S.P.A.L. vs Sampdoria: Match preview
The last match of Round 11 of Serie A will be played between the S.P.A.L. and Sampdoria, the two teams that are helding the last two positions and the teams that will fight hard to survive until the end. S.P.A.L. is expected to be where it is, while Sampdoria has disappointed with all its bad games so far.
S.P.A.L. team news:
S.P.A.L. has a lot of problems this season, and by far the best indicator of that is the penultimate position on the Italian Serie A. They will fight for the survival in the company of the best. What is very interesting is that the S.P.A.L. football players have only seven points. They have achieved two big victories, first against Lazio and then against Parma, but also one draw against Napoli, which certainly was a big surprise.
However, when it comes to away games, S.P.A.L. has a lot of problems and so far they have suffered five defeats in five matches. The fact that is devastating is that S.P.A.L. has not scored any goals in those matches. In the last round, S.P.A.L. played a solid away game against Milan, but in the end they suffered minimal defeat.
It is interesting that S.P.A.L. and Sampdoria have met only five times so far and in these matches S.P.A.L. has only one triumph, while in the remaining four matches the team from Genoa celebrated.
Probable lineup: Berisha; Cionek, Vicari, Igor; Strefezza, Murgia, Missiroli, Kurtic Reca; Petagna, Paloschi.
Sampdoria team news:
Undoubtedly, Sampdoria football players are the most unpleasant surprise of this year’s edition of Serie A. It is certain that no one expected this team to be in the last position on the table after ten games played. Prior to the start of the season, Sampdoria had an ambition to attack the spot that leads to the Europa League next year, but it was clear after the first few rounds that it would be an impossible mission.
After a series of poor results, coach Euzebio Di Francesco, who spent only a few weeks on the Genoa bench was fired. Claudio Ranieri took his place, but the general impression is that not even a famous Italian expert has changed anything.
Namely, since Ranieri was named as the successor, this team has failed to record any triumphs. They have therefore twice drawn on their ground, first against Roma and then against Sassuolo in the last round.
In that match, the Genoa team came to a tie at the very end of the match, while before that they suffered a defeat against Bologna when it was 2: 1.
What is important is the fact that in their five matches so far, Sampdoria has only one defeat against SPAL.
Probable lineup: Audero; Depaoli, Murillo, Colley, Murru; Rigoni, Ekdal, Vieira; Ramirez; Caprari, Gabbiadini
As for this match, we give the slightest advantage to Sampdoria. They’ve been playing a bit better lately. Rannieri is trying his best to help the team as much as possible. We think it may even be time for the first win after just over a month. However, we expect a careful and closed game on both sides.
