Sampdoria vs. Empoli Match Analysis and Prediction

Sampdoria will be looking forward to overturn their 3 match winless run as they host the relegation bound Empoli on Sunday 12th May 2019. The match will be played at Sampdori’s Luigi Ferraris and will kick-off at 14:00GMT.

With just 3 matches left for the season, Sampdoria is looking forward to finish among the top 10. However, their uninspiring performance in their last days of the season has denied them a chance of securing a Europa slot. However, after 2 consecutive losses to Bologna and Lazio, Sampdoria managed to pick an away point against Parma.

Empoli on the other hand is having a bad season. At number 17, they are looking at being axed from the Serie A action next season. However, with good luck, owing to the three matches left, they can tables around on their favor if they start winning from this weekend. The last week 1-0 win over Fiorentina has given them hope of remaining in the Italian top tier action.

Sampdoria has little to play for other than finishing among the top 10. With their lackluster performance of late, we believe the away team will find luck with them. This match is a must win for Empoli. Staying in the cold for a whole season or more is not something that they can take easily. They will try to do all it takes to avoid the relegation, starting this weekend. We believe there is great value in betting for Empoli.
