Nervous Sampdoria take relegation battle to the Stadio Olimpico di Torino to face Torino

Sampdoria will have doubtless licked their wounds, following their recent defeat to Fiorentina at Luigi Ferraris. Dejan Stankovic’s men will hope that is enough to deliver a positive result in this match.

Also, the relegation zone is not where Sampdoria want to be at the end of the season, but that is where they are heading, unless they can get out of their losing habit. The Blue-circled have lost seven of their last nine matches in the Serie A. Their position is eighteenth in the League and they have six points, that is, 1W, 9L and 3D having won one game, drawn three fixtures, and lost nine games.

Sampdoria’s away record is remarkable and poses a significant threat to Torino. In the 6 games they’ve played on the road this season, they have so far won one game, drawn one game, and lost four games.

Sampdoria will have 9 points if they manage to secure a victory.

Sampdoria are likely to be missing six of their key players when they start Wednesday’s game, due to injury and illness.
