      Tip Reasoning

      Sampdoria moved into the top six with their win over Empoli at the weekend, while they will be out to continue their good form on Boxing Day. Bottom side Chievo are the visitors to Samp this week, with the away side looking to claim a first win of the season after a difficult campaign. Will they finally end that wait, or can the hosts continue to boost their hopes of making the Europa League.

      Sampdoria continue to show just how open this Serie A campaign is. The hosts have sat in and around the top six this season, but they’ve struggled to repeat the pace of their start last season. They were a clear European contender by the halfway point, before things started to fall apart. They have now leapt into a Europa League spot, which they’ll expect to hold on to ahead of the visit of the league’s worst side.

      Chievo continue to wait for a victory, after a dreadful season to date. They’ve been hit by a three-point penalty earlier in the campaign, which has only added to the problems facing the Gialloblu. The visitors have put together a strong run of draws recently, but they have pressure on them to grab three points in order to boost their slim hopes of staying in the top flight beyond May.

      Chievo’s streak of draws may worry the hosts, but Samp boast form of their own. They come into this game pushing for a fifth win in six matches. After hitting four goals at Empoli on Saturday they’re in fine form in front of goal, something they are likely to continue against one of the league’s worst defences. The visitors have already conceded an average of two goals per away trip this term, so we fancy them to struggle at the back.

      Samp have built up some great form at home over the last 18 months, which has been key to them kicking on the league. The hosts are worthy favourites for success after back to back wins at this ground, so we’re tipping them to live up to that tag. They’ve won four of their last six meetings between the two here, so we see Samp claiming a 2-1 victory this week.
