On Sunday morning, Sampdoria host Inter Milan at the Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris in Serie A, as the visitors look to continue their good start to the Italian league season.
Sampdoria are winless after two games in Serie A this season following a 1-0 home defeat against Milan and a goalless draw at Sassuolo last time out.
The start to the new league campaign has certainly been underwhelming and a meeting with Inter is not the easiest of games to turn flagging fortunes around.
The fact that Samp have yet to find the net in the Italian top-flight will be a big concern for Ricardo D’Aversa and his team.
The defeat against Milan on the opening weekend of the Serie A season ended a four-game unbeaten run on home soil for the Genoa-based outfit. They had also scored at least two goals in each of their four unbeaten home matches.
Inter have made a bright start to life under new head coach Simone Inzaghi. The reigning champions have kicked off their title defence with a 4-1 win over Genoa before a 3-1 victory at Verona last time out.
Some will say that they haven’t yet faced tough opponents. However, the start is a good one for a club that was supposedly in crisis in the summer.
Taking into account this season’s games, Inter have now won seven of their last eight matches in the Italian top-flight. A key to that recent good league form is their attacking prowess, as they have scored at least two goals in six of their last seven matches in Serie A.
The Nerazzurri also have a decent away record in Serie A, having won seven of their last ten matches on their travels in the Italian top-flight.
PlusBet.net predicts that Inter will make it three wins out of three in the Italian top-flight this season by recording a victory in a high-scoring encounter.
