Sampdoria vs AC Milan Prediction & Betting tips
Sampdoria and AC Milan can both make good use of the three points in the battle for European tickets. Matches between these two teams are generally very exciting. In 2018 AC Milan narrowly won both games at home (1-0 and 3-2), in January of this year AC Milan won a final in the cup only after an extension.
For Sampdoria, achieving European football is still a real possibility. It currently stands at 42 points and is three points behind both sixth and seventh place, which entitles the European League to the preliminary round if the cup winner already qualifies for European football.
In the weekend before the international break, Sampdoria visited Sassuolo, which was already six games without a win and has little left to play for this season. The accompanying audience was served in no time. Not only did La Samp win, there were also eight goals to be seen. Already at half time Sampdoria was 1-3, the 36-year-old Quagliarella made his 21st league score of the season. After the break the teams were equal to each other but Sassuolo never came close to a point (3-5).
Gabbiadini is a doubt case at Sampdoria. The attacker had a fever at the start of this week but seems to have recovered in time. There are more question marks around right back Bereszynski, who, like seven other players of the Polish national team, has contracted flu. Striker Quagliarella also showed his scoring urge with the national team, he scored two penalties against Liechtenstein and is Italy’s oldest goal scorer ever.
AC Milan was able to enjoy third place for only two weeks. After the defeat against the cityman it was put back to fourth place, where it already pitched eleven rounds this season.
The defeat to Inter was hard for AC Milan fans as the home team was in top form and the first win over Inter since January 2016 was expected. Already after three minutes, Vecino scored the 0-1 for the Nerazzuri, which was also the only goal of the first half. Shortly after the break, Stefan de Vrij doubled the score with a header from a pass by Politano. Only then did AC Milan get the upper hand and it came to some good chances. Bakayoko made it 1-2 from a free kick before the sixtieth minute, but saw his goal canceled by a penalty in the 67th minute (1-3). Twenty minutes before the end, Musacchio brought the tension back with the 2-3 out of another free kick, this was the last feat of the home team. The Rossoneri can blame themselves for hunting too late for goals and especially for the first half.
