Football News – Sampdoria-Juventus
Sampdoria hosts Juventus in a game from the 13th round of the Italian Serie A.
Juventus are currently 2nd in the Serie A standings, being on just one point behind the leader Napoli. Max Allegri’s team is certainly not used to be in such a position, but in same time Juve are really close to the top. All they have to do is keep winning and hope that Napoli will start making some more mistakes.
Juve’s record in the league so far is ten wins, one draw and one loss. They have lost against Lazio few weeks ago, but since then the Old Lady is flawless – four wins in a row, which allowed Juventus to come closer to Napoli.
In the last round Allegri’s team achieved a 2-1 win against Benevento at home, which was far from surprising, of course.
Sampdoria on the other hand are 6th in the Serie A standigns with 23 points, but also with a game in hand. Sampdoria have a record of seven wins, two draws and two losses, but they have won their last two games in the league – against Chievo and Genoa. They also scored six goals in these two matches, which tells us that this team is in a good condition at the moment.
Let’s have a look at the team news before the match.
Juventus could be without Miralem Pjanic and Juan Cuadrado, who are having some problems with injuries. They are not written off for the game against Sampdoria, but it’s still not clear if they’d be able to participate.
In the same time Sampdoria are lucky enough to have a full squad for the home game against the champions.
This is going to be a tough game for Juve, that’s for sure. Sampdoria are a decent team and they have the home ground advantage here. Can Juventus break them? We shall see.
