Sampdoria vs Genoa Prediction & Betting tips
In the relegation battle of the Italian Serie A, the chaff slowly separates from the wheat. While Spal Ferrara and Brescia Calcio are 14 and nine points behind on the saving bank, at the moment there is a lot of evidence that the third relegation between Turin FC, Udinese, Genoa and Lecce will be determined.
The latter team is currently four points behind the saving bank, but with Brescia a feasible opponent in front of the chest. From the Grifone’s point of view, it will be all the more important that they also score on Wednesday evening as part of the 35th matchday. In the Derby Sampdoria against Genoa, the odds of the best betting providers do not have a clear favorite.
In our eyes, the host team of coach Claudio Ranieri deserved a better standing, especially since the blue-whites left the field three times in succession and won five of the past six Serie A matches. The shape is accordingly good and pity for the relegation-prone competitor from your own city will be limited.
Accordingly, our first option between Sampdoria and Genoa is to risk predicting home success. Even a home win of zero in view of the fact that the last two games in Luigi Ferraris were made 3-0, can be used as a value tip.
Sampdoria is in top shape. Claudio Ranieri, once a master coach at Leicester City, has impressively managed to free his protégés from the relegation battle in the past few weeks. After three defeats at the start of the re-start there was just one more defeat in the past six matches in the top division (0: 2 against Atalanta).
The remaining five games were won by “La Samp”. In view of the fact that there are still large calibers waiting for the remaining game days with Juventus or AC Milan, it was all the more important for the blue-and-whites that direct rivals from the table basement were mostly defeated as part of the winning streak. Thanks to these strong results, the Genoese have climbed to 13th place and with twelve points ahead of 18th position, they no longer have to worry about staying in the league.
The Blucerchiati managed to convince especially on the offensive. In four of the last five games, exactly three goals were scored, which is an extremely good value for Sampdoria standards. The Ranieri team usually came on a compact defensive line, although it cannot be denied that the now more courageous approach is fully taken.
If “La Samp” can preserve the constitution from the last three victories and put on a performance similar to that in the second half at the weekend in Parma, when you turned a 0-2 deficit into a 3-2 victory, then the chances are good that in the city derby between Sampdoria and Genoa the odds for the home win pay off. It would also be the third consecutive home win and the fourth of the last five matches. In terms of personnel, Coach Ranieri can draw on almost anything.
Breathe deeply was announced at the weekend at the currently oldest existing football club in Italy. Thanks to a 2-1 home win against the immediate table neighbor from Lecce, which only started with an own goal ten minutes before the end, Davide Nicola’s team was able to increase the lead to the first relegation spot to four points.
Although a preliminary decision in determining the third relegation to Serie B has still not been made, it is logically a little better with a small cushion than when you know that the direct competitor can pass again in 90 minutes. Of course, the red-blues are not allowed to rest, especially since the rest of the program with ungrateful opponents such as Inter Milan, Sassuolo or Hellas Verona is absolutely in itself.
An away win in the Luigi Ferraris would therefore be a real big point. Despite this starting point, we would not dare to forecast the guests between Sampdoria and Genoa, as they have not been able to convince in the recent past abroad. After the restart, there were only two points in three games in the distance, even though the opposition with Brescia, Udinese and Turin FC all played around in similar spheres of classification as you do.
The largest construction site is still its own defensive, which has only once kept the clean slate in the last ten Serie A games. In total, only Lecce and Brescia conceded more goals than the Nicola eleven, who also had the least success abroad of all Italian first division teams (two). CFC coach Nicola also has few personnel problems and will probably have a similar starting line-up as the last one against Lecce.
