Match Date: 06 April 2014 (local time)

Venue: Stadio Olimpico

 

Lazio made a stunning come back from their disappointing Genoa loss with a successful thriller against Parma. The victory also tightened their grip on the 8th spot of the Serie A table.
Several minutes before the final whistle, Antonio Candreva nailed a right footed shot that stole the limelight from Parma.

 

Lazio has been struggling to achieve consistency during its last 6 matches. Within the said encounters, the club has been trying to secure consecutive wins, but to no avail. However, it seemed that things have changed for Lazio after securing the said win. It looked like, it just had the moral boost that it badly needed.

 

Indeed, it was not an easy victory for Lazio. The club played outside their comfort zone. But perhaps if there is one thing that pushed the squad to win, this is no other than the support coming from its small contingent. It is therefore not surprising to see Lazio’s head honcho, Edy Reja dedicate their recent win to their supporters. With the said victory and with the upcoming match against Sampdoria, rest assured that Reja and his boys shall get the utmost support that they need.

 

Sampdoria is never an easy opponent. Winning over them becomes even more difficult when their previous matches did not go their way. They are deadlier than what is expected.

 

Just recently, Sampdoria had to share points with Fiorentina after their match ended in a scoreless stalemate. The club’s head honcho, Sinisa Mihajlovic, was of course, dissatisfied with the results and stressed that the referee’s decision hurt them. What made the victory even more difficult to accept was the fact that Sampdoria dropped to the 12th spot and is struggling to go back to the top 10 again.

 

Prediction:  Draw

Lazio may have a better rank, but Sampdoria has a better form. Given this aspect at hand, a draw is highly possible. At 12BET football betting odds for a draw are valued at 3.34.
