      Sampdoria vs AC Milan Predictions

      A lot has gone wrong for Sampdoria already this season and perhaps one of their worst recent memories will have been the 4-1 thrashing at the hands of AC Milan in November. They have an opportunity to exact some revenge on Thursday night when they host Milan in the Last 16 of the Coppa Italia. Is this the competition that ignites a lifeless season for Sampdoria?

      We’ll find out soon enough presumably and they did manage a gutsy 1-1 draw away against fellow strugglers Lazio, but it’s still stretching the imagination for a team that has to have one eye on relegation.

      For AC Milan, there is a continuing search for consistent quality. That thrashing of Sampdoria was promptly followed by back-to-back disappointing results in the league, a 0-0 draw with Carpi and a 1-1 draw at the San Siro against win-less Verona.

      Three Reasons for Betting Tips

      1. Milan get back on track

      Overall, they look like a good football team and they won’t feel overly concerned about squad rotation with a clash against Frosinone coming up midweek.

      2. Sampdoria struggles continue

      Just no reason to believe that this team, which is especially weak at the back, can turn it around for this game or this competition.

      3. Scars from last month

      That win was a tough blow to inflict upon this Sampdoria team and even at home, we’re not convinced that Milan won’t be able to build upon that showing and further dominate here.
