Sampdoria- Week 16

Atalanta vs. Palermo

 

Match Date: 21 December 2014 (local time)

Venue: Stadio Atleti Azurri d’ Italia

 

Atalanta tries to seek redemption at home after suffering a 3-0 loss to the online betting favorite, Lazio. With the said loss, the club becomes at risk of falling into the relegation zone. It hasn’t been very successful in its last 6 matches, snatching just a single win.

 

On the other hand, Palermo will be capitalizing on its big win against the football betting favorite, Sassuolo. The club is undefeated in its last 6 matches and currently occupies the 9th spot of the league table.

 

A down the wire match is to be expected in this upcoming match, with Atalanta maximizing its experience against the newly-promoted Palermo.

 

Prediction

Atalanta 1-1 Palermo

Sampdoria vs. Udinese

 

Match Date: 21 December 2014 (local time)

Venue: Stadio Luigi Ferraris

 

Sampdoria will draw inspiration from successfully forcing Juventus to settle for an even steven finish. The said win was a definite boost for the club knowing that it wasn’t the top pick of many football betting sites and that many are expecting the Old Lady to dominate.
Aside from the draw, La Samp’s confidence also stems from the fact that they were unbeaten in their last 7 matches at home.

 

As for Udinese, the club’s untimely defeat to Hellas Verona, gives them more reasons to perform well in their upcoming match. The squad just cannot afford to lose another match or it might kick them out of the top 10.

 

 

Prediction

Sampdoria 1-1 Udinese
