Today's Predictions for Sampdoria vs Spezia

Two relegation-threatened teams meet in Serie A on Saturday when Sampdoria host Spezia in this six-pointer. Read our top Sampdoria vs Spezia predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Spezia Double Chance

Sampdoria, who are a massive ten points from safety, look all but doomed already this season, though Spezia still have an excellent shot at survival and they could strengthen their push for safety with a positive result on Saturday. The visitors have lost only twice in their last seven games, and their fighting spirit could get them over the line when they face a La Samp outfit that has won only once at home this term. With that digested, our first Sampdoria vs Spezia prediction recommends siding with the visitors in the double chance market

Both Teams to Score

We close our football betting tips today with a dip into the goals markets and we think BTTS has a great chance of landing at the Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris. Both teams managed to score in four of Sampdoria’s last five games while goals were plundered by both sides in four of Spezia’s last seven Serie A assignments. Both teams also impacted the scoresheet when Sampdoria and Spezia last met in August (1-2) and the evidence suggests a similar outcome could be on the cards in this weekend’s rematch.

Sampdoria vs Spezia Team News & Injuries

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

Sampdoria

Keeper Emil Aduero is still out injured Andrea Conti and Ignacio Pussetto are both considered doubts and might not feature either. La Samp came from behind to earn a 1-1 draw and a point at Lecce last weekend, though that tie did little to improve their position at the foot of the Serie A table.

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

Spezia

João Moutinho has a muscle complaint and is a doubt for Spezia this week, though Peter Zovko has been ruled out. Emil Holm is also touch and go, while defender Ethan Ampadu is suspended and won't be able to feature. Ampadu was sent off for two bookable offences against Lazio last weekend.

Predicted Lineup for Spezia: Dragowski – Amian, Bastoni, Wisniewski, Nikolaou – Ekdal, Esposito, Bourabia – Gyasi, Verde, M'Bala Nzola

Player to Watch – Mehdi Bourabia

Moroccan midfielder Mehdi Bourabia still hasn’t scored this season for Spezia, though he came close against Lazio last weekend when he rattled the woodwork with an effort. The 31-year-old will hope to go one better against Sampdoria on Saturday.
