Genoa – Sampdoria (Serie A)

The Stadio Luigi Ferraris will host, this Saturday, another exciting Derby della Lanterna, between Genoa and Sampdoria, with both teams facing each other for the 12th round of the Serie A. When things seemed to be finally looking good for Genoa, the team fell into a disappointing defeat at the hands of SPAL, which kept them in the relegation zone. Sampdoria, on the other hand, are in a fantastic form and are four points clear of Fiorentina, Torino and Milan in sixth place in the league table, with one game in hand.

Geona are in 18th place with 6 points, result of 1 win, 3 draws and 7 defeats, with 10 goals scored and 17 goals conceded. After wining at Cagliari’s home, and drawing at San Siro against Milan, and despite losing at home against the mighty Napoli in a hard fought match, Genoa was showing signs of improvement and was expected a positive response soon. However, they fell at the hands of SPAL, a defeat that has put down the already little confidence of the team. At home is where the Rossoblu have won fewer points this season, drawing 1 and losing 4 of the 5 games played in the league, with 7 goals scored and 12 conceded, being at home where the team scores more goals, but also where they concedes more. Genoa come into this derby at a delicate time, where they have to face their neighbors and rivals in excellent form, a difficult time to turn around their awful moment.

In their last 5 official matches, Genoa has a record of 1 victory, 1 draw and 3 defeats. This sequence of results began with a 0-1 defeat against Bologna. This result was followed by a 2-3 victory against Cagliari, a 0-0 draw against Milan, a 2-3 defeat against Napoli, and in their last match, a 1-0 defeat against SPAL. Cofie and Spolli are both out due to injury.

Probable Lineup: Perin – Izzo, Rossettini and Zukanovic – Rosi, Veloso, Bertolacci and Laxalt – Taarabt and Rigoni – Lapadula.

serie aSampdoria, on their turn, are 6th placed in the league table with 20 points, result of 6 wins, 2 draws and 2 defeats, with 22 goals scored and 13 goals conceded. Sampdoria have been in a very positive form this season and come into this derby very confident, with their players showing improvements game after game. The Blucerchiati are already 4 points clear of Torino, Milan and Fiorentina have one game in hand, against AS Roma who are in 5th place with 24 points.

At the Stadio Luigi Ferraris, La Samp boasts of a 100% successful record this season, wining all 5 matches played here for Serie A, scoring 16 goals and conceding only 3 in the process. With AS Roma facing a difficult trip to Fiorentina’s ground this weekend, where they are likely to lose points, this turns out to be a perfect opportunity for the Blucerchiati to get closer to the 5th spot in the league table. Sampdoria are the 4th team in Serie A with more goals scored, and the 6th team with fewer goals conceded. La Samp are strong in attacking down the wings and have talented players who can make the difference at any time. Fabio Quagliarella and Zapata are the team’s best scorers, with 6 and 4 goals scored, respectively.

In their last 5 official matches, Sampdoria has a record of 3 wins and 2 defeats. This sequence of results started with a 4-0 defeat against Udinese. This result was followed by a 3-1 win over Atalanta, a 5-0 win against Crotone, a 3-2 defeat against Internazionale, and in their last match, a 4-1 victory over Chievo. Coach Marco Giampaolo will have the full squad available.

Probable Lineup: Viviano – Sala, Silvestre, Ferrari and Strinic – Linetty, Torreira and Praet – Caprari – Zapata and Quagliarella.

Genoa have only won 2 of their previous 8 direct clashes, drawing 1 and losing the remaining 5.
