Sampdoria vs Genoa Match Preview
Sampdoria could still squeeze into next season’s Europa League with a strong finish to this campaign, but they are no certainties to get the better of their local rivals in this Genoa derby.
Ninth in the table entering the weekend, Sampdoria had a four-point deficit to bridge to the seventh position that could yield European football next term depending upon who lifts the Coppa Italia.
It’s admittedly a bit of a long shot for Marco Giampaolo’s side to earn themselves a crack at the continental competition, but they may as well have a go albeit back-to-back defeats so far this month have hindered their chances quite considerably.
And although Sampdoria are 11 points ahead of their stadium-sharers Genoa in the Serie A table, this will be no easy task because the Rossoblu have been grinding out some good recent results against teams much higher than them in the league.
For instance, over the past couple of months Genoa have beaten Lazio and Juventus at home and only last weekend they played 62 minutes with 10 men and yet still drew 1-1 away to second-placed Napoli.
Keeping things tight at the back is the modus operandi for Cesare Prandelli’s team and if they can do that again here, they could be able to hold their neighbours to a draw.
