U.C. Sampdoria welcome the visitors AC Milan in the Coppa Italia – 1/8 Finals. The match will be held on Saturday, January 12th, at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris (Janov).
U.C. Sampdoria’s December performance was great – the team were victorious in 5 of 7 clashes. That said, they even managed to oppose Juventus themselves in Turin. The team’s good record is attributed to their outstanding attack. In 7 December encounters, the hosts shipped 17 goals, netting in each round. On their turf, the team are scoring at least 2 goals in yet 4 consecutive matches. Their defense were not blistering only in the outings against Juventus, Empoli, and Lazio. In front of their own fans, the ‘Blue-Hopped’ allowed just 2 goals in 4 previous matches.

The visiting AC Milan gained only 1 win in the last 6 matches – yet over the Serie A outsider, by a minimum goal margin. The club’s fails in the attack are the reason for their bad streak. Gattuso’s side have not been very effective throughout the season, while in December, they managed to make only 5 goals in 7 rounds. The team’s calendar was not tough, but the guests did not succeed to net even to Bologna and Frosinone. Gattuso’s defense did not fail, but allowed to strong opponents. Fiorentina’s goal in the end of the match costed them 3 points.
Milan do not face a crisis, but they are very bleak these days. Their manager may possibly be fired shortly. Apart from this, following their meeting with Sampdoria, the team travel to Juventus. The priority will probably be given to the Turin match. The hosts are capable of winning Milan even if Gattuso plays with his best squad. ‘La Samp’, unlike their Saturday opponent, performed great in their last matches and made many goals. Their forward Quagliarella is in perfect shape now, scoring in 7 rounds in a row. Compare, for example, Higuain who netted only once in December. Therefore, the welcoming side are considered favorite in the coming head-to-head. Moreover, Sampdoria suffered only 2 defeats on their soil, while Milan celebrate no win in 5 successive outings.
Prediction for the match: U.C. Sampdoria to win with a 0.0 handicap.
