Our football match prediction:
Sampdoria have been in a splendid form in recent weeks. La Samp came from behind to beat Roma in their last home fixture in the Serie A and, to make things even better for the fans, the team spoiled Milan’s party at Stadio San Siro in Sunday’s football match thanks to Luis Muriel’s goal from the penalty spot. Sampdoria are brimming with confidence ahead of the visit of Bologna and seeing that the Rossoblu experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 7-1 loss to Napoli, we predict that the hosts will extend their winning run in the league to three games. Over the years Sampdoria have turned their Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris into a real fortress and you should bear in mind that they are after their seventh home win of the season. When the two teams met in Genoa last term La Samp recorded a 2-0 win over the Rossoblu.
