Reason For Genoa vs Sampdoria Predictions

  • This match sees the third-worst home team take on the second-worst away team.
  • Only two teams in the league have scored fewer travelling goals than Sampdoria this season.
  • Genoa haven’t beaten Sampdoria since 2016. They’ve since failed to win six renewals of this fixture, four of which they’ve lost.
  • This is essentially a home game for both teams as the pair share Stadio Luigi Ferraris.

Hosts search for back-to-back home wins

Things haven’t gone to plan for Genoa, who currently sit in the bottom three, in recent times. Saturday’s hosts have won none of their last six matches, while they’ve taken three points from just one of their last 13 Serie A games.

Scoring goals hasn’t been a huge problem, but scoring multiple goals has. Genoa have notched 17 in 15 but have only scored more than once on four occasions. That’s simply not good enough, considering they’ve shipped 30 goals and have conceded two or more nine times.

Even at home, they’ve struggled to outscore opponents, scoring eight and conceding 10 in seven matches at this venue. Fortunately, they’re up against their rivals and fellow tenants, who’re also enduring a poor campaign.

Defence a problem for Sampdoria

Sampdoria have struggled away from home this term, though luckily for them they’re playing at their home ground, as they share it with Saturday’s opponents Genoa. That said, it’s not as if they’ve thrived at Stadio Luigi Ferraris, so confidence probably won’t be too high ahead of Derby della Lanterna.

Claudio Ranieri’s men have done a slightly better job of taking points at home than Genoa this term but they’ve by no means done well at this venue, winning two, drawing three and losing three, scoring just five and conceding nine in the process. They’ve conceded one fewer than their rivals but have scored three less.

Goals few and far between

When running the rule over this pair, what stands out most is the lack of forward power shown at home. On this basis, ‘Both Teams to Score – NO’ appeals. Genoa are averaging just over a goal per game at Stadio Luigi Ferraris, but they’ve failed to score in two of their last five here and have been fortunate to score as many as they have.

After all, they’re the fourth-worst Serie A team in terms of shots for at home, while they come into this match having registered just three shots on target in their last 180 minutes of home football.

Sampdoria average just 0.62 goals at home and have failed to score in 50% of their matches at this venue. Both teams have scored in just 38% of Sampdoria’s matches in front of a home crowd this term.
