Today's Predictions for Sampdoria vs Bologna

Sampdoria have won only one of their last seven assignments in Serie A ahead of their clash with Bologna on Saturday. Read our top Sampdoria vs Bologna predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Bologna Draw no Bet

Bologna slipped a surprising defeat at home to Monza last time out, though they have claimed seven points from the nine on offer directly before that and another positive result could be in the offing at Sampdoria. La Samp are in second-last place in Serie A and a run of just one victory in seven assignments since Christmas has kept them in their perilous position. Our first Sampdoria vs Bologna prediction tips the visitors for success; however, some caution is advised. Sampdoria held Inter at home last time out, so side with Bologna in the draw no bet stakes.

Under 2.5 Goals

With just ten goals in 22 Serie A fixtures so far this season, Sampdoria are the lowest-scoring outfit in the entire division, though they have tightened up defensively since the New Year and five of their last six league matches have featured under 2.5 goals as a consequence. Bologna aren’t renowned for their cutting edge either, even with the injured Marko Arnautovic fit again, so back under 2.5 goals to be lodged at the Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris.

Sampdoria vs Bologna Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates, Sassuolo vs Napoli lineups and team news for Saturday’s game below.

Sampdoria

Andrea Conti is out until next month with an ankle complaint, while attacker Ignacio Pussetto is a doubt ahead of Saturday's game. La Samp carved out a point at home to Inter Milan in their last test after a 0-0 draw. Sampdoria were somewhat fortunate not to lose having conceded 25 shots, however.

Predicted Lineup for Sampdoria: Audero – Murillo, Nuytinck, Amione – Zanioli, Cuisance, Winks, Aguello, Djuricic – Gabbiadini, Lammers

Bologna

Defender Adama Soumaoro is out injured, as are attackers Joshua Zirkzee, Nicola Sansone and midfielder Nicola Bagnolini. Kevin Bonifazi is also a doubt at the back. Bologna dropped down to 11th spot following their 1-0 loss to Monza in their last Serie A skirmish.

Predicted Lineup for Bologna: Skorupski – Cambiaso, Posch, Sosa, Lykogiannias – Aebischer, Schouten – Orsolini, Dominguez, Kiriakopoulos – Arnautovic

Player to Watch – Emil Audero

Emil Audero was in inspired form between the sticks for Sampdoria on Monday evening when the keeper made five saves to thwart a frustrated Inter outfit. Audero was La Samp’s man-of-the-match in that 0-0 draw and the 26-year-old will need to be in top form again if Sampdoria are to keep another clean sheet on Saturday.

Starting Lineups

Official lineups are usually released approximately one hour before kick-off.
