All you need to know about Sampdoria vs Empoli


The home side hasn't fared well in recent meetings between these two clubs

Sampdoria always knew that a trip to the San Siro to face AC Milan was going to be tricky but it was made even tougher when Leao opened the scoring for the hosts in the 8th-minute. Sampdoria couldn't carve out an equaliser during the remaining 82-minutes and that solitary goal proved enough to win the game for the home side. Sampdoria sit two places and 2pts above the drop zone heading into the next round of fixtures, making a win vital this weekend.

Sampdoria Predicted Lineup – Falcone, Bereszyński, Conti, Murru, Colley, Magnani, Candreva, Rincón, Thorsby, Sensi & Caputo

Empoli took the lead at home against Cagliari in the 38th-minute through top scorer Pinamonti but failed to add to their tally and it ended up costing the hosts a victory. Cagliari always carried a threat going forward and managed to equalise through Pavoletti with 6-minutes left on the clock. Even with the disappointment of that draw, Empoli sit 11th in the table and could move into the top 10 if they better Torino's result against Juve.

Empoli Predicted Lineup – Vicario, Romagnoli, Stojanović, Parisi, Viti, Bandinelli, Bajrami, Żurkowski, Asllani, Cutrone & Pinamonti
