Sampdoria welcome Sassuolo at Stadio Luigi Ferraris this coming Friday for a match in the penultimate round of the current Serie A season.

Sitting bottom of the table, Sampdoria have claimed 18 points after 36 rounds, while Sassuolo have amassed 44 points. This places the latter as number 13 in the Serie A at the moment.

With four defeats in the last six games, the situation at Sampdoria could probably be a lot better. They need to improve their game or prepare for more disappointment as they face Sassuolo at home.

Sampdoria are not a high scoring team these days, as they only found the back of the net nine times in the last ten outings. That is an average of just 0.9 goals per game, as they conceded 24 goals. They managed zero clean sheets in these matches.

Sassuolo are currently not the most scoring team in the Serie A, as they only found the back of the net ten times in ten matches. This is an average of just one goals a game in which they conceded 16 times, an average of 1.6 per game. They managed two clean sheets in of these.

Sampdoria won the last two meetings against Sassuolo, as they followed up a 4-0 win by beating their upcoming opponent by a 2-1 score.

Sampdoria vs Sassuolo Prediction

Sampdoria Form

A solitary draw point prevents Sampdoria from having nothing to show for their previous three games. They came up short in a 2-0 defeat against Udinese, before drawing 1-1 with Empoli. They came up empty-handed once again when AC Milan ran out as 5-1 winners. In their last six Serie A matches at home, Sampdoria have one win, while they've drawn three and lost two.

Many people had Sampdoria down as candidates for the drop before the season, but rescue is still within reach, as the season nears its end.

Sassuolo Form

In their previous three games, Sassuolo drew 1-1 with Bologna, then lost 4-2 against Inter and 1-2 against Monza. In their last six away matches in the Serie A, Sassuolo won twice, while also recording zero draws. They endured four defeats in this run, with a scoreline from these matches saying 14 goals conceded and eight scored.

We trust neither defence to be able to keep their opponent at bay, when Sampdoria welcome Sassuolo on Friday. Goals should be flowing at both ends of the pitch.

Sampdoria won nine points from their last ten encounters with teams from the bottom six, like their upcoming opponent. They won two, scored ten and let in 16 goals. Sassuolo claimed six wins from 17 goals scored and 12 conceded from their past 11 matches against teams placed in the bottom six. This handed them 20 points to their account. Sampdoria are looking at a record of three wins, nine draws and 24 defeats in the Serie A this season. Sassuolo are looking at 12 wins, eight draws and 16 defeats in the Serie A.
