THE TEAM NEWS

SAMPDORIA

  • Sampdoria’s hopes of finishing in the top half of the table are almost certainly over after they went down to a second consecutive loss at the weekend with Juventus able to beat them by two goals to nil.
  • Sampdoria were able to frustrate Juve for long spells but they conceded deep into first half stoppage time and when the hosts bagged a second, the game was all but over as a contest which was especially the case when Morten Thorsby was shown a red card with 13 minutes left.
  • Juve could have made things worse for Sampdoria but missed a late penalty and in their bid to respond here, they will be without the suspended Thorsby while Julian Chabot is also a doubt after he left the field with an injury in the first half of the weekend’s game.

AC MILAN

  • AC Milan were able to extend their unbeaten run to double-figures as they drew with Atalanta at the weekend but their gap over Napoli in the race for a top six finish was reduced to just one point.
  • Hakan Calhanoglu handed Milan a superb start in their quest to make it four wins in a row and although Gianluigi Donnarumma kept out an Atalanta penalty, he could not prevent a leveller with just over 10 minutes of the first half remaining.
  • Both teams pushed for a winner but neither were able to find the breakthrough with Milan content with the point and they will hope they can return to winning ways in this clash, although Andrea Conti is set to remain on the sidelines with a knee issue.

THE PREDICTION

AC Milan have still yet to suffer a defeat in Serie A since the return to action and they made it 10 games unbeaten with a draw against Atalanta at the weekend. Two wins from their final two matches will seal a place in the top six for Milan with their first task being to overcome Sampdoria in this clash. The hosts have lost their last two and with the visitors in such strong form, this looks set to be a third straight loss for Sampdoria.
