Juventus vs Sampdoria Prediction: Serie A Match

Juventus saw their long winning run in Serie A brought to an end last weekend, but they will be bidding to get back on track this weekend when they host Sampdoria. It could be a perfect opportunity to claim a win, as the visitors sit bottom of the standings.


Serie A Preview

Juventus appear to be still fighting for a European finish in Serie A this term, and they had been closing on the top six with every passing week after going on a long winning run. However, that period of success was halted last weekend, with the Old Lady falling to a 1-0 win on the road against AS Roma. But, there will still be hope that they could edge back into a top six place, as they only have seven points to make up on Atalanta.

Juventus has won the third-highest amount of games this term, and they boast one of the best defensive records having allowed just 20. It will be interesting to see whether the club ultimately opt to prioritise the Europa League over the coming weeks, as the European competition could offer them their best chance of getting back into the Champions League. 

Sampdoria finds themselves with a mountain to climb at this stage of the season, as they sit bottom of the standings after 25 rounds of fixtures. They have picked up just two wins so far this term, and have accumulated more losses than any other side in Serie A. That record sees them sit nine points from safety, and they are without a win in their last five matches. 

They did at least avoid a third straight loss in their most recent fixture, as they played out a 0-0 draw against Salernitana. However, they will need to show much more in the final third to pose any questions of Juventus this weekend. 

Juventus vs Sampdoria Head to Head 

Juventus has gone seven games without defeat against Sampdoria coming into this fixture, winning on six occasions over that period. However, the previous meeting between the teams this term was a tight affair, as the points were shared following a 0-0 draw.

Juventus vs Sampdoria Prediction 

Juventus will be heavily favoured to get back to winning ways this weekend, and it is easy to see why given the recent form of Sampdoria. We find it challenging to see any other outcome than a win for the Old Lady.
