Sampdoria vs Spezia: prediction for the Serie A fixture
Sampdoria have not won for the last four rounds. Will they be able to interrupt this streak against Spezia on October 22? Our answer is in the prediction below.
Sampdoria had a very poor start to their Serie A campaign. They have earned 6 points in 8 rounds and currently are occupying 17th place in the tournament table, hovering above the relegation zone only on goal difference. Roberto D'Aversa's men lost to Cagliari in the last round (1:3), thus extending their winless streak to four games.
Spezia are doing slightly better than their hosts - they are 16th in the Serie A standings. After the first victory of the season over Venezia (2:1) in the fourth round, Thiago Motta's team went on a three-game losing streak, suffering defeats against Juventus (2:3), AC Milan (1:2), and Verona (0:4). In the last round, the Little Eagles got a strong-willed 2:1 victory over Salernitana and climbed out of the relegation zone.
This bet played in the last 3 games of Sampdoria.
In the last 2 head-to-head games, Spezia scored in the first half.
This score was recorded in 2 of the last 17 games of Sampdoria.
Sampdoria are in a precarious position and really need to earn points to avoid falling into the relegation zone. Spezia managed to win in the last round, but they also have plenty of problems, and on paper they have a weaker team than the hosts. We think that Sampdoria have a better chance here.
Our prediction - Asian handicap (-1) to Sampdoria.

At home Sampdoria are a threat to any opponent; Samp even took points from Inter Milan at home this season. The hosts will fight fiercely for points in this fixture, and Spezia are a relatively easy team to defeat. Moreover, Spezia have problems on the defensive, so we suggest betting on Samp's victory with a two-goal margin.
Our second bet - Sampdoria to win by 2 goals
