Udinese and Sampdoria are separated by only six points coming into the game. Even though there is a danger of Sampdoria slipping out of the top half in the final two games of the campaign, Claudio Ranieri’s men have shown sufficient fight to keep them in the hunt. In recent weeks, they have only suffered away defeats against teams in excellent form. Meanwhile, Udinese brought an end to four successive home defeats with a draw against Bologna. The team lacks the cutting edge to get a win.

Total goals under 2.5

In the last nine matches at the Dacia Arena, Udinese have been able to get more than 1.5 goals only on two occasions. It is a sign of the scoring difficulties faced by Luca Gotti’s men, who have averaged just over a goal per game throughout the campaign. Sampdoria are only slightly better off. In recent meetings between the two teams, a high-scoring match with over 2.5 total goals is a rarity.

Both teams to score – yes

Sampdoria have shown a fight to keep themselves in the top half. This fight is unlikely to disappear in the last two games. Luca Gotti’s men have conceded at least a goal in five consecutive home matches. Sampdoria, meanwhile, have failed to score in just one of their last six trips.

Udinese vs Sampdoria: Team News and Match Preview


Luca Gotti will want his Udinese players to conclude the 2020-21 season’s final home match in style, but the key will be to not lose more home matches. A remarkable 50% of the 18 league matches at home have been defeats for Udinese, who had a midweek match to forget against Napoli. Gotti will be hopeful that the heavy loss against Napoli acts as an impetus rather than offer a depressive mood to the camp, which will be without Gerard Deulofeu, Ignacio Pussetto, Ilija Nestorovski, Jayden Braaf, and Mate Jajalo.


Sampdoria will look to sustain their place in the top half. If so, this season could still be classified as a success after having finished in a disappointing and lowly 15th last season. Claudio Ranieri’s men could have remained in the hunt for Europe if not for the return of one win in the last four league outings. There are no injuries for Ranieri to deal with ahead of this game.
