Juventus vs Sampdoria Prediction & Betting tips
Master Juventus wants to start the season with a successful game! Serie A is back and before the game Juventus vs. Sampdoria, the betting odds show that Juventus are the clear favorites in this opening game.
That comes as little surprise. Because the “Vecchia Signora” is champion, while Sampdoria has had a very unsatisfactory season. The guests from Genoa fought for a long time against relegation. This should not be repeated now.
Anything but a Sampdoria defeat at the beginning would be a surprise. The game will kick off on Sunday evening at 19:45 p.m. at Turin’s Allianz Stadium.
A new season begins and in Italy the same omens apply as always. If a team wants to win the title, then Juventus has to be defeated somehow. Not surprisingly, before the game Juventus vs. Sampdoria the odds that the host is clearly favored.
In the preseason, the old lady was champion, but not all statistics could be dominated. Atalanta had the best offensive, Inter had the best defense, and Juventus did not even have the fewest defeats. In connection with the disappointing end in the Champions League, these were the parameters that led to the dismissal of Maurizio Sarri.
Now Andrea Pirlo, with no experience as head coach, has the reins at Juventus. With newcomers like Weston McKennie, Dejan Kulusevski and very likely Edin Dzeko, Juventus should appear even more dominant.
The handwriting of the new coach is still unclear. Under Sarri, Juventus tried to win through possession. But the squad was not ideally cast for this, too often it was the individual class of a Ronaldo or Dybala that made the difference.
So Pirlo has some construction sites that he needs to tackle. Nevertheless, the line-up ensures confidence. In order to get the game against Sampdoria over the stage, defensive mistakes have to be eliminated.
After the brief preparation, it is also not easy to predict which formation Juventus will start with. The contract with Higuain has been terminated, de Ligt, de Sciglio and Bernardeschi are missing, Dybala is questionable.
For Sampdoria, one of the most difficult tasks is on the program right at the start of the season. At Juventus, the team are blatant outsiders, especially after they did last season. Because Sampdoria was in the end in 15th place, even had to fear for relegation at times.
The goal now is that this does not happen again. A quiet season with a placement in the midfield is desired. Whether this succeeds will perhaps be shown against the industry leader from Turin.
In the friendly matches, the team of old master Claudio Ranieri made a very solid impression. 65 goals conceded in the 2019/20 season clearly show the point at which to start. Ranieri should stabilize the defensive!
And with that, the route for the game against Juventus is already clear. Above all, Sampdoria wants to be compact and allow as little as possible. Against a Juventus, which is still in the rebuilding phase and still has some gaps in the squad, this could even lead to a decent result.
Before the game Juventus vs. Sampdoria is our prediction that not both teams will score a goal. Juventus are favorites, but a game with many goals is not likely. Rather, a close victory for the hosts should come about through individual class.
Sampdoria will likely bet on a compact midfield. Ekdal, Jankto and Vieira have a good mix of aggressiveness and running strength. Needle pricks should then be set forward, especially the massive striker Gabbiadini is a factor here. And as a noble joker, Ranieri has the experienced Quagliarella on the bank. It is clear, however, that a possible success depends primarily on the defensive.
