Sampdoria vs Cagliari (By: Saconex)
Italy Serie A
Sampdoria (10) vs Cagliari (14)
Its time for Sampdoria to get back winning now. They are coming from 3 straight losses vs Napoli (2), Frosinone (19) & Internazionale (3). Specially losing 0-1 at home vs Frosinone was a big disappointment, so expect the hosts to be fired up here. Total record is 9-6-9 with 40-32 in goal difference, home record is 6-2-3. The hosts will miss Caprari, Barreto & Ramirez today.
Cagliari are placed 14th with total record of 5-9-10 and 21-35 in goal difference. They are coming from their first win in 6 league matches, when they turned it around to a 2-1 home win vs Parma (12) last time out. Overall this team is a decent mid table team imo, but except the last win their results havent been good at all lately. They are specially struggling to find the net, and they are in fact the lowest scoring away team of the league (7 goals scored in 12 away matches). Also they are missing important midfielder Joao Pedro here. Also Klavan, Casto & Cerri will be missed.
* The reverse fixture ended 0-0 back in September
* Sampdoria won this match by 4-1 last season
* Last 10 meetings: 4-5-1
This should be a perfect match for Sampdoria to turn the trend around and get back winning. They really needs a win now, and when facing the lowest scoring away team of Serie A they should be capable of controlling this into a victory. Cagliari doesn’t really scare anyone on their travels, and I guess they are happy with a point here. Question is if they will manage to frustrate the hosts or not. I think Sampdoria will win this match comfortably. 3-0?
