Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Pisa and Sampdoria square off against each other at Arena Garibaldi – Stadio Romeo Anconetani in what is expected to be one of the most exciting games of Saturday’s program. Pisa aim to move closer to the playoffs berth and they are likely to go all guns blazing at La Samp. Arturo Calabresi misses out through suspension, while Matteo Tramoni has yet to overcome his injury.
The visitors, on the other hand, played out a 2-2 draw with Modena in their last league match. As Sampdoria are eager to return to winning ways as well, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. The likes of Ferrari, Borini, and Pedrola are out of contention with injuries, while Gerard Yepes is banned for the match due to the accumulation of yellow cards. Manuel De Luca is widely expected to lead the line for the visiting team.
