Investments in Sampdoria are getting smaller in recent years, which is why the poor results should not be surprising, and they, along with Cremonese, are the only team without a win in the new season. La Samp have the worst start to a season in club history, collecting just three points from the opening nine games. Newly appointed manager Dejan Stankovic is aware that he will have a difficult task to rescue Sampdoria from the relegation zone and keep them in the company of the best.

After an impressive start to the season - 7 points from the opening three games, Roma's overall form is rocking for the past month, but what should please manager Jose Mourinho is the fact that his team travel to Genoa with plenty of optimism after the Giallorossi achieved two consecutive triumphs in Serie A - over Inter (2-1) and Lecce (2-1), which leaves them in sixth position and only four points behind the leader Napoli.

The tradition of recent meetings of these teams is absolutely on Roma's side, who have triumphed in three of the last five clashes against Sampdoria, so it is no wonder that the Giallorossi carry the epithet of slight favourites.

The debut match of former Red Star coach Dejan Stankovic on the bench of Sampdoria was successful, taking a point in an unpleasant away game against Bologna, ending the streak of four consecutive defeats in Serie A.

Namely, Sampdoria has improved their goal-scoring performance lately, scoring at least a goal in 5 of their last 6 games, but their biggest problem still lies in their defense, conceding 2+ in 4 of their last 5 games.

There is no doubt that Roma have the firepower in attack with Tammy Abraham and Andrea Belotti, but their defense is still "squeak", as the Giallorossi have registered only two "clean sheets" in the last 10 games.

It should be emphasized that Roma play football - openly, attacking and without calculations in recent weeks, which is best evidenced by the fact that they have ended 6 of the last 8 games with goals on both sides.

A win over Roma would be a strong injection of confidence for Sampdoria, while Roma expects a third consecutive Serie A triumph. Both teams should adopt an attacking approach, which certainly promises us goals at both ends.
