Tip Reasoning

  • Each of Sampdoria’s last three games have contained under 2.5 goals.
  • Two of Salernitana’s last three outings, meanwhile, have featured fewer than three goals.
  • Sampdoria won November’s return fixture 2-0.
  • Salernitana’s attacking record is the worst in Serie A, with just 23 goals in 31 matches.

Strugglers’ showdown huge for Sampdoria

Sitting nine points from safety with just three league wins to their name all season, Serie A’s bottom club Salernitana are destined for an immediate return to Serie B, though who else will join them is much less certain. Sampdoria, seven points clear of Genoa and Venezia but having played a game more than the latter, remain in the discussion, and must see Saturday’s contest as a brilliant opportunity to pull themselves clear of trouble.

However, Samp are on a poor run of their own, winning one and losing five of their last six games. On home soil, meanwhile, Samp have lost back-to-back matches, although those losses did come against Juventus and Roma, and Marco Giampaolo’s men had won back-to-back games on their own ground immediately prior to those. More concerning will be their failure to score in successive contests, meaning each of their last three have featured under 2.5 goals.

Salernitana’s attacking woes, meanwhile, have been going on all season, and Serie A’s bottom club have scored a miserable 23 goals in their 31 league games. Davide Nicola’s men have failed to score in three of their last five games, and are winless in their last 11 outings as they head for an immediate return to the second tier.

Under 2.5 goals the smart play when relegation battlers meet

Although Samp will rightly be considered favourites on home soil, 11 losses in their last 16 matches isn’t likely to send punters flocking to back them at odds-on, meaning alternative value must be sought.

With Sampdoria failing to score in their last two and Salernitana experiencing similar attacking woes all campaign, under 2.5 match goals could be a decent punt, while a nervy 1-0 home win could represent good value as a correct score play after Sampdoria beat Salernitana in November’s return fixture.
