Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Sampdoria will be aiming to bounce back from a heavy 5-1 loss to Inter when they take on Spezia in the Serie A round 36. La Samp have been having their ups and downs of late, with the team continuing to produce much better showings at home than on the travels. All Damsgaard, Ekdal, Yoshida, and Verre are pushing for a start. Spezia, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 4-1 loss to Napoli.
The Bianconeri are only three points clear of the relegation zone, and we are positive that they will leave their hearts on the field. However, beating Sampdoria in Genoa is easier said than done, and we believe that punters can find value in betting on draw. Nzola returns from suspension, while both Leo Sena and Krapikas are out of contention through injuries. There should be no absentees in the home team.
