Bologna vs. Sampdoria Predictions & Betting Tips

Bologna

It could well be a relegation six pointer at the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara, so these Bologna vs. Sampdoria predictions are very important. The visitors are rooted to the bottom of the table but come up against a Rossoblu side in miserable form.

Bologna vs. Sampdoria odds

  1. – A draw at full-time – 5/2
  2. – Under 2.5 goals scored – 11/12
  3. – Bologna to keep a clean sheet – 9/5
  4. Marko Arnautovic to score anytime – 6/4
  5. – Bologna to score under 1.5 goals – 4/5

It’s 17th vs. 20th in the Serie A table as Bologna welcome Sampdoria this weekend. The host’s solitary win has ensured that they currently sit just clear of relegation, but they have lost both of their opening games under new boss Thiago Motta.

Things are looking even worse for Sampdoria, who go into match day nine with just two points on the board. Marco Giampaolo will have earmarked this current run of fixtures as a potential escape route from the drop zone. However, last weekend’s 3-0 defeat to fellow relegation candidates Monza, having lost to Spezia before the international break, will have further damaged morale.

With so much riding on the clash at the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara the match will have a long way to go to live up to the billing. Instead, as is so often the case, we predict that the spoils may well be shared between the two sides with a draw our tip for Saturday’s match.

The goal scoring record of the two sides suggests that the match is unlikely to be particularly high scoring. Sampdoria have notched just four goals in eight games this season, with club stalwart Fabio Quagliarella yet to get on the scoresheet. As a result, a wager on under 2.5 goals scored this weekend should pay off, whilst a punt on Bologna to keep a clean sheet may also be successful.

Of course, lining up for the hosts is a forward enjoying one of his strongest starts to a campaign. Marco Arnautovic is currently the Serie A top scorer, with six goals to his name, and is our tip to score anytime on Saturday.

It should be mentioned, however, that the Austrian has now gone two games without a goal and barely had a touch in the defeat to Juventus. Unless the forward’s teammates start providing service, a wager on Bologna to score under 1.5 goals yet again may be a winner.

Bologna team news

Thiago Motta may look to refresh the squad aiming to add some attacking ambition. Emanuel Bignato will hope to start having only featured from the bench last weekend whilst Andrea Cambiaso may get into the starting XI, replacing Lorenzo De Silvestri.

Sampdoria team news

Manuel De Luca is the only absentee from Marco Giampaolo’s squad, although the manager is likely to overhaul the starting XI following that humiliating defeat to Monza. Bartosz Bereszynski is expected to make way for Andrea Conti, whilst one of Filip Djuricic or Fabio Quagliarella is expected to start up front.
