SPAL hosts Sampdoria

SPAL hosts Sampdoria in a match from the 26th round of the Italian Serie A. Allow us to examine this clash in our winning soccer predictions of the league.

Right now SPAL are 15th in the Serie A standings with 23 points won. They have a record of 5 wins, 8 draws and 12 defeats since the beginning of the season. In their last five matches SPAL won once, made two draws and suffered two defeats.

SPAL’s last game in the league ended with a 1-1 draw during the visit to Sassuolo. Federico Peluso opened for the home side, but Andrea Petagna equalised for the visitors after a well executed penalty kick.

SPAL still can’t feel absolutely sure about their survival. They are 15th in the standings, but only 5 points ahead of the 18th Bologna. This is not a bad gap, but it’s also a gap which can be reduced pretty fast. They must play with caution now.

Sampdoria are 10th in the Serie A with 36 points won so far. The club from Genova have a record of 10 wins, 6 draws and 9 losses. In their last five matches in the league Samp won twice, but suffered three defeats as well. They are pretty inconsistent at the moment.

In their last match Sampdoria won, though. Marco Giampaolo’s boys faced Cagliari at home and enjoyed a 1-0 win, thanks to a winning goal by Fabio Quagliarella from a penalty kick in the 66th minute. Before this win, Sampdoria suffered three consecutive losses in the league, so they really needed to win this one.

These are our winning soccer predictions for the Serie A fixture between SPAL and Sampdoria on Sunday afternoon. The visitors are better positioned in the league standings, but they are also a little bit inconsistent at the moment. On the other hand, SPAL really need points at the moment.
