Sassuolo vs Sampdoria Match Preview
A game between two teams who were beaten last weekend, and both will see this as a game where they can put things right. Returning home in front of their own fans, Sassuolo will see this as a game they can win to kick start their season. Sampdoria won’t feel out of this either, they will want to show some fight after playing very poorly last weekend against Lazio and although this is only the second game of the season, there is a little bit of something for them to prove here.
Sassuolo didn’t look too badly last weekend, but once again they look to be a team that will be somewhere around either mid-table or towards the bottom end. They are capable of matching up against most teams in this league, but struggle to really dominate anyone. They lack the potent attack needed to really put teams to bed and take chances, and that is something we think they will struggle with this weekend, as Sampdoria dig in and try to defend better than last weekend.
Sampdoria have a little to prove, which seems odd in game two, but it is because they were so poor last weekend. They have to bounce back here and show some fight for their fans. That is exactly what we think they will do, we think they will battle hard here and make things tough for the home side. We don’t believe they have enough to come to Sassuolo and get a win, but we do think Sampdoria can do enough to get a point from the game, so we are backing the draw.
Alongside that we are also backing under 2.5 goals in the game. We think this will be tight, Sampdoria will be desperate to defend better than we saw against Lazio, and we know they are capable of that. They should have a little success here, and keep things tight.
