Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Roma will be aiming to restart the season in style when they face Sampdoria at their Stadio Olimpico. The Giallorossi are eyeing a spot in the Champions League, while la Samp are eager to escape the danger zone in the Serie A standings. Claudio Ranieri’s men suffered a 2-1 loss to Inter at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza in their first game after the coronavirus break, and it is no wonder they are seen as underdogs in Wednesday’s clash.
Since the Romans proved their worth in a 4-2 win at Cagliari, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts. Zaniolo is sidelined with injury for the hosts, while Pau Lopez is rated doubtful. Ferrari, on the other hand, is out of contention with injury for the visitors, but Fabio Quagliarella should recover in time to face Roma. The match will be played behind closed doors due to the fierce of coronavirus spread.
