Reason For Parma vs Sampdoria Predictions

  • No side has won more games across the last five Serie A matches than Sampdoria (4)
  • The hosts have lost five of their last six matches
  • Both teams have scored in each of Parma’s last eight games
  • Parma have won only two of eight meetings with Sampdoria

Gap closing between this pair

These two sides have plenty of top flight clashes between them already. The pair have met 41 times so far in Serie A: Parma lead by 16 wins to 14, with 11 draws. That slender lead could be halved this weekend, while Parma’s narrow lead over Sampdoria in the table could be wiped out.

These two resumed the Serie A season in very different positions, but they have been slowly drifting closer together. It’s taken a terrible run for the hosts and a big revival from Sampdoria, but could those two runs could see Samp leapfrog the hosts this weekend as well as securing their safety in the top-flight.

Ranieri revival

Sampdoria have opened up a nine-point lead over the bottom three after their stellar form of late, which they capped off with a 3-0 victory against Cagliari in midweek. No team have won more games than Sampdoria in the last five Serie A matchdays: four out of five (equal with Atalanta and Sassuolo).

Claudio Ranieri had some tough times since arriving at the club, but in recent weeks he’s got them playing well. They are now within two points of 12th placed Parma, so the Blucerchiati can start looking up the table if they can keep this winning run going. Against a Parma side who have lost five of their last six, that seems very possible.

Poor Parma to be punished

The hosts have dropped off thanks to poor defensive displays, as they’ve seen both teams score in all of their eight games since the restart. They don’t look organised enough at the back, which has seen them concede 16 goals across those eight matches. A Sampdoria side who have scored in 11 of their last 12 league games should prey on that.

Meanwhile, Samp have conceded in 81% of their away trips, so goals look likely here. We are backing both teams to score in this one, given that the visitors have conceded in seven straight matches on the road. However, they have scored more than enough goals of late to pick up the points despite conceding.

This isn’t a clash which has favoured the hosts in recent years. After beating Sampdoria four times in a row between 2010 and 2012, Parma have won only two of the following eight games against the Blucerchiati (D3 L3). They’ve failed to win the last two at home against Samp, while they have the league’s worst post-restart home record. As a result, a 2-1 away win is our correct score prediction, with Parma losing by that scoreline in three of their last five league defeats.
