Genoa – Sampdoria
Genoa and Sampdoria get round 17 of the Italian Serie A underway when they lock horns at the Luigi Ferraris Stadium on Friday. The hosts will be seeking just their second win of the season, while the visitors will be looking to snap their two-game losing streak. Andriy Shevchenko’s men have now failed to pick up a win in their last 15 league games — a run stretching back to their 3-2 win against Cagliari in September’s season opener.
Meanwhile, Sampdoria failed to return to winning ways last time out as they fell to a 3-1 loss against 10-man Lazio. With 15 points from 16 games, Sampdoria are currently 15th on the log, level on points with Venezia.
With 15 wins from the last 35 meetings between the sides, Sampdoria boasts a slightly superior record in the history of this fixture. Genoa have picked up three fewer wins, while eight games have ended all square. We predict the spoils will be shared in this one as they head into the game in similar form.
This match will be played on 10/12/2021 at 21:45.
