Sampdoria vs Genoa Soccer Betting Prediction
Does “La Samp” shoot city rivals towards Serie B?
In the relegation battle of the Italian Serie A, the chaff slowly separates from the wheat. While Spal Ferrara and Brescia Calcio are 14 and nine points behind on the saving bank, at the moment there is a lot of evidence that the third relegation between Torino FC, Udinese, Genoa and Lecce will be determined.
The latter team is currently four points behind the saving bank, but with Brescia a feasible opponent in front of the chest. From the Grifone’s point of view, it will be all the more important that they also score on Wednesday evening as part of the 35th matchday. In the Derby Sampdoria against Genoa, the odds of the best betting providers do not have a clear favorite.
In our eyes, the host team of coach Claudio Ranieri deserved a better standing, especially since the blue-whites left the field three times in succession and won five of the past six Serie A matches. The shape is accordingly good and pity for the relegation-prone competitor from your own city will be limited.
Accordingly, our first option between Sampdoria and Genoa is to risk predicting home success. Even a home win of zero in view of the fact that the last two games in Luigi Ferraris were made 3-0, can be used as a value tip.
Sampdoria – Statistics & current form
Sampdoria is in top shape. Claudio Ranieri, once a master coach at Leicester City, has impressively managed to free his protégés from the relegation battle in the past few weeks. After three defeats at the start of the re-start there was just one more defeat in the past six matches in the top division (0: 2 against Atalanta).
The remaining five games were won by “La Samp”. In view of the fact that there are still large calibers waiting for the remaining game days with Juventus or AC Milan, it was all the more important for the blue-and-whites that direct rivals from the table basement were mostly defeated as part of the winning streak. Thanks to these strong results, the Genoese have climbed to 13th place and with twelve points ahead of 18th position, they no longer have to worry about staying in the league.
“La Samp” with five wins from the last six games
The Blucerchiati managed to convince especially on the offensive. In four of the last five games, exactly three goals were scored, which is an extremely good value for Sampdoria standards. The Ranieri team usually came on a compact defensive line, although it cannot be denied that the now more courageous approach is fully taken.
If “La Samp” can preserve the constitution from the last three victories and put on a performance similar to that in the second half at the weekend in Parma, when you turned a 0-2 deficit into a 3-2 victory, then the chances are good that in the city derby between Sampdoria and Genoa the odds for the home win pay off. It would also be the third consecutive home win and the fourth of the last five matches. In terms of personnel, Coach Ranieri can draw on almost anything.
Probable lineups of Sampdoria:
Audero; Depaoli, Chabot, Colley, Augello; Linetty, Ekdal, Thorsby, Jankto; Quagliarella, Bonazzoli
Last games from Sampdoria:
07/19 2020 Parma Calcio 1913 2-3 Sampdoria Genoa
07/15 2020 Sampdoria Genoa 3 – 0 Cagliari
07/12 2020 Udinese 1 – 3 Sampdoria Genoa

07/05 2020 Sampdoria Genoa 3 – 0 SPAL 2013
Genoa – Statistics & current form
Breathe deeply was announced at the weekend at the currently oldest existing football club in Italy. Thanks to a 2-1 home win against the immediate table neighbor from Lecce, which only started with an own goal ten minutes before the end, Davide Nicola’s team was able to increase the lead to the first relegation spot to four points.
Although a preliminary decision in determining the third relegation to Serie B has still not been made, it is logically a little better with a small cushion than when you know that the direct competitor can pass again in 90 minutes. Of course, the red-blues are not allowed to rest, especially since the rest of the program with ungrateful opponents such as Inter Milan, Sassuolo or Hellas Verona is absolutely in itself.
Genoa still victorious after the restart
An away win in the Luigi Ferraris would therefore be a real big point. Despite this starting point, we would not dare to forecast the guests between Sampdoria and Genoa, as they have not been able to convince in the recent past abroad. After the restart, there were only two points in three games in the distance, even though the opposition with Brescia, Udinese and Torino FC all played around in similar spheres of classification as you do.
The largest construction site is still its own defensive, which has only once kept the clean slate in the last ten Serie A games. In total, only Lecce and Brescia conceded more goals than the Nicola eleven, who also had the least success abroad of all Italian first division teams (two). CFC coach Nicola also has few personnel problems and will probably have a similar starting line-up as the last one against Lecce.
Probable lineup of Genoa:
Perin; Romero, Soumaro, Zapata; Ghiglione, Schone, Jagiello, Behrami, Criscito; Pinamonti, Sanabria
Last games from Genoa:
07/19 2020 Genoa 2 – 1 Lecce
07/16 2020 Torino 3 – 0 Genoa
07/12 2020 Genoa 2 – 0 SPAL 2013
07/08 2020 Genoa 1 – 2 SSC Napoli
07/05 2020 Udinese 2 – 2 Genoa
Sampdoria vs Genoa Direct comparison
Usually a city derby is shaped by the fans. However, since the duel will logically take place on Wednesday evening without external spectators, the derby character will also be somewhat lost.
Nevertheless, the Grifones in particular have a special incentive to win because they have been without a win against Sampdoria for seven games. Five of these recent seven encounters ended in success for “La Samp”. Also in the first leg, the blue and whites barely prevailed 1-0. Also interesting: In five of the last six direct duels, the Rossoblu didn’t even score a single goal.
Sampdoria vs Genoa Soccer Betting Prediction
In northwestern Italy, the tree burns on Wednesday evening. In the city derby, Sampdoria and Genoa face off. When looking at the betting odds, it becomes clear that no clear favorite can be identified, even though the hosts are not only better placed in the classification, but also presented themselves in the clearly better form in the end.
“La Samp” won five of the past six Serie A games. The offensive in particular played into a real frenzy and scored three times in each of the victories. The confidence, combined with the fact that the last two home games were won 3-0, leads us to give a tip on the three of the home side between Sampdoria and Genoa.
Key facts – Sampdoria vs Genoa tips
Sampdoria has won five of their last six games
Genoa celebrated the fewest wins of all Serie A clubs abroad
Five of the recent seven direct duels went to “La Samp”
The Rossoblu is deep in the relegation battle and needs the points more urgently, but the Nicola eleven are still waiting for their first victory abroad after the restart, even though the opposition was relatively uncomplicated. In addition, because the blue-and-white won five of the recent seven direct duels against the Grifone, there is no alternative in our eyes at Sampdoria vs. Genoa to play the odds on the Ranieri charges.
