Lazio – Sampdoria

Lazio faces Sampdoria in a match from the 15th round of the Italian Serie A. Let’s take a look at this clash at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome.

Right now Lazio are 5th in the Serie A with 24 points won and a record of 7 wins, 3 draws and 4 defeats. They are just one point behind the 4th Milan, so the Top 4 and the Champions League zone are pretty close at the moment. In their last five games Lazio are not doing so well, winning just once against SPAL. They also made three draws and suffered one defeat against Inter.

In their last match Lazio recorded a third consecutive draw in the league, sharing the points with Chievo for a 1-1 draw. Sergio Pellissier opened the score for the Flying Donkeys, but Ciro Immobile equalized for Lazio. Until the end of the game Simone Inzaghi’s team tried to win the match, but Chievo defended well and prevented the visitors from scoring one more goal.

Before this draw, Lazio made two more draws against Milan and Sassuolo.

Sampdoria on the other hand are 10th in the Serie A with 19 points. They have a record of 5 wins, 4 draws and 5 defeats. In their last five games Samp won just once – against Bologna, doing one draw and suffering three losses.

In the previous round Sampdoria enjoyed a 4-1 win against Bologna at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris. The veteran striker Fabio Quagliarella scored a brace for Sampdoria, while Dennis Praet and Gaston Ramirez also put the ball behind Lukasz Skorupski’s back. Andrea Poli scored for Bologna, but it was far from enough for something more in the game.

These are our thoughts about the Serie A game between Lazio and Sampdoria at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome.
