Our prediction for this Serie A match:
There will be fireworks when Sampdoria and Genoa face each other in the Derby della Lanterna on Sunday evening. La Samp have been in a splendid form of late, with the team beating the likes of Fiorentina, Lazio, and Atalanta in the previous three league fixtures, and it is no surprise the odds for home win have been dropping. The good news for the hosts is that Candreva should recover in time to face Genoa in the local derby.
The Rossoblu, on the other hand, have been struggling to find their best form at the start of the season. Genoa have recorded only one win in the Serie A so far this term, and given Sampdoria’s brilliant form, we do not believe that the nominal visitors are going to grab something from the Derby della Lanterna. Sturaro is likely to miss the game with injury for the visitors, as well as Males who has been tested positive for coronavirus.
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.
