Sampdoria vs Benevento Match Prediction

By Phill Barrs

Sampdoria vs Benevento betting tips & predictions

After an average tenth place finish last season, Sampdoria begin the new Serie A season at home to Benevento, who have miraculously been promoted in back-to-back seasons. Benevento won Serie C in 2015-16, and they ended up winning the promotion play offs after a fifth place finish in Serie B last term. They did lose, however, in their first official match of the season to Perugia at home in the Coppa Italia. They would lose badly as well, going down 0-4 to the Serie B side. Sampdoria did get off to a winning start in the Coppa Italia, winning 3-0 at home over Foggia. Edgar Barreto got things started with a goal in the 21st minute. They were made to wait for their second, but it eventually came on 76 minutes when Ginaluca Caprari netted. Four minutes later, the job was wrapped up when Dawid Kownacki scored to seal advancement. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting tips & predictions

Sampdoria have only faced Benevento twice before, both times occurring in the Coppa Italia. In each match, they won 2-0. That trend, at the very least should continue. Samp should be able to keep a clean sheet here as they face a side that were held scoreless by a Serie B side that they beat out for promotion.

Sampdoria are at 7/4 to win and keep a clean sheet, and that looks like a steal that is far too good to pass up in this situation as you just don't know where the goals are going to come from for Benevento.

If you're looking for a decent punt, here's one for you: Gaston Ramirez to score two or more is at 18/1.

Sampdoria have conceeded only 4 goals in their last 4 games against Benevento

Benevento saw over 1.5 goals in 8 out of their last 10 games played

Sampdoria Preview

Sampdoria have had an average season last term, but they have parts and pieces in this squad that can cause some serious damage in Serie A on their day. They have held on to striker Patrik Schick for now, while bringing in striker Gianluca Caprari, attacking midfielder Gaston Ramirez, and left back Nicola Murra, among a host of others. These signings should help them considerably this season, and they should certainly not have many issues at home to this Benevento side on the opening day of the season.

Sampdoria Team News

Marco Giampaolo only has one injury to account for- the broken arm of left back Dodo. The aforementioned Schick has returned to training in the last week, and could play a role in the affair if needed.

Benevento Preview

Benevento are already looking like a team that are well and truly above their heads in very deep waters. Benevento have done extremely well to get promoted like this, but it all has happened far too quickly for them. Losing at home to a Serie B side by four goals ahead of your Serie A debut is not a pretty sight, and it will not breed confidence in the ranks of the team at all. They will have a very hard time getting points in Serie A, and they might just go the way of Pescara last season. A good, respectable showing is needed at Sampdoria, or it could all come apart at a very early stage.

Benevento Team News

Marco Baroni has no suspensions or injuries to account for, but he will be pondering how he can change the team to prevent being hammered like they were in the cup match.
