Tip Reasoning

  • Four of Sampdoria’s last five Serie A games have contained under 2.5 goals.
  • Genoa, meanwhile, have seen fewer than three goals scored in 10 of their last 11 contests.
  • Seven of the last nine Serie A Derby della Lanterna clashes have seen under 2.5 goals.

Could Samp be dragged into relegation fight by rivals?

Sampdoria have spent much of the season in the lower reaches of mid-table, a long way away from making any sort of positive progress but looking likely to avoid a relegation battle. However, with just four games left in this Serie A season, Marco Giampaolo’s men are beginning to look a little vulnerable, and local rivals Genoa could go within two points of them with a huge victory.

Furthermore, Sampdoria’s final three fixtures see them face Lazio, Fiorentina, and Inter, two of them on their travels, and a rejuvenated Salernitana side continue to possess a game in hand over them in 18th. In short, Sampdoria simply cannot afford to lose Saturday’s Derby della Lanterna. The huge stakes at play could lead to a cagey affair, particularly with Sampdoria seeing under 2.5 goals scored in four of their last five games.

Genoa have only won one of the last 11 Serie A derbies, and have recorded just two wins in their last 31 league matches, but have only lost on three of their last 11 outings. Indeed, Alexander Blessin’s side have been extremely solid of late, seeing fewer than three goals scored in 10 of their last 11 matches, during which time only Verona, Lazio, and AC Milan have beaten them.

Cagey affair likely given monumental derby stakes

Given that both teams have struggled for goals and been involved in several cagey contests in recent weeks, as well as the fact Sampdoria cannot afford to take too many risks, a low-scoring clash looks overwhelmingly likely.

Seven of the last nine league meetings between these rivals have seen under 2.5 goals, and another low-scoring encounter looks likely in Saturday’s hugely consequential clash. Meanwhile, Genoa have drawn seven of their last 11 matches and could be set for another stalemate, with a 1-1 draw appearing a decent correct score prediction.
