Lecce and Sampdoria meet at the Stadio Comunale Via del Mare in Italy’s Serie A on Sunday, April 16th. Can Lecce get back to winning ways against bottom club Sampdoria this weekend? Read our Serie A predictions along with the latest odds for the fixture below in our detailed match preview.

Today's Predictions for Lecce vs Sampdoria

Two clubs in poor form collide in Serie A on Sunday when Lecce host Sampdoria. Read our top Lecce vs Sampdoria predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Both Teams to Score

With both Lecce and Sampdoria struggling to produce wins or even draws of late, neither side appears backable in the match result market and instead we’re advising a double-dip into the goals arena starting with both teams to score. Four of La Samps’ last seven matches in Serie A have featured goals at both ends, while BTTS has also landed in two of the last three encounters between Lecce and Sampdoria. Expect more of the same here.

Over 2.5 Goals

We close our football betting tips today with a stride into the overs realm and were backing the net to ripple over 2.5 times at the Stadio Comunale Via del Mare. With Sampdoria’s need for points becoming more desperate by the week as they aim to launch a late survival bid, their fixtures have been more open, and their last four games alone averaged a huge 4.5 goals per 90 minutes. More entertainment could be in the works on Sunday, and our second Lecce vs Sampdoria prediction anticipates more goals.

Lecce will kick off Sunday’s game as the expected winners with a home win currently coming in at 50.5% in terms of implied probability.

That outcome has an implied probability of 34.8% attached.

Lecce vs Sampdoria Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates, Lecce vs Sampdoria lineups and team news for Sunday’s match below.

Lecce

Lecce still have concerns over the availability of Kastriot Dermaku and Marin Pongracic, with both defenders rated as doubtful ahead of Sunday's game. Lecce lost for the sixth time in a row when they were toppled at home by Napoli last time out. They are now just five points clear of the drop zone in Serie A.

Predicted Lineup for Lecce: Falcone – Gendrey, Baschirotto, Umtitti, Gallo – Maleh, Hjumland, Gonzalez – Strefezza, Di Francesco, Ceesay

Sampdoria

Jeison Murillo is free to play again following a recent ban, though keeper Emil Aduero is injured while Abdelhamid Sabiri has a virus and is also sidelined. Andrea Conti and Ignacio Pussetto are both considered doubts and might not feature either.

Predicted Lineup for Sampdoria: Ravaglia – Gunter, Nuytinck, Amione – Zanoli, Winks, Duricic, Augello – Leris, Cuisance, Gabbiadini

Player to Watch – Gabriel Strefezza

Gabriel Strefezza was kept on the bench last week in Lecce’s loss to Napoli, though the club’s leading marksman should be back in the XI on Sunday. The 25-year-old has rattled the net seven times already this season, though he didn’t register when Lecce beat Sampdoria 2-0 in November.
