Sampdoria will meet Juventus on Wednesday night at Stadio Luigi Ferraris for Round 17 of Serie A.
After 3 matches without a single point, Sampdoria went to Genoa to steal a win in the closing minutes. The historic club is going through a rough patch at the moment, fighting to avoid the relegation spots in the league. One of their main problems is Sampdoria’s lack of goals, as they’re only averaging 0.6 goals on their last five home matches. Even though they’re struggling, Sampdoria produced a 2-0 win last season against the champions, something that could give them confidence, heading into Wednesday match. Quagliarella and Gaston Ramirez are the main players for Claudio Ranieri’s side.
Juventus come off an easy win at home last Sunday against Udinese. Prior to that game, they were on a 2-game winless streak for Serie A, something that’s not very common. Cristiano Ronaldo seems to to be back on track after the whole incident with Maurizio Sarri, knocking three goals in his last two matches and looking more engaged overall. He’ll probably smell for blood again against Sampdoria as he tries to recover ground on Ciro Immobile on the top strikers list. It’s expected some changes as well for Juventus due to their tough and stacked schedule.
Looking to have regained his form, Cristiano Ronaldo will probably lineup in Sarri’s starting XI. Keep an eye on Ronaldo to score at anytime against Sampdoria.
