Sampdoria is welcoming Milan to Luigi Ferraris in round 10 in the Italian Serie A.
Sampdoria was playing well for a while in Serie A, but they haven’t won any of their last 5 games while losing 3 of those 5 games. With 11 points, 14 scored goals, and 15 conceded goals in 9 games, Sampdoria is now in 11th place in the Serie A standings. Quagliarella is the leading goalscorer for Sampdoria with 5 goals, while Jankto and Thorsby added 2 goals each. Candreva has 3 assists. Keita Balde is the only injured player for Sampdoria at this time. In their last Serie A game, Sampdoria was playing against Torino on the road, and they have had 47% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 2 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and a decent 82% off the correct passes. Sampdoria was losing 1-0, then leading 1-2, but the final score of this game was 2-2. The biggest problem for Sampdoria is consistency, and even though I think Sampdoria has enough quality to stay far away from the relegation zone, their inconsistencies could cost them a lot of points, and that will make Sampdoria’s season harder than it has to be.
It wouldn’t be wrong to say that Milan is one of the best teams in Europa at the moment, and even though they don’t have Bayern’s flare, Milan is playing fantastic soccer. Milan is still undefeated in Serie A this season, and they are in first place with 23 points, 21 scored goals, and only 8 conceded goals so far. In the Europa League, Milan is in 2nd place with10 points, and they are a sure traveler to the next stage. Earlier this week Milan was hosting Celtic in the Europa League, and after losing 0-2, Milan has turned the game around, and they have won this match 4-0. In their last Serie A game, Milan was playing against Fiorentina at home, and they have had a great game with 44% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 3 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and 79% of the correct passes. Milan has scored 2 goals in the first half, and they have won this game 2-0. Ibrahimovic is playing like he is 29 years old instead of 39, and he has scored 10 goals for Milan so far this season. Kessie has 3 goals. Leao has added 3 goals, while Kessie also has 2 assists. Leao, Ibrahimovic, and Kjaer are injured, and while Kjaer will not be available for a while, Ibrahimovic and Leao should be ready soon. Milan doesn’t need anything in the Europa League, which means they can focus on Serie A, and trying to stay undefeated.
Sampdoria hasn’t won any of their last 5 games. Milan has 4 wins in their 4 games on the road so far this season, and the trends are on Milan’s side in this matchup. There is no way I’m taking Sampdoria in their current form. Milan on the road plus the goals are the way to go here.
