The well-known Italian team with champion traditions is leading the modest life of the middle peasant in the elite division. Sampdoria occupies an intermediate 11th place in the standings. The management relied on the experienced Claudio Ranieri, who worked wonders at the head of the English Leicester. Sampdoria shows good football, but is hardly ready to progress to a challenger for the European Cup zone. This Italian team is sorely lacking strong players with leadership qualities. The team relies on experienced players who are only slightly diluted with young talents. Jankto, Quagliarella, Kandreva, Damsgaard, Audero, and Tonelli are the leaders of modern Sampdoria.
Sampdoria gained good momentum in the last matches. After a successful streak, Ranieri's charges managed to rise to the middle of the standings. Spezia does not even come close to showing such results, being a contender for relegation. The hosts of the arena look weak in terms of personnel and have a lot of gaps in their preparation for matches at the highest competitive level. The visitors look like clear favorites of the upcoming confrontation.
Prediction for the match: Sampdoria to win with 0.0 handicap
