JUVENTUS VS SAMPDORIA PREVIEW & PREDICTION
The Bianconero table starts as a favorite due to the field factor and above all because it has a defined game structure that allows it to add good results. For this reason and knowing that it has a high hierarchy in offense, we believe that the bet “Juventus will score in the first half” has value in this opportunity. Remember that the Genoese can suffer in defense, costing them to score well on specific plays.
The bianconeros played against Real Madrid in the Santiago Bernabéu last Wednesday (victory 1-3 with a controversial goal of CR7 on the final, being eliminated from the competition). In the Italian tournament they beat Benevento 2-4 as visitors and they continue to take Napoli by 4 points. The goal of the squad is to recover emotionally from what happened in the Champions League and get into everything in the final stretch of the tournament. It remains a compact and effective on-off attack, beyond being explosive in many moments.
As a local, Juventus has reaped more than good results after winning almost all the matches they played for the Italian tournament (13 wins, 1 parity and 1 slip, scoring 37 goals and conceding only 5 on their fence). His last triumphs against his people were the following: 2-0 against Udinese, 2-0 against Atalanta and 3-1 against Milan. For the Champions League, they drew 2-2 with Tottenham and lost 0-3 against Real Madrid.
The Genoese equaled 0-0 against Genoa in the classic, reaching to harvest 48 units in the general table. The team has been strongly criticized by its president due to the lack of goal he has. Of course, still has chances to sneak into the next Europa League, being 4 of the sixth Milan. In spite of everything, it is still a complicated eleven to overcome when balanced between lines.
As a visitor, Sampdoria has registered various markers, missing some balance between lines to be more compact in this condition (4 wins, 3 draws and 8 falls, scoring 19 goals and conceding 29 in his goal). He defeats Atalanta 1-2 in his last outing, cutting a 3-game losing streak in a row (1-0 with Milan, 4-1 with Crotone and 2-1 against Chievo).
The last duel between both teams was a few months ago and the final result was favorable for Sampdoria as a local (3-2 in November last year). At the Juventus stadium, the Allegri team has won two consecutive games by a landslide (5-0 in May 2016 and 4-1 in October 2016).
PREDICTION: Over 2.5 goals @ 1.50
