Sampdoria v Udinese Preview, Serie A, Monday 13th January 2014

Sampdoria host Udinese Monday night it what will be an important clash for them. With sitting two points behind their opponents coming into this match they will see this as a great opportunity to place some distance between them and the bottom 3. A relegation battle isn’t too far away from this historic club with 18th placed Sassuolo only four points behind them. A loss on Monday night will certainly have the fans worried so all focus must be on the win. Form did pick up at the end of last year but since the new year Sampdoria have only faced defeat in the league and cup and will be looking to get that lost form back on track come Monday.

Udinese come into Monday nights game knowing they have only won three times at this ground since time placed these two opponents against each other. They have however drawn six times at this ground so they do know that points are there on offer to them if they play well. A loss in this game will see their opponents climb one point clear and the two will switch places in the league. This wouldn’t be a huge issue if the gap between them and the bottom three was slightly larger but reality has it that any team in this league position is fighting for survival to stay in the top flight even though they is still plenty of games to be played. Form hasn’t been consistent lately with far too many loses between the odd win here and there and if they do wish to stay in this league the club will have to improve.

Sampdoria v Udinese Team News

Sampdoria Team News:

The Brazilian goalkeeper Angelo Da Costa is set to start yet another game on Monday, the only Sampdoria player who has so far played in every league game so far this season. Sampdoria goals haven’t been flowing freely this season with the top scorer Eder the only one that’s slightly impressive with 7 goals in 14 games. His fellow strike partners Gabbiadini(4), Pozzi(2) and Sansone(1) only have 7 between them.

Udinese Team News:

Udinese although only slightly higher in the league seem to be struggling for goals a little more than their opponents on Monday night, although they can take slight comfort knowing that at least their defense is a little tighter. Udinese top scorer is 36 year old Antonio di Natale who has only scored 4 goals in 16 matches. Youngster Luis Muriel is hot on his heels however with 3 goals in 11 games and should feature Monday night.

With 13 wins to Udinese’ 9 and 10 draws you can see Sampdoria come out on top here.

Sampdoria in recent weeks have had a bad run of results and will be looking to Monday as a chance to repair that damage. Although it seems on paper and in the Serie A League it is in fact Udinese who are the better team in form here.

Sampdoria v Udinese Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

With every piece of information taken into account I feel this game could actually go either way on Monday night. Both teams will see this game as a must win although that result maybe a little harder for Udinese to achieve after having only won three times at this ground in the past. They have however gathered a few more points with the draw so we could see that result feature after the 90 minutes.

Sampdoria are two points behind their opponents coming into this match and will swap places with them in the league if they do manage a win. Their strike force is slightly more often on target that Udinese although the away side do have a tighter defense. I think as we look into possible predictions we will need to keep the above information close as it could prove to be valuable in where we place our money.

So my first prediction will go down as a score draw, which I feel is a high possibility with both teams looking to chase the win and get further away from the relegation battle that is happening just a few points below them. The other is for Sampdoria to win with the Brazilian striker Eder on target once more. He is their strongest bet to grab a win on Monday so I can see him playing well when the two clash heads.
