Match: SPAL vs Sampdoria
Competition: Italy – Serie A.
Time / Date: 19:00h / 20 May 2018
Venue: Stadio Paolo Mazza
SPAL is a team that needs a win right now, and this time at least they are lucky to play in front their own fans against a team like Samp who produces negative results away from home.
They (SPAL) are now ahead of Crotone, and until they get a better result than Crotone (who is playing against Napoli) will retain their elite status.
At home, they are with one victory in last five (1W,3D,1L) in fact they are the team with most draws (8) …and another draw here will see them in Serie B next season.
Meanwhile, their opponent in this match have been in top six most of the season, but now after four losses from six games are out of Europe League spots. And even worst the visitors (good for home side) is that they are with six losses in last seven matches.
Bartosz Salamon (Yellow card suspension), Everton Luiz (Yellow card suspension), Thiago Cionek (Yellow card suspension), Alex Meret (Shoulder injury), Marco Borriello (Calf Injury), Federico Mattiello (Tear in the abductor’s muscle)
Nicola Murru (Medial collateral ligament injury), Duván Zapata (Muscle fatigue), Édgar Barreto (Knee Problems), Jacopo Sala (Muscle fatigue), Emiliano Viviano (Knee Problems)
The last away league win for Sampdoria against Spal came in 1958, a run that stretches back seven games (D4, L3).
SPAL have registered some very good results understanding that every point is critical, but here only victory is serving in a combat for another year of elite football.
After the guests are demotivated to play and lost their last three away games also did not manage to score in five of their last seven games, I recommend to bet on a win for SPAL.
-SPAL to win – 8/13 (@1.61)
