Game Sampdoria vs Lazio Rim begins 25.08.2019 at 20:45 CET
Sampdoria won it first Coppa Italia match this season; it defeated Crotone away by 1-3. They received the first goal early on but by the halftime they turned the result up-side down. The match was debut of new manager Di Francesco, who mostly relied on tried and tested players from the previous season. Out of newcomers played stopper Murillo was on the pitch, who was borrowed from Valencia, and it can be said that the team which faced Crotone was in fact the strongest that Sampdoria has. Forward Caprari scored in the Coppa Italia but Gabbiadini could get the advantage now, while Ekdal might replace Viera. Depaoli has been suspended and Maroni is injured.
Probable lineups Sampdoria: Audero – Bereszynski, Colley, Murillo, Murru – Ekdal, Jankto, Linetty – Gabbiadini, Ramirez, Quaqiarella
Lazio saved the previous season by winning the Cup, while regarding the Serie A, they pretty much underperformed. They relaxed a bit in the finish when they fully focused at the Coppa Italia. The trophy is in display cabined and they qualified for the Europa League, but now they want a better result in the Serie A. There were several changes in the team but manager remains the same and Simone Inzaghi will continue to lead the team. Stopper Vavro was bought and he could play right way in formation with three stoppes. Reinforcement on the right flank is Lazzari and he also goes on pitch, while the rest of the team are tried and tested players. Lukaku and Marusic are injured and will skip the match.
Probable lineups Lazio Rome: Strakosha – Vavro, Acerbi, Radu – Lazzari, Leiva, Milinkovic-Savic, Lulic – L. Alberto, Correa – Immobile
Betting Pick: Sampdoria vs Lazio Rim
Both teams want to do better than they did last season, although it is questionable how much better they actually can. Samdoria is the host and we expect to play to win, while Lazio is a sort of favourite, at least on paper, and they should justify that with a goal or two.
Pick: Both teams to score
