Our football match prediction:
Sampdoria suffered a heavy 7-3 loss to Lazio at Stadio Olimpico at the weekend, but it has to be noted that centre back Milan Skriniar was sent off in the 18th minute of the game. La Samp aim to bounce back from the embarrassing loss to Simone Inzaghi’s troops and they are surely capable of beating Chievo Verona at their Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris. Experienced attacker Fabio Quagliarella scored a brace in the 7-3 loss to Lazio and the former Juventus man is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders. Following a 2-1 win at Genoa, Chievo played out a 1-1 draw with Palermo in the “City of Love” at the weekend. The Mussi Volanti occupy 12th place in the Serie A standings, meaning that the lack of motivation could prove to be the team’s biggest problem in upcoming league fixtures against Sampdoria, Roma and Atalanta. Anyhow, we predict that the hosts will emerge triumphant in Sunday’s football game.
