Milan is hosting Sampdoria at San Siro in round 29 in the Italian Serie A.
Milan has been a bit shaky lately, and in addition to losing the top spot in Serie A, Milan has gotten knocked out of the Europa League to Manchester United. After 2 losses in a row, and after no winning 3 games in a row, Milan was playing against Fiorentina on the road before the break, and they have won that game. Milan was the better team in that match with 61% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 8 corner kicks, 4 big chances created, and a solid 86% of the correct passes. Milan was leading in this game, then they were losing, but in the end, Milan was able to win this match 2-3. Thanks to this win, Milan has stayed in the hunt for Inter, and they are now in 2nd place with 59 points, 6 points less than Inter, but Milan also has a game more played. With 15 goals in 15 games, Ibrahimovic is Milan’s leading goalscorer, while Kessie added 9 goals. Calhanoglu has 8 assists. Madzukic, Calabria, and Romagnoli are injured, while Leao and Diaz are still questionable. Milan is a good team, but they need depth, and there are some juicy transfer rumors for the next transfer window in Milan.
Sampdoria is doing well this season, and they are far from the relegation zone, and we will be seeing Sampdoria in Serie A next season as well. With 38 scored goals, Sampdoria is a decent offensive team, but they have conceded 42 goals, and their defense is not the best. Sampdoria has won only 1 of their last 6 games, and it was tight. Sampdoria was hosting Torino in their last Serie A game, and they have had only 35% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 1 corner kick, 2 big chances created, and only 68% of the correct passes. Luckily for Sampdoria, Torino is a bad team, and they were able to win this match 1-0. Sampdoria now has 35 points, and they are in 10th place, but there is no way Sampdoria will reach the Europa League spot, but they could still drop a few spots in the standings. Quagliarella is the leading goalscorer for Sampdoria with 9 goals, while Balde and Candreva each added 5 goals. Torregrossa and Ekdal are both injured for Sampdoria. Overall, it was a decent season for Sampdoria, and I’m sure they are happy they secured their Serie A status much sooner than in the last few seasons.
When playing at home, Milan has not lost to Sampdoria in their last 3 games. The trends are on Milan’s side in this matchup, and honestly, Milan can’t afford to lose any more games if they want to stay on Inter’s tail. I’m taking Milan at home.
