Our football match prediction:
After rolling over their bitter rivals Roma in the Rome derby Lazio will be looking to extend their winning run in the Serie A to three games when they welcome Sampdoria at their Stadio Olimpico. The Biancocelesti are a real force to be reckoned with at home and seeing that a win over La Samp would see them clinch their place in top four, we predict that the hosts will go all guns blazing at Marco Giampaolo’s team in Sunday’s football match. Simone Inzaghi’s men have been scoring goals for fun of late; they look unstoppable at the moment and they are likely to give fans yet another reason for celebration this weekend. Sampdoaria are stuck in the middle of the table and they have nothing to play for in the Stadio Olimpico clash. When the two teams met in Genoa earlier this season Lazio recorded a 2-1 win over La Samp and the capital club are likely to emerge triumphant once again.
