Sampdoria welcome Verona for a clash in the Serie A at Stadio Luigi Ferraris this coming Sunday.

Sitting bottom of the table, Sampdoria have claimed 12 points after 26 rounds, while Verona have amassed 19 points. This places the latter as number 18 in the Serie A at the moment.

The mood at Sampdoria is probably far from ideal, following 3 defeats in the last 6 matches across all tournaments recently. The home side needs to improve performances against Verona to turn the situation around.

Sampdoria scored five times in the last ten outings for an average of 0.5 goals a game. They conceded 15 and managed two clean sheets.

Verona are currently not the most scoring team in the Serie A, as they only found the back of the net eight times in ten matches. This is an average of just 0.8 goals a game in which they conceded eight times, an average of 0.8 per game. They managed four clean sheets in of these.

The last time these two teams squared up, Verona ran out 2-1 winners which they surely won't mind doing again at Stadio Luigi Ferraris.

Sampdoria vs Verona Prediction

Sampdoria Form

A draw is the best Sampdoria can show from their last three games, where they came up short in a 1-0 defeat against Lazio. A0-0 draw with Salernitana followed before they were defeated 4-2 by Juventus. Sampdoria are without a win in their last six Serie A matches on home soil, which produced a record of two draws and four defeats, in which they conceded seven and scored one goals.

Verona Form

Verona didn't manage a single away win in their last six Serie A matches, but managed three draws, while suffering three defeats. They conceded six and scored two goals themselves.

Sampdoria find it just as tough as Verona to get on the scoreboard these days, and a match short on goal looks highly likely, when they clash at Stadio Luigi Ferraris.

No side scored fewer times on home soil this season, than the three goals Sampdoria so far pulled off, while they also allowed 18 goals against. Verona have been terrible at getting on the scoresheet on their travels in the Serie A. They scored a lousy six times, handing them the worst offensive record away from home, whilst also allowing 16 goals against.

Sampdoria won four points from their last six encounters with teams from the bottom six, like their upcoming opponent. They won one, scored three and let in ten goals. Verona claimed four wins from nine goals scored and five conceded from their past seven matches against teams placed in the bottom six. This handed them 13 points to their account. Sampdoria so far pulled off a record of two wins, six draws and 18 defeats in the Serie A this season. Verona show off four wins, seven draws and 15 defeats in the Serie A.
