Our football match prediction:
Sampdoria produced a fine display in Sunday’s football game against Fiorentina and they were on the verge of beating the Viola at their Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris. However, Babacar scored a late equalizer for the visitors and La Samp eventually dropped two points in the clash against Paulo Sousa’s men. However, Sampdoria have been in a fine form in the second half of the season and, as a result, they sit in the top half of the standings ahead of the trip to Reggio Emilia. Sassuolo did well to hold Atalanta to a 1-1 draw at the weekend and they are on the right track to secure the Serie A survival. It seem as both teams would be happy with one point from Saturday’s match at MAPEI Stadium – Citta del Tricolore and we predict that they will share the spoils on day 32. Sassuolo and Sampdoria played out a goalless draw in Reggio Emilia last season.
