This weekend’s Serie A action includes a host of key games at both ends of the table, and these Sampdoria vs. Udinese predictions impact the race for Europe and the battle against relegation. Despite their poor recent form, Udinese are 8th with Sampdoria in 19th and seven points from safety.
Sampdoria vs. Udinese odds
1 – A draw – 40/17
2 – Udinese under 1.5 total goals – 13/20
3 – Total goals scored under 2.5 – 3/4
4 – Both teams not to score – 19/20
5 – A 0-0 draw – 17/2
All 20 Serie A sides will be in action over the weekend but Udinese’s trip to Sampdoria pits two of the most out of form sides against each other.
Udinese’s pre-World Cup form keeps them inside the top half of the table. But Andrea Sottil’s side have not won a game in 2023, with a winless run that stretches all the way back to October 3rd, across Serie A and Coppa Italia action.
Hosts Sampdoria have only fared slightly better since their own return to action, with just one league victory in their last seven matches.
That lack of success makes picking a winner almost impossible in this contest with a dull draw a more solid pick.
Unsurprisingly, Udinese’s slump in form has caused them to struggle for goals in recent months, with less than a goal per game on average in their last ten league outings. Sottil’s charges have managed to score more than once in just two matches in that run. Sampdoria have also had issues in front of goal, with two league goals in their last seven matches, as the lowest overall scorers in Serie A.
In their combined six league games since the start of 2023, only one of them has featured over 2.5 goals scored between both teams in 90 minutes of action. The chances of this game being a thriller look to be pretty low and the prospect of a goal-fest even lower.
Based on their respective struggles for points and goals, there is a strong sense this contest could end goalless on the day, with both sides continuing their struggling start to 2023 at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris this weekend.
