Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Sampdoria will be looking to bounce back from a 3-0 loss to Juventus when they host Benevento at their Stadio Luigi Ferraris. La Samp are eager to record their first win of the season, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at the Gli Stregoni. Sampdoria are a real force to be reckoned with at home, but they can’t afford any complacency in Saturday’s football match. The good news for the hosts is that talented Norway midfielder Kristoffer Askildsen returns from suspension.
Benevento, on the other hand, aim to impress on their return to the Serie A, but they are seen as underdogs in their opener. The Gli Stregoni impressed in the Serie B last term, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in the Italian top flight. Seeing that Gabbiadini is the only absentee in the home team, we are tempted to put our money on Sampdoria.
