Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Stadio Luigi Ferraris will host Saturday’s football game between Sampdoria and Modena, the two teams who defeated Cittadella and Parma respectively. La Samp are eager to stay in the playoffs berth, but they will have to showcase their worth on the field. Daniele Ghilardi is banned for the match due to the accumulation of yellow cards, while Alex Ferrari remains on the sidelines with an ACL injury.
The Canarini proved their worth in a 3-0 win over Parma and given their signs of improvement up front, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. Both Shady Oukhadda and Edoardo Duca are sidelined with injuries, while Mario Gargiulo is a major doubt and he will be assessed ahead of the kick-off. In their last meeting in Genoa the two sides played out a 1-1 draw and we predict that history is going to repeat itself.
