Udinese vs Sampdoria Match Prediction

By William Hall

Early strugglers Udinese welcome fast starters Sampdoria to the Cacia Arena this weekend in Serie A. Udinese come into this one off the back of three straight defeats to AC Milan, Torino and Roma while Sampdoria are yet to beat this season with wins coming against Fiorentina and AC Milan. With both teams needing points for very different reasons, this one could end to be an entertaining encounter. Read on for a full match preview complete with all our best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Udinese just haven't looked very good this season, losing five of their first six games and struggling to keep clean sheets. They can score goals, which makes me feel we could be in for a goal fest this weekend. Both sides have had plenty of goals in their games this season with five of Udinese's six going over 2.5 and having both teams scores and three of Sampdoria's doing the same. For me, my two bets for this game have been decided right there.

Udinese will be desperate to get back to winning ways this weekend with a long time being left frustrated, whereas Sampdoria will want to keep up this quality start to maintain the pressure on the so-called 'bigger teams' in the league. Another win in this one plus three points in their game in hand could take them as high as third in the league. Although it's early, it could do the players confidence a world of good. Below are my favourite betting tips and predictions for the game.

Both teams to score - 7/10

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

Udinese Preview

Udinese have played one more game than their opponents so far, playing six and losing five. It has been a shocking start to the season for the side who are usually a solid outfit in Serie A, especially at home. Two games have been player at the Cacia Arena so far, with two defeats and their only win which came in a 1-0 victory over fellow strugglers Genoa. A win is really needed to get Udineses season really up and running. Scoring goals haven't been a problem for Udinese, hitting the back of the net atleast once in everyone of their first six games. It is keeping them out the other end which is causing the biggest issue, having already seen thirteen goals go past them. A return to winning ways on home soil will be on the cards this weekend, but against an inform Sampdoria team, that could be easier said than done.

Udinese Team News

Udinese will have four players absent for the visit of Sampdoria with Stipe Perica (thigh injury), Assane Demoya Gnoukouri (heart probles), Larangeira Danilo (leg injury) and Silvan Widmer (arm injury) all out.

Sampdoria Preview

Sampdoria have impressed many with their strong start to the season. They have already been able to beat both AC Milan and Fiorentina who are some of the bigger clubs in the league, as well as a win at home to Benevento on the opening day. Back to back draws to Torino and Hellas Verona stopped them in their tracks slightly, but a 2-0 win over AC Milan in their last would have brought the confidence well and truely back. Their is never much shortage of goals in Sampdoria games, with over 2.5 goals coming in three times already this season. With Udinese also having a lot of goals in their games, overs looks a great bet this weekend. Fabio Quagliarella has been the main man for Sampdoria so far, scoring four goals in just five games. The Sampdoria faithful will be hoping he can keep this form up for as long as possible after scoring just 12 in the whole of the last campaign.

Sampdoria Team News

Sampdoria have just two players out with weekend with Emiliano Vivano (knee injury) and Jose Dodo (broken wrist) both sidelined.
