Our match prediction:
High flying Sassuolo appear to be finally showing signs of slowing down, with back to back defeats to Genoa and Fiorentina enough to suggest their form is on the downtrend. This is by no means a cause for concern, with the Neroverdi having all but secured a place in the Serie A top 10, but they will want to return to winning ways against Sampdoria and further surpass the pre-season predictions. The fact that the Blucerchiati hope to make amends for the home loss to AC Milan should guarantee us a great game of football in Reggio Emilia, especially since they appear to have improved their away form of late. Sampdoria ended a four-match losing run on the road by hammering Hellas Verona 3-0, before holding Empoli and Fiorentina to 1-1 draws, and we would not be surprised if they make it three on the bounce.
