Sampdoria vs FC Torino / Serie A– This Sunday’s match of the 11th round of Italian Serie A brings us duel between 7th-placed Sampdoria and 10th-positioned Torino, which has one point fewer at the moment.

Sampdoria vs FC Torino begins 04.11.2018 at 15:00 CET
It is fact that Sampdoria rarely losses lately but after four-game unbeaten streak of two wins and two draws it was nevertheless defeated last weekend by Milan 3-2 away, despite having a lead of 2-1. Still, Sampdoria occupies solid 7th place in the Serie A table and has the same number of points like 6th-positioned Fiorentina. Sampdoria lost just one out of five home matches played so far and that happened near the end of Semptember when Inter defeated them in Genoa.
True, in one period Sampdoria had great problems with goal scoring but it nevertheless managed to score two against Milan, and we expect to play even more offensively now against Torino. Regarding problems with absences, from before out of action due to injury is stopper Regini, while not fully ready defender Murru and forward Defrel are questionable for this match.
Probable lineups Sampdoria: Audero – Bereszynski, Tonelli, Andersen, Sala – Praet, Ekdal, Linetty – Saponara – Caprari, Quagliarella
Unlike Sampdoria, which unbeaten streak was interrupted in the previous round of the Serie A, Torino players go to Genoa after five-game unbeaten streak. True, team led by manager Mazzarri drew three times in the period and won only teams positioned near the end of table; Chievo away and Frosinone at home
After that they firstly drew away with Bologna 2-1 and at home with Fiorentina 1-1, which indicates that their forwards finally play as it is expected from them, while defence still have plenty of room for progress. Still, Mazzarri has announced that he will send on the pitch in Genoa probably the same 11 players who faced Fiorentina, especially as defenders Lynaco and Ansaldi are still not fully ready.
Probable lineups FC Torino: Sirigu – Izzo, N'Koulou, Djidji – De Silvestri, Baselli, Rincon, Meite, Aina – Falque, Belotti
