After two successive wins in Serie A, Sampdoria will be looking to make them three in a row when they host Bologna at the Luigi Ferraris Stadium in the 24th round of the Italian top division.
Sampdoria Looking For Top Half Of The Table
After a bad spill of results, the hosts have found their form in the league with two straight wins in their last two games. Sampdoria have collected a total of 7 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in Serie A. Their last league match was against Milan away from home where they won 1-0.
Sampdoria are currently sitting in the 10th place in the league table. They have 30 points from 8 wins, 6 draws and 9 losses. The team scored 26 goals and conceded 29 since the start of the season.
Jacopo Sala is the only unavailable player, which means Marco Giampaolo will have a degree of freedom when picking his XI. Bruno Fernandes is battling to retain his starting spot from Filip Djuricic, who did well against AC Milan.
The Visitors Are Falling
The visitors have collected the same number of points as the hosts in the last five league games, the difference is form. The team have lost their last two games and will be looking to avoid the same fate here. Bologna have collected a total of 7 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in Serie A. Their last league match was against Milan at home where they lost 1-0.
Bologna are currently sitting in the 13th place in the league table. They have 27 points from 7 wins, 6 draws and 10 losses. They have scored 22 goals and conceded 34 since the start of the season.
Antonio Mirante will be out with a muscular injury, which means Angelo Da Costa will have a chance between the posts. Federico Viviani is struggling to find space in the starting after serving his suspension, with Erick Pulgar still favourite to start.
Head To Head
Bologna have won 2 of the last 5 meetings between the two teams. The last clash between the two teams was in September 2016 when the final score was 2-0 to Bolong with 10 men.
