Sampdoria vs Udinese 27/01/19
27 January 2019
Sampdoria welcome a vulnerable Udinese team to the Estadio Luigi Ferraris looking to extend a five-game unbeaten home run against the Udine-based outfit (W3, D2).
The Blucerchiati have gone from three consecutive wins to three games without a victory (D1, L2), but they hope to get a positive outcome and keep up the pace with the European promotion zone. Marco Giampaolo’s players have won all of their last three Serie A home clashes, scoring eight goals while conceding just once in the process. Although La Samp scored over 1.5 goals per match in five of their nine Serie A home outings, they’ve failed to hit the net twice so far. However, Sampdoria’s impressive defense has managed to keep a clean sheet on four occasions at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris, conceding over 1.5 goals per match only once.
Meanwhile, the visitors are going through another mediocre season that has been highlighted by numerous ups and downs. Currently sitting four points clear of the relegation zone, the Friulian White-blacks have pulled off just one triumph in their last seven Serie A clashes (W1, D3, L3). What’s more, the Little Zebras are winless in their last six road encounters (D3, L3), having failed to hit the net on the past three road trips. Faced with enormous troubles in the final third, Davide Nicola’s men have scored over 1.5 goals per match only once in their previous ten meetings.
