The last win for Sampdoria in a home game against Roma was back in 2017. Sampdoria have not been able to experience any kind of a victory against Roma since 2018. The Giallorossi have picked up four wins in the last five matches against this opponent, but they enter into this match on a disastrous form. Roma have lost back-to-back away matches against teams in the relegation zone. There is also little in the way of motivation for the team to get three points, as a European spot is now out of reach.
Both teams to score – yes
This match sees Roma trying to score for the sixth consecutive away match. Sampdoria are generally not good with clean sheets, as Claudio Ranieri’s men have only managed a single clean sheet in the last 16 matches across all competitions. Even though this is a fixture which has produced clean sheets for at least one of the teams in four of the last five meetings, this game might see goals at both ends.
Total goals over 2.5
The goal scoring form experienced by both teams has been quite good in recent games. At the same time, Roma and Sampdoria are guilty of making too many defensive mistakes. The lack of compactness and being complacent on the ball have led to opposition scoring against these two teams with ease.
Sampdoria vs Roma: Team News and Match Preview
Claudio Ranieri’s men failed to build on the back-to-back league victories after losing against an impressive Sassuolo team. The main objective for Sampdoria in the remaining five games would be to finish in the top half. This may not be a huge motivation for players, who have struggled to put together a good set of results. The team has Ernesto Torregrossa, Gaston Ramirez, and Fabio Quagliarella unavailable due to injuries.
Roma might not be mathematically out of contention for the European spots, but it would be very difficult for the Giallorossi to catch their rivals Lazio with five games left in the season. Lazio have the potential to open a nine point advantage if they win the game in hand. Roma have conceded 11 goals in the last six matches to make the task of picking points against relegation-threatened teams quite difficult. Pedro, Stephan El Shaarawy, Riccardo Calafiori, and Nicolò Zaniolo are unavailable for Roma.
