Italy – Seria A-Sampdoria hosts Lazio
Sampdoria hosts Lazio in a match from the 15th round of the Italian Serie A.
These two teams are next to each other in the Serie A standings, which makes the game even more interesting than usual. Sampdoria are 6th in the league with 26 points, while Lazio are 5th wtih 29 points. Both teams have a game in hand as well.
Sampdoria have a record of eight wins, two draws and three losses since the beginning of the season. This campaign goes well for Samp so far. If they continue like this, they might return to the European competitions next season. It’s all about consistency for them. So far they are doing well.
In their last five matches Sampdoria won three times and lost twice. Including in the last round of the league, when Samp were beaten by Bologna with 0-3 away from home. It was one of their worst games in the Italian league this season, so most surely they’d want to forget it as soon as possible.
Lazio on the other hand have a record of nine wins, two draws and two losses. They were in a good run of consecutive wins in the league, but their run was stopped by a loss against Roma and a draw wtih Fiorentina in the last round. Lazio’s goal is reaching a qualification for the Champions League, but their last two results are not helping their cause.
Sampdoria could be without Karol Linetty, Ivan Strinic and Dodo, who are all having some injury problems before the match.
Meanwhile Lazio are without Nani, Davide Di Gennaro and Felipe Anderson, who are all injured and unavaliable for selection by the manager Simone Inzaghi.
This is a very good clash between two strong sides, so most surely it’s going to be a good football game.
