Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Sampdoria will be looking to make amends for back-to-back losses to Roma and Bologna when they face Salernitana on Matchday 33. La Samp are only seven points clear of bottom three, meaning that Saturday’s clash is of big importance for the home team. Even though all Gabbiadini, Conti, Giovinco, Ekdal, and Damsgaard remain in the recovery room, home win should be considered as Sampdoria will not have a better chance than this to get back on course.
Davide Nicola’s troops, on the other hand, are on a three-match losing run, and seeing that they will almost certainly drop to the Serie B, home win should be considered. Both Fazio and Bonazzoli are back from suspension, while Ruggeri, Mousset, Perotti, and Coulibaly are likely to miss the game with injuries. In the first half of the season Sampdoria defeated Salernitana 2-0.
