Match Preview

Despite sharing a basement with their opponents, Spal can feel somewhat confident, considering that all seven of their Serie A (SA) points and goals scored have been registered on home turf. Additionally, five of those seven goals have come before half-time, showing form for a quickfire start here.
However, five of Spal’s seven league losses have been accompanied by a scoring blank. They have also struggled to recover from conceding first lately, losing on six of the last eight instances they have done so in a league fixture. Nevertheless, they have a mixed record in three such occasions in SA home fixtures (W1, D1, L1).
A bottom-three side in terms of goals scored (six) and conceded (19) as well as points, Sampdoria have conceded first in eight league games, going on to lose seven of those matches – including each of their five SA road trips. Perhaps equally damning is the fact that Sampdoria have conceded at least twice in each of their five SA away fixtures.
Losing at half-time has also been a common occurrence with Sampdoria, occurring in seven of their ten SA fixtures. Sampdoria are also without a first-half league goal this season and are the only top-flight team without a first-half win (HT record: D3, L7).
Players to watch: Spal’s Andrea Petagna is yet to score against Sampdoria in five SA matches, while Sampdoria’s Fabio Quagliarella has four goals and two assists in four SA matches against Spal.
Stat attack: Three of Spal’s four SA home games have been decided by a solitary goal.
Spal have allowed their opponents to score first in eight of their ten SA fixtures.
Sampdoria have conceded over 1.5 goals in nine (and exactly two in five) of their last ten SA road trips.
