Our match prediction:
Stadio Luigi Ferraris will host a clash between two relegation-threatened teams. Sampdoria recorded their sixth defeat in last eight matches, this time at the hands of Inter (3-1). The Blucerchiati were not without chances, but their lack of killer instinct was punished by the Nerazzurri, while Fabio Quagliarella just managed to mitigate the defeat with a last gasp goal. Frosinone snatched a point in their meeting with Lazio and are now just two behind their next opponents. A triumph would get them out of the danger zone, switching places with the Genoa-based outfit. In their last away fixture, the Canarini recorded the first victory on the road this season, which gives them hope they can repeat the success against the below-par Sampdoria. We will back the visitors in this clash, predicting a close win for the Canaries, especially bearing in mind that Vincenzo Montella’s charges are on a four-game winless run in front of their supporters.
