This time Sampdoria make the journey to the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza to face Internazionale, where they will endeavour to take points from the home team.

Inter will travel to Sampdoria, hoping to take points from their higher ranked opponents.

Internazionale arrive at this game, having secured 81 points so far this season

Returning to match-winning form, following a defeat is always a tough challenge, but that is what Inter need now, after their loss to Cagliari at Unipol Domus.

Also, Inter keep finding ways to win, having secured seven victories in their last eight matches is astonishing this season, which has contributed significantly to their rise up the table. Their position is second in the League and they have 81 points, that is, 24W, 4L and 9D having won 24 fixtures, drawn nine games, and lost four meetings.

Sampdoria will have to defy the odds when they travel to Inter, if they are to get anything out of the game. With Inter having won 13 games, drawn three meetings, and lost two matches this season at home, this is a huge ask.

Internazionale will have 84 points if they manage to secure a victory.

Good atacking and defensive team

Inter have a solid defence, with only 32 goals conceded in their previous matches. Inter have a good scoring record this season, with 81 netted so far (80 from open play and one penalty). Their stand out attacking players have been Lautaro Martinez (10), Edin Dzeko (5), and Alexis Sanchez (3).

With the Serie A season well into its stride, Sampdoria have managed to gain 36 points

With two wins in a row under his belt, Marco Giampaolo takes his Sampdoria team into this game full of confidence, and hopeful of another successive victory.

Also, suffering 12 losses in 18 games is a terrible run of form for any club, Marco Giampaolo’s Sampdoria will know this and will be hopeful of turning it around. With 36 points (10W, 21L and 6D), they are established in fifteenth position in the League having won 10 fixtures, drawn six games, and lost 21 fixtures.

Sampdoria’s away record is remarkable and poses a significant threat to Inter. In the 18 games they’ve played on the road this season, they have so far won four meetings, drawn three games, and lost 11 fixtures.

A win in this fixture, would take Sampdoria’s points from 36 to 39, so far this season.

Sampdoria’s squad has depth, but even so, Marco Giampaolo is likely to be missing three of they key players when they start Sunday’s game.
