Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Sampdoria did remarkably well to beat Inter at home ground on day 10 and they managed to pick up one point from their last league match against Fiorentina (1-1). La Samp are on the right track to escape the danger zone and they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in Sunday’s football game against Sassuolo. Sampdoria are a real force to be reckoned with at home and considering that the Neroverdi have been struggling at the back of late, we predict that the hosts will emerge triumphant in the Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris clash. Sassuolo suffered a heavy 3-0 loss to Atalanta at home on day 12 and they are unlikely to grab something from Sunday’s game against Marco Giampaolo’s charges. The Neroverdi have suffered four defeats on the road this season and they failed to keep a clean sheet in previous five away fixtures in the league.
