Our football match prediction:
Despite taking the lead in Sunday’s football game against Udinese, Milan eventually suffered a 2-1 loss to Luigi Delneri’s team at Dacia Arena. The Rossoneri are on a three-game losing run in all competitions and they are low on confidence ahead of the visit of Sampdoria. Vincenzo Montella’s men aim to regain their spot in top five and the game against La Samp could be the turning point for the Stadio San Siro club. Milan were beaten by Napoli in their last home fixture in the league, but you should know that the Rossoneri are after their eighth home win of the season. Sampdoria came from behind to beat second-placed Roma at their Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris at the weekend, but seeing that they suffered a loss in each of their last three away games in the Italian top flight, we predict that the visitors will return home empty-handed.
