Sampdoria and Udinese will square off at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris on Saturday at 7:45pm (UK time), with both teams looking to get back to winning ways in Serie A.
Sampdoria have been up and down in recent games and proven a very inconsistent side, recently pulling off a giant-killing against Inter Milan, before following up with an unexpected loss to Spezia last time out.
At home, Claudio Ranieri’s men have won two of their last three Serie A games, including that 2-1 triumph over Inter, and have netted at least two goals in each of these. As a result of their inconsistency, Sampdoria naturally find themselves stationed comfortably in mid-table, eight points clear of the bottom three, but 11 points off the European qualification places.
Meanwhile, Udinese are currently on a six-game winless streak in Serie A, which includes a 2-1 home loss at the hands of Napoli on Sunday. Their sloppy defence has been the main reason Udinese have been unable to cultivate a winning formula in recent outings.
As a result, they are dangling perilously in 15th place, only four points clear of the relegation zone. However, away from home, Luca Gotti’s side have suffered just one defeat in their last six league trips, and that sole loss came against reigning champions Juventus.
Can Sampdoria register back-to-back victories on home soil for the first time in this Serie A season? Or will Udinese put an end to their six-game winless streak in the league?
