Udinese vs Sampdoria Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Udinese will be looking to continue their good home run when they welcome Sampdoria at the Dacia Arena on Sunday afternoon in the penultimate round of this Serie A campaign. Udinese suffered an unexpected 1-0 defeat on the road at Crotone last weekend despite the fact that they had 65% of the ball possession and 13 goalscoring opportunities. Sampdoria, on the other hand, were held to a 1-1 home draw by ChievoVerona, although Fabio Quagliarella gave them the lead in the 11th minute. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Udinese have been in great shape on home soil over the past two months as they are undefeated in the last five home league games. In addition, Udinese have won three of their last five home meetings with Sampdoria in the Serie A, conceding just once in the process. I’m backing Udinese to grab all three points, but I’m also expecting a low-scoring affair as both have struggled to find the back of the net throughout this Serie A campaign.

Udinese to win at 1/1

Udinese Preview

Udinese have struggled for fluency in the back end of the Serie A campaign, losing two and drawing once in their last three league outings. They did well to hold Atalanta to a 1-1 home draw a fortnight ago but suffered a disappointing 1-0 away defeat at Crotone last weekend. Despite the recent struggle, the Zebrette are still undefeated in five home league fixtures, conceding just four goals in the process. Udinese currently sit in 11th in the Serie A table tied on 44 points with the 12th-placed Cagliari, just three points off Sunday’s opponents. This means that a win here for Udinese would allow them to leapfrog Sampdoria into the top ten due to their superior head-to-head record. Udinese have conceded the same amount of goals like Sampdoria so far this season, but they have scored just two goals fewer than the Blucerchiati. The Zebrette only netted 44 goals this term, including eleven from their top scorer Cyril Thereau. Duvan Zapata has also been in fine shape throughout the season, helping the team with nine goals and two assists in his 36 league appearances. Udinese should feel confident ahead of this tie as they have won three of their last five home meetings with Sampdoria in the Serie A, conceding just once in this term.

Udinese Team News

Assane Demoya Gnoukouri, Gabriele Angella, Duvan Zapata and Ali Adnan are all doubts, but Seko Fofana, Samir Caetano de Souza Santos and Marco Davide Faraoni are all out through injury.

Sampdoria Preview

On the contrary, Sampdoria will look to end their six-games winless streak in the Serie A when they take on Udinese on Sunday. After a humiliating 7-3 defeat on the road at Lazio a fortnight ago, Samp only managed a 1-1 home draw against ChievoVerona last weekend. The Blucerchiati’s away form throughout this Serie A campaign has been the main reason for their struggle as they have only won four of their 18 league trips. Actually, Samp are currently on a three-game winless streak on the road in the Serie A, including their 7-3 loss at Lazio in their most recent league trip. Samp find themselves in 10th in the Serie A table with 47 points after 36 rounds, three points of the 9th-placed Torino. Samp have struggled to find the back of the net the entire campaign, scoring just 46 goals in 36 league outings which is definitely the worst attacking record in top ten. Fabio Quagliarella and Patrik Schick are the club’s joint top scorers with eleven goals each, while Luis Muriel has helped the team with ten goals and five assists in his 30 league appearances. Head-to-head, Sampdoria are unbeaten in their two meetings with Udinese in the Serie A, keeping a clean sheet in each of these.

Sampdoria Team News

Wladimiro Falcone, Angelo Palombo and Fabio Quagliarella are all doubts, but Emiliano Viviano is out through a knee injury. In addition, Vasco Regini is missing through suspension.
