Cagliari vs Sampdoria

, KO: 11:30 Oct 17, 2021, Unipol Domus
Sampdoria

Cagliari’s search for their first win of the season continues as they face Sampdoria in an Italaian Serie A fixture at Unipol Domus. Sampdoria have claimed just one win so far and with both teams desperate for an upturn in form, they are likely to cancel each other out.

Cagliari battled relegation throughout last season and only secured their survival in the final weeks. They are currently bottom of the table with no wins from their opening seven matches and look set for another long campaign.

Walter Mazzarri’s men head into Sunday’s clash off the back of a 1-1 draw with Venezia in their previous Serie A fixture. They took an early lead through Keita Balde and looked on course for their first win of the season before conceding the equaliser deep into added time.

The result means Cagliari have now drawn three matches this season, two of which have come at home. They have also struggled defensively, conceding in all seven of their matches this term.

Sampdoria are also coming off a draw as they were held 3-3 by Udinese last time out in Serie A. Fabio Quagliarella and Antonio Candreva were both on target while they also benefitted from an unfortunate own goal from Jens Stryger Larsen.

Despite sitting 15th on the table, Sampdoria have not fared any much better than Cagliari this season. Roberto D’Aversa’s men have claimed just one win from their opening seven matches and are just three points above Sunday’s hosts.

Sampdoria have also played out three draws this season and are unbeaten in two of their last three away matches. Like the hosts, they have also struggled defensively with one clean sheet in their last six Serie A matches.
