It’s time for another Genova derby in the Serie A when Sampdoria hosts Genoa at the Luigi Ferraris on Wednesday. In our football betting tips this weekend we will take a look at this game, so let’s get to work.
Sampdoria approach this derby in a much better condition than their local rival. Claudio Ranieri made the team perform on the highest level lately. Sampdoria won four of their last five matches in the Calcio which helped them climb to 13th place in the Serie A. At some moment Samp were in danger of relegation, but Ranieri’s experience helped him find the right approach to the players’ minds.
In their last match Sampdoria achieved their 12th win for the season. They paid a visit to Parma at the Ennio Tardini and successfully went home with a 3-2 win. Samp were actually two goals behind at halftime, but in the second half they secured the win with goals from Chabot, Quagliarella and Bonazzoli.
Genoa’s situation is not that good at the moment. The Grifoni are still fighting for survival. Right now Genoa are 17th in the Serie A standings with 33 points, four points ahead of the 18th Lecce. This is not a bad gap, but at this moment it’s not entirely enough for Genoa to feel safe.
In the previous round Genoa achieved their just 8th win for the campaign. Davide Nicola’s team had a crucial match against Lecce with they won with 2-1 at the Luigi Ferraris. Antonio Sanabria scored for the Grifoni, while Lecce’s Gabriel scored himself an own goal.
That’s our football betting tips this weekend for the Serie A clash between Sampdoria and Genoa. It doesn’t matter much what these two teams current condition is – a derby is always a derby. Sampdoria are in a better state right now, but Genoa will fight hard for their survival. You can be sure about this.
