Sampdoria are Battling Relegation
Sampdoria are battling relegation in Serie A this season. Marco Giampaolo was sacked in October after a poor start to the campaign. Dejan Stankovic arrived shortly after, but the former Red Star Belgrade boss has yet to turn the club’s fortunes around.
Sampdoria are second from bottom in the current Serie A table, just two points above bottom side Cremonese. Worryingly for Stankovic and his troops, they are seven points adrift of safety at the halfway point.
The season has been a struggle from the very first minute, as the Blue-circled look to be well out of their depth this year. They have picked up just two wins and have scored a woeful eight goals in 18 league matches. Along the way, they have lost 13 and shipped 31 goals.
Sampdoria have yet to win a home league game this season. Their last three points at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris came against Fiorentina back in May.
They did manage to secure a rare three points in their first game back after the 2022 FIFA World Cup break, beating Sassuolo 2-1 away from home. However, they have fallen to back-to-back defeats to Napoli and Empoli without scoring since.
La Samp needs to put some kind of run together sooner rather than later, as they are in danger of being cut adrift in the bottom three. Can they cause an upset and claim a massive three points in front of their home supporters this weekend?
Sampdoria Projected Lineup:
Sampdoria Injuries: Fabio Quagliarella and Manuel De Luca are still out.
Udinese are Having a Solid Season
Udinese, who finished 12th last term, are having a solid season in Serie A in terms of their league position. The White and Blacks are chasing down a European place, as they sit eighth on 25 points right now. A top-six finish looks unlikely, but the top-half is a real possibility.
Udinese have had a rough patch of form of late, though. They were challenging right at the top of the table after a stunning start, but Andrea Sottil’s side are now winless in ten Serie A matches. Since six successive wins from August to September, they have drawn six and lost four.
Udinese have taken just one point from the last 12 on offer, and Sottil’s men will be desperate to get back to winning ways. They have a great chance to end the run this weekend.
Udinese Projected Lineup:
Udinese Injuries: Fully fit squad.

Sampdoria vs. Udinese Pick and Prediction
Sampdoria are having a Serie A season to forget right now. They have been lackluster in front of goal and have one of the leakiest defenses in the division.
Udinese made a blistering start but have gone off the boil of late. Nevertheless, the Udine outfit will be eyeing up all three points from the weekend’s trip to Genoa.
When the pair last met, Udinese sealed a narrow 2-1 home win back in March 2022. We can see something similar unfolding at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris. Back the away victory and both teams to score at the top price of +650.
Six of the last seven meetings between Sampdoria and Udinese have produced over 2.5 goals. Check out the away win and over 2.5 goals in this one at +275.
