Sampdoria vs Roma – Serie A: Sampdoria is a team that has been playing well and they are much better than they were last season
This team has been somewhat inconsistent in the past couple of years, whether fighting to avoid relegation or fighting for an European spot, like it is the case this season. They are an attacking team, who scores goals but also concedes a lot.
Sampdoria’s matches have been good in terms of goals. This team is usually very strong at home, having 8 wins and 2 losses in 10 matches played at home.
On their last 3 matches, they’ve won the 2 home matches against Spal and Fiorentina but lost against the accessible and last place Benevento away from home.
Sampdoria is a team with solutions on their roster and they have conditions to fight for an European spot until the end.
Right now, they are in 6th place, which grants access to the Europa League, and they are 2 points above AC Milan, which means it would be important to get a good result here.
Roma is a team that has quality, being organized on the defensive process, and very balanced, with a midfield very available to help on defence or support the attack.
They are the 2nd best defence of the competition, but offensively, they don’t have a lot of goals scored, especially if we compare it to the number of goals scored by the other top Italian teams.
At a certain point, this Roma was maybe considered to be a title contender, but on the last few rounds they’ve lost some ground.
They haven’t won for 4 rounds. They were underwhelming on the home loss against Atalanta and on the draw at home with Sassuolo. On the last round, they had a good 1st half at Inter Milan, where they took the lead 1-0, but they started defending the result too soon and Inter pushed up the pitch and got the draw.
Sampdoria vs Roma – Betting Tip and Prediction:
It is certain that Sampdoria’s matches are always very quick, with good intensity, and that they are always a team that looks to score whenever possible.
However, Roma is a team that defends well, and I don’t expect a lot of goals in this match, especially if Roma scores first.
The matches between these two teams have always had a lot of goals, but here I’m going against the statistics, since I think there will be less than 3.5 goals here. I think the odds are appealing and very interesting.
This is a match that had been postponed for both teams and in my opinion, we’ll see 3 goals at most here.
I don’t expect more than 1 goal before half-time. If that goal occurs, I think that 3 goals in the 2nd half is excessive, even because Roma defends very well, and their attack isn’t very strong.
With that said, my pick is Under 3.5 Goals.
