serie A title was extended once again as they suffered a shock loss at the hands of Udinese during the week and they have now won just one of their last five matches.
  • Matthijs De Ligt handed Juve the lead just before the break but they did not stay ahead for long with Udinese levelling soon into the second half before the champions in waiting then succumbed to defeat in injury time.
  • Juventus can seal the title with a win here and they will be eager to do so to avoid placing themselves under any unnecessary pressure but they will be without Douglas Costa who could looks set to miss the remainder of the season.

SAMPDORIA

  • Sampdoria were unable to maintain their run of form after winning their last three as they fell to a narrow defeat against Genoa during the week in what was a disappointing result.
  • Genoa took the lead from the spot but Manolo Gabbiadini was able to get Sampdoria back on level terms just 10 minutes later, although they once again found themselves trailing with less than 20 minutes remaining as Genoa notched again.
  • Sampdoria will look to respond but face a huge challenge against top of the table Juventus and to make things even more difficult for them, they travel without suspended pair Omar Colley and Ronaldo Vieira while Albin Ekdal is an injury doubt.

THE PREDICTION

Juventus could have had the Serie A title wrapped up long before now but they have stuttered in closing stages of the campaign and were defeated by Udinese during the week. They now host a Sampdoria side that suffered their first loss in four matches against Genoa in their midweek clash but despite Juve winning just one of their last five, they can end that poor run in this one, although they are unlikely to keep a clean sheet having conceded in all of their last seven games.
