Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris will be the centre of attention when Sampdoria and Parma take on each other in the Serie B derby. La Samp suffered yet another dip in form and they must be low on confidence following a 5-3 loss to Venezia. Leonardo Benedetti serves a one-game ban due to the accumulation of yellow cards as well as Pajtim Kasami, while Alex Ferrari remains in the recovery room.
The Gli Emiliani, on the other hand, are eager to retain to position in the standings. Parma are eyeing their seventh away win of the process and given Sampdoria’s poor defensive performance in the defeat to Venezia, we are tempted to put our money on the league leaders. There are no fresh injury worries in the away team ahead of the trip to Genoa. In the first half of the season the two teams played out a 1-1 draw.
