Juventus vs SampdoriaSerie A, KO: 11:30 Sep 26, 2021, Allianz Stadium
Fresh from their first Serie A win of the season, Juventus welcome Sampdoria to the Allianz Stadium. The Turin side are looking to spark some life into their campaign and given Sampdoria's poor start to the season, the hosts backed to claim the points.
Juventus are finally off the mark in Serie A after claiming a 3-2 victory at Spezia in their previous fixture. Moise Kean struck the opener in the first half while Federico Chiesa and Matthijs de Ligt were also on target after the break.
After enduring a difficult start to the season, Juventus appear to be slowly returning to their best form. They are unbeaten in their last three matches across all competitions with a 3-0 UEFA Champions League victory over Malmo among their results in that run.
The next step for manager Massimiliano Allegri is to find a way to tighten up at the back. They are without a clean sheet this season and have conceded eight goals in just five matches.
Sampdoria were not at their best last time out in Serie A and were hammered 4-0 at home by Napoli. They wasted a few good chances to get on the score sheet but were generally second best throughout the encounter.
It has been a poor start to the season for Sampdoria, who have claimed just one win in their opening five matches. They often find things difficult against the big teams and have already been beaten 1-0 by AC Milan this season.
Roberto D’Aversa’s men are usually poor travellers and have claimed just three wins in their last 11 away matches, stretching back to last season. They have also struggled at the back lately, conceding six goals in their last three matches.
