Sampdoria will be hosting visiting club Udinese at Stadio Luigi Ferraris in this Serie A match on Sunday.
Full predictions, stats & game poll for the Sampdoria v Udinese match are shown here (inc. the best betting odds).
Sampdoria won’t want a repeat of their last result here after the 1-0 Serie A losing effort in their last game against Empoli.
In that match, Sampdoria managed 50% possession and 16 shots at goal with 7 on target. For their opponents, Empoli had 16 attempts at goal with 5 of them on target. Tyronne Ebuehi (55') was the scorer for Empoli.
It’s been seldom in recent times where Sampdoria have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. The facts show that Sampdoria have seen their defence breached in 6 of their previous 6 matches, shipping 9 goals on the way. We will have to see if that trend will be continued on into this next match.
Their past results show that Sampdoria:
- haven't won against Udinese in their previous 2 matches in the league.
- have not won at home in their last 9 league matches. Such a poor run.
After tasting defeat last time out to Bologna in Serie A competition, Udinese will be hoping to turn things around here.
In that game, Udinese had 51% possession and 20 shots at goal with 4 on target. The only player to score for Udinese was Beto (10'). At the other end, Bologna had 15 attempts on goal with 2 of them on target. Nicola Sansone (59') and Stefan Posch (80') scored for Bologna.
Looking at their form, and Udinese have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 games, seeing their opponents hit 9 goals in all. Defensively, Udinese have not been doing too well.
Their past results show that Udinese:
- have not beaten Sampdoria when they have played them away from home in the previous 9 matches in the league. An awful away record.
- have not won away from home in their last 5 league matches.
Head to head
Checking on their prior head-to-head clashes stretching back to 24/11/2019 shows us that Sampdoria have won 4 of these and Udinese 1, with the number of drawn matches being 1.
A total of 20 goals were scored between the two sides throughout the course of those matches, with 12 of them from i Blucerchiati and 8 being from Bianconeri Friuliani. This gives an average number of goals per game equal to 3.33.
The last league contest featuring these clubs was Serie A match day 28 on 05/03/2022 when it ended Udinese 2-1 Sampdoria.
In that match, Udinese managed 43% possession and 19 attempts on goal with 5 on target. The scorers were Gerard Deulofeu (3') and Destiny Udogie (12').
At the other end, Sampdoria got 8 attempts at goal with 4 of them on target. Francesco Caputo (13') was the scorer.

Team News: Sampdoria
Manuel De Luca (Meniscal Injury), Nicola Murru (Muscle Fatigue), Fabio Quagliarella (Knee Injury), Ignacio Pussetto (Knee Problems) and Andrea Conti (tendon irritation) are unavailable for Sampdoria manager Dejan Stanković.
Team News: Udinese
Out of a mainly available squad, there’s just the lone fitness worry for the Udinese gaffer Andrea Sottil to be concerned about. Adam Masina (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) misses out for this game.
We’re of the view that Sampdoria could find themselves struggling to hit the back of the net against this Udinese lineup who we think will likely manage to get a goal of their own in a winning performance.
We’re therefore expecting a very competitive game with a 0-1 winning score for Udinese at the end of this game.
Looking forward to watching this one unfold.
