Tip Reasoning

  • Lazio have won one of seven away league games this term, conceding 17 goals.
  • Both teams have scored in six of Sampdoria’s last seven home matches.
  • Both teams have conceded 29 Serie A goals in 15 games.
  • 12 of Sampdoria’s last 13 games have featured over 2.5 goals, as have 11 of Lazio’s 15 Serie A matches.

Sampdoria and Lazio Among Italy’s Worst Defences

Where do you start with Lazio? Maurizio Sarri’s team have been strong at home this term, winning five of eight, but have won just once on their travels, at Empoli on the opening day. After being hammered 4-0 at Napoli last weekend, Lazio conceded a 99th-minute equaliser in a scarcely believable 4-4 draw with Udinese on Thursday, having recovered from 3-1 down.

That draw showed both the best and the worst of Lazio under Sarri; their 29 goals scored is a tally bettered only by the top four, but they’ve conceded the same amount, giving them the joint third-worst defensive record in the league.

Despite losing at Fiorentina last time out, Sampdoria have enjoyed a mini revival to move five points clear of the bottom three and keep the wolves from Roberto D’Aversa’s door. Sampdoria, however, can match Lazio’s woeful defensive record, having conceded 29 themselves. Meanwhile, six of their last seven home games have seen both teams score, and 12 of their last 13 matches have featured over 2.5 goals.

Back Goals in an End-to-End Contest

Lazio’s dreadful away record is enough to put anyone off backing them to win on Sunday. Of Lazio’s 15 league games, 11 have featured over 2.5 goals, and Sarri’s team have only kept one league clean sheet.

As a result, backing over 2.5 goals and both teams to net seems a good way of securing some value for this contest. For those who fancy a correct score punt, I’m predicting Lazio’s poor away run to continue, with Sampdoria earing a 2-2 draw.
