A derby like no other

The Derby della Lanterna is usually a thrilling watch before the match even starts, as the two sets of fans try to out-do one another with their displays in the stands. This time around, there’s going to be a silence before the two teams of Genova battle it out.

The current circumstances make this a very odd game. Given that the two share this stadium, it’s really only the fans who make any kind of advantage for their team, with those games still incredibly level. Here we have no fans, no travelling team and no kind of home advantage whatsoever. This is as even of a playing field as these two rivals will get. That makes this a thrilling prospect to watch.

Ranieri has Samp firing

The game may be level, but Sampdoria certainly have to be viewed as favourites on recent form. They had been in the mix for the drop alongside Genoa earlier in the campaign, but a brilliant run has carried Claudio Ranieri’s men towards safety. As far as the former Leicester boss is concerned, his job is already done.

Ranieri has led Samp to five wins in six matches, with Atalanta the only team to beat them in that run. Their comeback from 2-0 down to win 3-2 at Parma at the weekend was impressive, while it’s created exactly the kind of spirit you’d want ahead of a derby. Not only are the players united, but their mentality is strong and confidence is high. Having gone seven games without defeat against Genoa, Samp can expect to continue their great form.

Genoa look vulnerable

Genoa have been boosted in recent home matches after claiming wins against Lecce and SPAL – two of the bottom three. However, their home record against the 16 sides above them is poor. They’ve won just three of those 14 matches, suffering 10 defeats. They’ve lost the last two derbies against Sampdoria, while they have conceded twice or more on 20 occasions in the league this season.

Before their back to back meetings here with sides on course for relegation, Genoa conceded twice or more in five of six games. That has us backing a high-scoring Samp side going forward in our predictions, as they have won 3-0 in back to back home matches. They’ve scored three in each of their last three games, hitting 13 across their last five victories. Following that fine form, over 1.5 Sampdoria team goals is our pick for this one.

On top of that, we’re backing against a Genoa side who have scored once in their last six meetings with Samp. The hosts have back to back wins to nil at home, so we’re tipping them to claim a 2-0 victory over their bitter rivals, pushing the Grifone a little closer to the bottom three.
