Match Preview
The frugal defence of Sampdoria will push for a fifth consecutive home league win over a Spal side struggling for goals, as they look to remain unbeaten against them in Serie A (SA) at home since October 1962.
Just three goals conceded this season (SA) is an impressive stat by the hosts, and they have lost just once in their last five matches (W2, D2, L1). However, with just two points won and one goal scored in their last three games (D2, L1), they will be chasing all three points here at home.
At home, their recent form is equally indifferent over the last five matches (W2, D1, L2). Against Spal, however, they have lost only once in seven SA home matches (W4, D2, L1), while also managing four clean sheets.
After a strong start to the league season with three wins in four (L1), Spal have since fallen to two consecutive losses, failing to score in both. They remain goal shy with just four goals in six matches, which is the third-worst scoring record in SA thus far.
Spal have traditionally struggled on the road and have lost three of their last four (W1). Indeed, they have won just three in 12 SA away trips this calendar year (W3, D4, L5) scoring just 11 goals during the run.
Players to watch: Gianluca Caprari (SAM) has a goal each in of his last two SA games, while Andrea Petagna (SPA) has scored twice in his last four (SA).
Stat attack: There has been a clean sheet in four of the last five H2H matches and in five of the last six H2H matches at Sampdoria.
Eight of the ten goals (80%) scored in Spal’s SA matches have come after the break, including all four they scored.
There have been under 2.5 goals scored in five of Spal’s six and in four of Sampdoria’s six SA games this season.
