Salernitana vs Sampdoria Predictions

  • Under 2.5 goals have been scored in each of Salernitana’s three competitive outings this season.
  • Sampdoria have also seen a maximum of two goals scored in each of their three outings this term.
  • Sampdoria have managed just two shots on target across their opening two fixtures in Serie A.

Early-season strugglers chasing a win

Both Salernitana and Sampdoria are expected to be in the relegation mix once more after narrowly avoiding the drop last term, and Sunday’s clash represents an early opportunity for either side to deal a blow to a potential rival after they both picked up just one point from their first two games. However, if their recent returns are anything to go by, those expecting goals may be disappointed.

Indeed, all three of Salernitana’s competitive games this season have contained under 2.5 goals, with Davide Nicola’s men following a meek Coppa Italia exit to Parma with a 1-0 loss to Roma and a goalless draw at Udinese. Having scored just 33 goals from a measly 37.7 expected goals (xG) last season, Salernitana are reportedly in the market for a striker in Neal Maupay, and need to find goals quickly – they’ve found the net just 17 times in their last 20 home league games.

Sampdoria were one of just two teams to create fewer expected goals (37) than Salernitana last season, and their attacking failures have continued in the new campaign. Though a draw and a defeat against Atalanta and Juventus is not the worst possible return, managing just two shots on target across that double header demonstrates their problems, and they’ve now failed to score in four of their last five games.

Cagey affair anticipated in Salerno

With both of these teams struggling for goals and targeting a potentially crucial early-season result against a rival, under 2.5 goals looks the outstanding play for Sunday’s meeting.

Meanwhile, with Samp winless in five away Serie A matches and Salernitana avoiding defeat in three of their last five at home, backing the hosts to claim a 1-0 win could represent a decent correct score prediction, given they won the sides’ last meeting in April.
