Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Sampdoria will be aiming to make amends for a 2-0 loss to Cagliari when they take on Bologna in Genoa on Sunday afternoon. La Samp recorded three consecutive wins in October, but they have yet to have a reason for celebration in November. Both Augello and Tonelli are banned for the hosts, while Keita is sidelined with injury. The Rossoblu, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to Napoli, and seeing that they are likely to go for a win in Sunday’s clash as well, both teams to score betting option should be considered.
In their last meeting at Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris Bologna defeated Sampdoria 2-1, which was four consecutive meeting between the two teams with over 2.5 goals. The likes of Sansone, Hickey, Santander, Skov Olsen, Dijks, Mbaye, and Poli remain on the sidelines for the visitors, but Chile international Medel could recover in time to face Sampdoria.
Highlighted Player (Adrien Silva):
Adrien Silva is a Portuguese midfielder who began his career with French club Bordeaux, before moving to ARC Paco and ultimately Sporting still as a youth player. The 27-year-old French-born midfielder was given his Sporting debut in 2007, but it wasn’t until 2012 when he was given more room to show his qualities.
Having spent 15 years of loyal service at the club and having gone through all the youth ranks with the Portugal national team, Adrien Silva made a man for himself during the Euro 2016 when he played every single one of Portugal’s matches from the round of 16 onwards. His imposing performances allowed him to attract plenty of interest from Europe’s top clubs during the summer transfer window.
Premier League champions Leicester City were at the forefront for the player who played 29 games for Sporting last season, adding 8 goals in the process.
