Sampdoria vs Genoa Prediction 8 May 2016

Tournament: Serie A
Location: Stadio Luigi Ferraris
Match date: 05/08/2016 at 14:00

Sampdoria had a decent run at the end of the season and they almost secured their stay in the Serie A for the next season. They are now 5 points above their red zone. In their last 5 games, the hosts beat Udinese (2:0) and Lazio (2:1) , tied Sassuolo (0:0) and lost to Milan (0:1) and Palermo (0:2). As a result, with two games left to play Sampdoria are 15th in the standings with 40 points earned and 48:53 goal difference.

Genoa seem like they really lack motivation to show high-level performance in the rest of the season. They are 8 points away from the relegation zone, so they won’t drop no matter how bad they would play in the two upcoming matches. We should probably say the visitors lost their motivation few weeks ago. In their last matches they were beaten by sides who obviously needed those points more. Bologna won 2:0 and Roma won 3:2. As a result, Genoa are 12th in the league table with 43 points at hand. No matter what they won’t drop lower than 15th spot.

Sampdoria have been more successful in their games against their rivals. On top of that, they were victorious in their first match this season as they beat Genoa 3:2 on the road. We should also say Genoa won only 2 of their last 9 games, which is one of the poorest results in the league. Sampdoria in turn alternates wins and losses at home, they are determined to win another game after success over Lazio 2:1 in their last match.
