Sampdoria are just a point behind Fiorentina in the chase for Europa League football and Lazio just three points ahead of Napoli in the race for Champions League football this is an absolutely massive game on Saturday evening. Lazio had a disasterous game last week with Roma losing to Milan, Lazio had a chance to go second but instead they had two men sent off and lost to Inter 2-1. Both sendings off were straight red meaning Mauricio and Marchetti will both miss this game. Lazio's hopes rest with Candreva, Klose and Felipe Anderson if Lazio can get enough quality possession to these three then Lazio have a real chance in any game, but they do face one of the best defences in the league here.
Sampdoria manager Mihajlovich will be looking to Eder , Eto and Soriano to lead the way as Sampdoria look to get a win at home. Sampdoria's team is solid at home where they have only lost one game all season to the Champions Juventus. Sampdoria are very solid defensively as are their opponents tomorro w Lazio, in fact we have the third best defence facing off against the fourth best. Sampdoria though have struggled at times to win their home games with nine draws in their seventeen games.
I'm taking the draw here, in fact I think this looks one of the best value draws we'll see. Given their record over home games and Lazio's struggles away at times this year, I am confident we're taking the value play here.
