Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Sampdoria and Genoa face each other in the local derby on Matchday 37. A win over their fierce rivals would see La Samp avoid relegation, but they will be happy with one point from the clash as well. The Rossoblu head into the derby following back-to-back defeats to the likes of Bologna and Genoa and they are eager to give fans something to cheer about in the season finale. There will be fireworks when the two teams square off against each other in the Derby della Lanterna, but seeing that Sampdoria want this win more than their bitter rivals, we predict that the “hosts” will pick up all three points from Sunday’s football clash. La Samp recorded three wins over Genoa in last four meetings between the two teams in the national championship and, taking everything into account, home win appears on the horizon this time out.
