Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Stadio Olimpico will host Sunday’s football game between Roma and Sampdoria. The Giallorossi continue with their habit of producing much better showings at home than on the travels, with the team eyeing their third consecutive win at their Stadio Olimpico. Both Spinazzola and Zaniolo remain in the recovery room, while Mirante is rated doubtful for the game.
La Samp, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-2 loss to Sassuolo, and it is no wonder they are seen as underdogs in the first game of the year. The likes of Ferrari, Jankto, Gabbiadini, and Bereszynski are all out of contention with injuries for the visiting team, while Thorsby will be assessed ahead of the match. Anyhow, home win should be considered as over the years Roma have turned their stadium into a real fortress.
