Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Sampdoria and Atalanta go head to head at Stadio Luigi Ferraris in what is expected to be one of the most exciting games of Saturday’s program. Sampdoria finished the last Serie A season in 15th place, meaning that they are eager to make amends for the unsuccessful campaign. La Samp produce much better showings at home than on the travels, but they face an uphill task in the season opener. Summer signing is likely to make his official debut against Atalanta.
The Orobici, on the other hand, missed out on a spot in European competitions last time out, and, no doubt, they are eager to make amends for the unsuccessful domestic campaign. The club chiefs have signed the likes of Ademola Lookman and Ederson in the summer transfer window, and seeing that they managed to keep hold of key players, away win should be considered. There are no absentees, neither in the home nor in the away side.
