Roma vs. Sampdoria odds

1 – Roma to win at – 4/9

2 – Roma under 2.5 total goals – 4/11

3 – Total goals scored under 2.5 – 13/16

4 – Both teams not to score – 27/20

5 – Roma to win 2-0 at – 27/5

Roma find themselves stuck between qualification campaigns ahead of the final weeks of the season with Mourinho in the running for a Champions League and a Europa League spot.

The veteran Portuguese boss will also be utilizing their current run to the Europa League quarter finals as an alternate route to next season’s Champions League, but they are in a strong position either way.

Ahead of this weekend, hosts Roma are currently fifth in the Serie A table, just a point behind Milan, in fourth.

However, Mourinho needs his players to be refreshed after the international break, after ending the month with back-to-back league losses, against Sassuolo and arch foes Lazio.

Sampdoria picked up their first league win in 11 games in their final outing before the break, but Mourinho will still be confident of a key win in this tie.

Goals have been a real issue for Mourinho in Serie A in recent weeks, with just one of their last six league matches including 1.5 total goals scored by his team, and they have only managed to score over 2.5 goals in 90 minutes of Serie A on one occasion since the end of October.

Only two of their last seven league outings have featured over 2.5 total goals scored between both teams at full time and Sampdoria have scored six in six away from home in Serie A since the start of 2023.

A routine win for Roma will keep them on track to pressure Milan and others as the season begins to wind up.

However, at the opposite end of the table, Sampdoria are nine points adrift of safety and relegation looks to be almost confirmed for Dejan Stankovic’s charges.

Roma team news

Incredibly, Mourinho is without four first team players through suspension for this game, with Roger Ibanez and Bryan Cristante sent off in the defeat to Lazio, and Marash Kumbulla and Gianluca Mancini both banned for one-game due to separate disciplinary issues.

Sampdoria team news

Sampdoria are also hit by a suspension with Bram Nuytinck serving a one-game ban for the visitors. Sam Lammers and Emil Audero are both edging back to full fitness, but Stankovic could stick with an unchanged starting XI, aside from Nuytinck.
