Juventus FC vs Sampdoria.
In the first leg of the Europa League round of 16, Juventus overcame Germany's Freiburg 1-0 on Thursday night courtesy to a goal from Angel Di Maria.
Juventus scored 10 goals while giving up 5, earning 12 of the last 18 available points. At the Stadio Olimpico in Rome, they were defeated by Roma last weekend by a score of 1-0. It was Juventus' fifth loss of the year.
Juventus has defeated Sampdoria eight times in a row at home in all competitions. Sampdoria, meanwhile, has gone 11 straight Serie A games without scoring.
Sampdoria should have little trouble losing against Juventus, who should easily win again. In all competitions, Juventus will have defeated Sampdoria nine times in a row at home. For Sampdoria, the result should be a humiliating loss given
As things are, Sampdoria will drop to Serie B. The Blucerchiati are nine points off the Serie A safety line. It appears quite unlikely that Sampdoria will mount a winning streak in the remaining months of the season to avoid relegation with only two victories this season.
At the Stadio Luigi Ferraris earlier this season, the Blucerchiati did manage to draw nil-nil with Juventus. Juventus, meanwhile, is in excellent shape going into the game.
In its last six games, Sampdoria scored three points. Only three goals were scored by the Blucerchiati in their last six games, earning them all three points via draws. In the first 25 Serie A games, Sampdoria had only three victories.
Prediction: Juventus FC to win this match and over 2.5 goals.
