Kick-off:
Venue: Stadio Luigi Ferraris (Genoa)
Last time out, Sampdoria ended a three-game losing streak with victory over local rivals Genoa in a rather uneventful Derby Della Lanterna with both sides managing just 7 shots between them. This victory catapulted them out of danger and the Blucerchiati are now 16th on the log, just 2 points clear of danger.

Juventus were also impressive on their last outing, proving to be too much for Udinese to handle, with talismanic forward, Ronaldo and his supporting cast, Dybala and Higuain in irresistible form. This win ended a run of particularly disappointing results against Sassuolo and Lazio and ensured they moved level on points with league leaders, Inter Milan, ahead on goal difference.

Juventus will be looking to end the league year on a high while Sampdoria, backed by vocal home fans hope to continue their mini resurgence, which makes for an enthralling game.

Sampdoria vs Juventus Team News

Struggling Sampdoria did their survival chances the world of good with victory over Udinese, their third in six matches after a shocking start to the season. In Juventus, however, they face a fearsome opponent who will be determined to fend off the challenge of Inter for their Serie A crown this season.

Sampdoria have managed just 13 goals in their 16 games so far, the 17th worst record in the league. Their 1-0 win over Genoa, however, brought with it their fifth clean sheet of the season, with three coming in their last six matches which might prove to be what they need to stabilize and kick-start their fluttering season.

Sampdoria will be encouraged by the fact they have recorded wins in their last two meetings at home, but things can easily go awry against this Juventus side.

Maurizio Sarri’s bounced back from their first league loss of the season to Lazio, trouncing Udinese 3-1, in a game which signaled the return to form of star man, Cristiano Ronaldo. A rather frenetic first half which witnessed three Juventus goals was followed by a dour second producing just the consolation goal scored by Udinese in the dying minutes.

A win is a win though, and Maurizio Sarri will have few complaints, particularly as it keeps his charges hot on the heels of Inter Milan in a game of who blinks first.

The Bianconerri boast the joint-third meanest defense in the league letting in just 16 goals so far. They are only the joint fifth-highest scoring side in the league though, netting just 29 goals. This is a rude awakening for a Juventus side used to overpowering opponents with goals and they will be looking to boost their scoring stats against a relatively weak Sampdoria side.

Injured or Suspended Players:

Sampdoria: Emiliano Bonazzoli, Edgar Barreto, Bartosz Bereszynski, Andrea Bertolacci, Albin Ekdal, Ronaldo Vieira.

Juventus: Wojciech Szczesny, Giorgio Chiellini, Sami Khedira, Rodrigo Bentancur.

Sampdoria vs Juventus Predictions

Sampdoria have been particularly poor defensively this season and they come up against an inspired Juventus side, hence this encounter promises a couple of goals.

Juventus will come out guns blazing as they cannot afford any slip-ups at this moment and it will be interesting to see how Sampdoria will stem the tide. My money would be on a Juventus win.
