The Genoa side played their first game under new coach Dejan Stankovic in the previous fixture. It was not the worst debut for Sampdoria as they lost away to Bologna (1:1). Sampa broke their streak of four straight defeats but again failed to win. The Genoese have six losses in 9 rounds, sitting at the bottom of the Serie A standings.
The team was playing against Betis in the Europa League on Thursday and needed a win after a 1:2 home defeat to the Spaniards. However, the Giallorossi failed to retake three points, ending in a 1:1 draw. After four rounds, Roma has just four points. The Romans are now just third in the group and will have no margin for error in their remaining two games - against Bulgaria's Ludogorets and Finland's HJK - to advance to the playoffs.
Roma is performing much better in the Italian championship than in the European competition. The Red and Yellow have picked up victories in the last two rounds. First, the team took an away win against Inter (2:1), and then, they dominated their home win against Lecce (2:1). After nine meetings, Roma has 19 points and is just one point behind the UEFA Champions League competition.
Expert Betting Tips
Sampdoria is experiencing difficulties not only in goals this season but also in scoring chances. It is unlikely that the team under Dejan Stankovic will begin to change in this respect from the very first games. Therefore, Roma has a good chance of keeping their goal locked in the upcoming match. However, you can't guarantee a win for the Giallorossi. After all, they had a challenging game against Betis on Thursday and could lose points in Genoa.
