Monday night football from Italy will see Hellas Verona take on Sampdoria. Sampdoria are one of the best defensive teams in the league, only conceding five goals away from home all season, their defensive success surely is based in manager Mihajlovich's solid knowledge. The only problem for the side seems to be going forward. With Gabbiadini the top scorer on the squad with only four goals its obvious where the problems lie for Sampdoria, but being honest there are not too many problems with this team. Only one loss this season shows that this side is really tough to beat but with seven draws on the season its obvious that the defence is keeping them in games that the offence just isnt good enough to win. Interesting game here on Monday night where Sampdoria face a Hellas Verona team that are struggling at the moment.
Hellas Verona are starting to suffer in the league with only three wins all season the club must put more wins on the board if they are going to stay out of the relegation battle this season. A squad of veterans led by luca toni and Javier Saviola this is a squad that has the know how to win but simply must score more goals. Only thirteen goals this seaso (1 a game) has led to current situation where they are gettin dragged into a relegation battle becasue they are just not winning games.
This one is a weird game to try to handicap, on paper it looks a nailed on draw between the two of them they have twelve draws in twenty six games, the odds dictate this is the play and looking at the stats I cant disagree. I am taking the draw in this one for a small play.
