Sampdoria play host to Genoa in Serie A soccer action from the Stadio Luigi Ferraris on Wednesday afternoon.

Sampdoria come into this match in 13th place on 41 points with a record of 12 wins, 5 draws and 17 losses following a 3rd straight win in the form of a 3-2 win over Parma last time out. In the win over Parma, Sampdoria fell behind in the 16th minute and almost went 2-0 down just eight minutes later but VAR would overturn Parma’s second goal due to offside in the buildup to the goal. Bartosz Bereszynski conceded an own goal to put Sampdoria in a 2-0 hole in the 40th minute but Julian Chabot would head home in the 48th minute to get Sampdoria on the board and Fabio Quagliarella would tie the game at two in the 69th minute. Federico Bonazzoli would fire Sampdoria 3-2 ahead seven minutes after that and a stunned Parma side would chase an equalizer that never came as Sampdoria slammed the door shut at full time. Quagliarella leads Sampdoria in scoring with 11 goals while Manolo Gabbiadini has 10 goals and Jakub Janklo has 4 assists for La Samp this season. Emil Audero is Sampdoria’s top goalkeeper, conceding 1.59 goals per 90 minutes with 9 clean sheets in 34 league apperances this season.

Genoa enter this game in 17th place on 33 points with a record of 8 wins, 9 draws and 17 losses following a 2-1 win over Lecce last time out. Antonio Sanabria opened the scoring for Genoa in the 7th minute and Genoa dodged a bullet just before the half when Lecce missed from the penalty spot. Lecce would find a tying goal on the hour mark, but a Lecce own goal in the 81st minute would give Genoa a lead that they would not let go of the rest of the way. Goran Pandev leads Genoa in scoring with 9 goals while Domenico Criscito has 7 goals and Paolo Ghiglione leads Genoa with 5 assists this season. Mattia Perin is Genoa’s #1 goalkeeper, conceding 1.65 goals per 90 minutes with 4 clean sheets in 17 league appearances this season.

I’d like to give Genoa the benefit of the doubt as they have more at stake here, barely clear of the drop zone. However, Sampdoria’s only lost once to Genoa since 2014, and Sampdoria’s also saved their best soccer of the season for the end when they’re already well assured safety. Either way, we’re getting decent plus money with the team in far better form, so I’ll take it and side with Sampdoria on the ML here.
