Reason For Sassuolo VS Sampdoria Betting Tips
Saturday evening sees a Sassuolo side who are desperately searching for form hosting Sampdoria. The visitors are on a high right now, sitting ninth in the table after their good recent run. Marco Giampaolo recently signed an extended contract keeping him at the Marassi, with the Blucerchiati hoping to kick on under their manager. They’ve established an impressive style, and he certainly has a lot to work with going forward.
This could be an opportunity for Sampdoria to extend their recent form, which has established them in the top half of Serie A. They’ve lost just one of their last 10 matches, and that was a narrow 1-0 defeat to Juventus. That result didn’t harm their momentum, as they followed it up by going to Inter Milan and claiming all three points. The Blucerchiati are showing little fear on the road of late, having won at AC and Inter in their last four away trips.
That’s a great record to take in to a clash against Sassuolo, who have lost their last six matches at the MAPEI Stadium in all competitions. After crashing out of the Coppa Italia to second tier Cesena at their own ground, the Neroverdi lost five straight Serie A games at home. They’ve scored just twice in those five, leaving them 15th in the table. The hosts have failed to win any of their last six matches, which should give the visitors plenty of hope.
The away side have lost none of their last four trips, while they’ve avoided defeat in 53% of their away matches. They take on a Sassuolo side who have failed to score in 47% of their home games, scoring 61% of their league goals on the road.
Sassuolo have now lost 60% of their home matches, picking up just five wins at the MAPEI. Menawhile, Sampdoria are looking strong against the majority of Serie A sides. Since October they’ve suffered just one defeat against sides outside the top five, so this shouldn’t be a stretch for the visitors, who look worth backing at 23/10 with bet365 on the match betting. However, with Samp winning one and drawing four of their five visits to this ground, we’re backing the visitors on the double chance market at 3/4 with bet365.
