Sampdoria

Sampdoria have been dancing on the edge of Serie A danger zone for a few years and it looks like this could be the season they get relegated to Serie B. Investments are getting smaller and smaller and squad is currently one of the cheapest in the competition. This was also seen in first three rounds where Sampdoria collected only one point.

During this summer, Sampdoria sold Mikkel Damsgaard to Brentford for 15 million euros. Gianluca Caprari, Federico Bonazzoli and Albin Ekdal are also no longer there, while good replacements haven’t been brought in. Sampdoria spent around 5 million euros in this transfer period and that is not enough to achieve a solid result. Last game against Salernitana showed all the weaknesses and it won’t be easy to fix it.

Marco Giampaolo is already on the hot seat. If Lazio takes three points from Genoa, it is likely that Sampdoria will look for a new head coach. Dejan Stankovic was linked with this club last season and now that he is free on the market, it’s not impossible for him to cross paths with Sampdoria.

Lazio

Maurizio Sarri failed to implement all his ideas in Lazio game last season. However, it seems that this campaign will be significantly better. Claudio Lotito sold Joaquin Correa to Inter for 23 million euros and that money was invested in signing Marcos Antonio, Alessio Romagnoli, Mattia Zaccagni and two goalkeepers (Ivan Provedel and Luis Maximiano).

In first three rounds of the new season, Lazio proved to be a candidate for top positions. On Friday evening, they outplayed Inter and beat them 3:1 at “Olimpico”. Against Bologna, they showed character and made a comeback after conceding a goal. Lazio looks very good and we should expect them to fight for top 4 and a place in the Champions League.

In previous seasons, they often lost points against teams weaker than themselves. Visiting Genoa is a real opportunity to see if Lazio has matured in that segment, because if they return to Rome with three points in their pocket, they will confirm their seriousness. Given the crisis that Sampdoria is going through, Lazio’s chances are increasing.

H2H

Lazio won both matches against Sampdoria last season. In the last six meetings in Genoa, Lazio won five times and Sampdoria once.

Injuries

Andrea Conti, Simone Trimboli and Manuel De Luca are injured and won’t play for Sampdoria in this match. All players are available for Lazio.

Sampdoria vs. Lazio Prediction

Sampdoria haven’t scored a single goal in the first three rounds in Serie A and it is time for them to change that. On the other hand, Lazio has enough quality to punish all defensive mistakes of the opponent. The style of play of both teams is such that three goals combined are minimum in this clash.
