An exciting contest is predicted as Sampdoria host Spezia in an Italian Serie A fixture at the Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris. Both teams have made slow starts to the season but tend to produce thrilling encounters and Friday’s clash should be no different.

Sampdoria are coming off a 3-1 defeat away at Cagliari in their previous Serie A fixture. Despite seeing more of the possession, they struggled to find their rhythm in the final third with Morten Thorsby striking a consolation eight minutes from time.

It has been a difficult start to the season for Sampdoria, who are sitting just outside the relegation zone with six points after claiming one win from eight matches. Roberto D’Aversa’s men have been poor in defence and have kept just one clean sheet this term.

Sampdoria have been draw specialists this term and have been held four times already this season. Two of those draws have come in their last three home matches, including a 3-3 draw against Udinese in their most recent fixture at the Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris.

Spezia were victorious last time out in Serie A as they triumphed 2-1 over bottom side Salernitana. They fought back from a goal down with second half efforts from David Strelec and Viktor Kovalenko earning them the win.

It was only the second win of the campaign for Spezia, who are currently sitting just one point above Sampdoria on the table. They have also struggled with poor defending this season and have conceded the most goals in Serie A.

Spezia have a decent record on the road lately with a win and three draws from their last six away matches, stretching back to last season.

How the bookies view it

The bookies have installed Sampdoria as favourites for the win at 8/11 with BoyleSports while a victory for Spezia is valued at 4/1 by bet365. SBK is offering odds of 16/5 for a draw.

Head to head

Spezia have a 2-1 edge with 1 draw from four previous matches against Sampdoria. The visitors were also unbeaten in this fixture last season, claiming a 2-1 victory at home before earning a 2-2 draw in the reverse fixture at the Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris.

Players to watch

Forward Francesco Caputo has two goals for Sampdoria this season and is priced at 29/20 by Betfred to find the net on Friday. Veteran striker Fabio Quagliarella was on target in the 3-3 draw against Udinese and could also be worth a punt in the same market at 13/10 with betway.

Spezia often spread their goals across the team with strikers Emanuel Gyasi and Daniele Verde scoring twice each this season. Paddy Power has Gyasi at 4/1 to score anytime while bet365 is offering 5/1 on Verde in the same market.

Anything else catch the eye?

There has been BTTS in the last two matches between Sampdoria and Spezia and a similar outcome is priced at 4/6 by SBK. The last meeting at the Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris produced over 3.5 goals and betfair is offering 13/8 for a repeat.

Both teams have drawn at halftime in their last two meetings and Friday’s clash is likely to follow a similar pattern at 13/10 with SBK.
