Cagliari – Sampdoria Serie A Prediction and Preview: 9th December 2017
With 16 points caught in 15 rounds, Cagliari is doing well in the current Serie A season and does not feel like one of the bands that will fight to avoid relegation at the end of the season. Even if he does not necessarily impress through evolutions, the odds are at a higher level than the subsets of the hierarchy, such as Benevento, Verona, Spal, Sassuolo or Crotone, so keeping their pace until the end of the season, the students of Luis Diego Lopez are will certainly achieve the goal.
With a startling start of the season, defending especially on his own ground, Sampdoria experienced the defeat of the last round and in front of his fans, after 1-2 with Lazio. In fact, home results are those due to this place 6 which is currently occupied by Genoese in the Serie A rankings. In fact, “Il Doria” was truly unpredictable on foreign ground, where she got confused on the Verona pitch (0-0) or humiliated in front of theoretically inferior teams such as Bologna (0-3) or Udinese (0-4). Even so, apart from Linetty, injured, Marco Giampaolo will be able to rely on a full squad and we expect the offensive duo Zapata-Quagliarella to do his job with the guilt in front of a vulnerable defense.
In the last ten direct confrontations between the two bands, Cagliari was forced four times, Sampdoria in three other rows, while three more duels ended undecided;
The previous direct dispute took place in February this year and ended with a draw on “Luigi Ferraris”, score 1-1;
Sampdoria’s last success on the Cagliari field took place about ten years ago, a 3-0 in November 2007;
