Sampdoria started the season very weak – the team of Marco Giampaolo is currently in the relegation zone. However, only five rounds have been played and so far the situation has not become threatening – the 17th Lecce is ahead only due to additional indicators. In the last round, the Genoese lost 1:2 away to Verona, extending their unbeaten streak to five matches.
Milan made some mistakes at the start of the championship, but overall they look more than decent, sitting in third place in the table after five rounds. Stefano Pioli’s team has 11 points and is two points behind leader Atalanta.
After beating Inter 3:2 in the derby, Milan failed to beat Salzburg in the Champions League, drawing 1:1 with the Bulls in Austria. In a few days, the rossoneri will play Dinamo Zagreb at home stadium.
Milan gave a lot of energy in the match against Salzburg this week, but it is unlikely that fatigue can affect the result today – Pioli is able to make two or three substitutions in the main squad, which will not seriously weaken the team. “Sampdoria is in serious crisis and does not have a single win in the championship, Milan should have no problem with such an opponent.
We believe that the hosts have no chance. Our prediction is an Asian handicap (-1) on Milan. In PariPesa this outcome is offered at odds of 1.95.
Milan have a quality attack and are in great shape – the guests are clearly coming for a win today and will be very active in the attack. Sampdoria plays poorly in defense and definitely will not stay dry. However, in recent encounters on the counterattack the Blucerchiati have managed to score goals and today they are capable of extending their winning streak with a goal of prestige.
Our second bet is that both teams will score. Such a bet in PariPesa can be placed for 1.87.
