Serie A Preview: Sampdoria intend to bag home win against Genoa

Updated: September 10, 2013

Delegations in the Italian Serie A become more aggressive with every match day passing. Not surprisingly, they are some of the online betting world’s most followed clubs and the very reason why supporters continue making the sport very popular among different demographics. For this upcoming (September 16) tourney between Sampdoria and Genoa, the same audience enthusiasm will cloak the Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris in Geneva and should serve as yet another venue to bring together football betting customers throughout the globe.


Sampdoria had a frail start in the Italian top-tier league. While they managed to keep their defense strong in the first half, Blucerchiati lost sight of Juventus’ Carlos Tevez’s goal in the 58th minute. This allowed the visitors to debut in the season victorious and Sampdoria leaving the pitch broken hearted. In addition, Castellini was awarded with a red card after tackling the last few minutes of the same match in a crude fashion. Their second stint was not even a reliable opportunity to counter their earlier defeat, as their draw with Bologna 2-2 did not help them rank in the league table past the 14th spot.


Genoa’s curtain raiser was an insipid start for an otherwise massive league campaign. The side were not able to take at least one goal off their opponents, Internazionale, eventually losing the match in a 0-2 finish. Despite having a midfield capable of holding onto the ball, Rossoblu concluded their second stint in another defeat. Fiorentina had massive opening scores in the match, bagging three goals even before the 42nd minute. Genoa’s Gilardino scored the first goal for his team in the 54th minute, but was later cancelled by Fiorentina’s Rossi’s inning. Exactly an hour since the match started, Lodi scored Genoa’s second goal. Gomez, however, was quick to even this out. The match ultimately ended in a 2-5 score in favor of Fiorentina. With back-to-back defeats and a sizable number of goals conceded, Genoa unavoidably nose-dived into the table’s bottom three.


Prediction: Genoa’s opening disasters may get even worse with this meeting with Sampdoria. The latter are apparently more equipped to make good innings than the former. Fabio Liverani should put his best foot forward into this tourney or else, Sampdoria might see their opponents’ coach leaving his club.
