Roma vs Sampdoria Prediction 19 January 2017

Tournament: Coppa Italia
Location: Olimpico Stadium
Match date: 19.01.2017 at 20:00

On January 19 2017 at 20:00 in the regular game of the round of 16 of the Coppa Italia at the Olimpico Stadium the local Rome play against Sampdoria.

Roma won the previous game and managed to get on the second position due to the mistake of one of the leaders. Now they are just one point below the favorites of the league Juventus. The victory against Udinese 0:1 was the third one in a row for the Romans and the 14th one in the current season. Before that Roma outplayed Genoa 0:1, Chievo 3:1 and lost to Juventus 1:0.

Sampdoria have been in the elite division for a long time and moreover they have always been in the second part of the standings. Yet, they managed to stay in the league for all of these years. Sampdoria are not in their best conditions at the moment. They drew Empoli 0:0 in the previous game and prolonged their winless series to make it five games long already. In these matches Sampdoria lost to Napoli 2:1, Chievo 2:1 and Lazio 1:2 and drew Udinese 0:0.

The history of the latest five head-to-heads of the teams doesn’t show any obvious favorites in that pair. The teams drew once while Sampdoria won twice and Roma won twice. We must also admit that Roma only lost once at home since March last year and that game was in the Champions League against Porto. As for Sampdoria, they only won twice in Rome in their history and last time it happened was in 2015. Considering the fact that Sampdoria haven’t won in the away games for 9 matches already, we think that they have no chances at all on the upcoming game against Rome.
