Team News: Brescia
Emanuele Ndoj (Unknown Injury), Andrea Cistana (Ankle Surgery), Simon Skrabb (Shin bone bruise) and Dimitri Bisoli (Patella rupture) won’t be available for Brescia gaffer Diego López. Andrea Papetti cannot play in this game through suspension.
Team News: Sampdoria
Sampdoria boss Claudio Ranieri has to choose a team with limited availability. Felice D'Amico (Foot Injury) and Albin Ekdal (Distortion of the ankle) will miss out on this game. Bartosz Bereszynski will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
Our thinking is that Sampdoria are likely to be in control for long periods of time and should be able to convert a few of their chances.
However, Brescia might well find it a difficult task getting goals- but, we do see them converting at least once here.
We’re therefore anticipating a pretty comfortable 1-3 victory for Sampdoria at the end of this one.
