THE TEAM NEWS

SAMPDORIA

  • Sampdoria made it three wins in a row in Serie A and they also managed to continue their superb recent record in front of goal as they fought from two goals down against Parma to secure a 2-3 success on the road at the weekend.
  • Parma led by two goals at the break but second half goals from Julian Chabot, Fabio Quagliarella and Federico Bonazzoli turned the game on its head as Sampdoria struck three times for the third game in succession.
  • They will hope to maintain their success in front of goal as they host Genoa and they will be confident as they boast a very healthy squad with Ronaldo Vieira likely to be the only absentee.

GENOA

  • Genoa found a winner in the final 10 minutes of their pivotal contest with Lecce and that success could turn out to be huge for them as it opened up a four-point advantage over their relegation rivals.
  • Antonio Sanabria handed Genoa an early lead but they were fortunate to remain ahead as Lecce missed their chance to level from the spot just before half-time and they did not heed that warning as they did eventually equalise on the hour.
  • That sparked Genoa back into life and they were rewarded when Lecce put through their own net to seal a vital three points in their bid to avoid the drop but they look set to be without Stefano Sturaro who suffered an early injury at the weekend.

THE PREDICTION

Sampdoria are ending their season on a high and made it three wins in a row in their latest outing. They have scored three goals in each of those three successes and they will believe they can extend their winning streak as they host Genoa. The visitors earned a valuable three points to create a further buffer between themselves and the relegation zone but having failed to win any of their last seven clashes with Sampdoria, it is likely that the hosts will be able to avoid defeat at the very least.
