Sampdoria vs Crotone Match Prediction

By William Hall

Sampdoria welcome Crotone to Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris this weekend, and with both teams coming into this one in excellent form, we could be in for an entertaining encounter. Sampdoria go into the game off the back of an impressive 3-1 win at home to high-flying Atalanta which would have filled the squad with a lot of confidence leading up to this match. Crotone also got a good result last time out drawing 2-2 with Torino at home. That made it three games without a defeat for the side which has taken them well away from the bottom three. Read on for a full match preview complete with all our best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Sampdoria have looked very impressive this season, and although Crotone have been unbeaten the last few weeks, they have still been unable to pick up as many points as they would have liked against sides not as good as they will come up against this weekend. Sampdoria could claim a European spot come the end of the season if they keep up this kind of form. To only lose one game seven matches in is very impressive and a record they should be proud of even at this stage. Sampdoria have also been scoring a lot of goals whereas their opponents have lacked. I can't see Sampdoria going through 90 minutes against this Crotone side and not being able to break through and score at least one. For me, Crotone doesn't have much in reply to threaten Sampdoria, so for me there is only going to be one winner. Below are my favourite betting tips and predictions.

Sampdoria to win - 1/2

Sampdoria -1 Handicap - 7/5

Sampdoria saw over 1.5 goals in 8 out of their last 9 games played against Crotone

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

Crotone saw over 1.5 goals in 8 out of their last 9 games played against Sampdoria

Sampdoria Preview

Sampdoria have been very good of late losing just one game in their opening seven matches, winning four and drawing the other two. Last time out then ran out 3-1 winners at home to a stubborn Atalanta side. Having gone behind in the game after only 21 minutes, it was an uphill task for Sampdoria to get anything from the game. However, an inspired second-half performance from the side saw them bag all three points which took them up to 6th in Serie A. 34-year-old Fabio Quagliarella has been impressive for the team this season already scoring four goals in seven games. He is proving that age is just a number in the league and is on track to have his best season as a professional footballer, which would be some achievement for the Italian.

Sampdoria Team News

Sampdoria have three players out injured this weekend with Leonardo Capezzi (ankle injury), Emiliano Viviano (knee injury) and Jose Dodo (broken wrist) all sidelined.

Crotone Preview

Crotone come into this one having not seen defeat in their last three games which included a 2-0 win over Benevento and back to back draws away to SPAL and at home to Torino. This is arguably their biggest test out of those three games and one they will need to be up for if they are to have any chance in the match. It's been a lack of goals which has been hurting the side so far this season, scoring just six in their first eight games of the season. I can't see Sampdoria scoring this weekend which means if they are to get anything, they will need to get on the scoresheet and preferably multiple times. Crotone are always one of those sides who are near the foot of the table come the end of the season, this time around they will hope to secure their Serie A status way before the end of the season.

Crotone Team News

Crotone also have just the three players absent this weekend with Oliver Kragl (unknown), Aleksandar (muscle injury) and Marco Tumminello (ACL) all out.
