Our prediction for this Serie A match:
There will be fireworks when Sampdoria and Genoa face each other in the Derby della Lanterna. Sampdoria head into the local derby following a come-from-behind win over Parma, and, no doubt, they are high on spirits ahead of the match. La Samp have been scoring goals for fun of late, and you should bear in mind that over 2.5 goals have been netted in 12 of their last 13 league fixtures.
Claudio Ranieri can count on key players for the Genoa clash. The Rossoblu, on the other hand, picked up vital three points in the relegation battle from the clash against Lecce. Genoa boss Davide Nicola can breathe easier ahead of the Derby della Lanterna, but his men can’t afford any complacency. Considering that Genoa should be happy with one point from the local derby, we are tempted to put our money on draw.
