Betting tips Sampdoria vs. SPAL

Sampdoria too strong for SPAL

Monday brings with it a new month and a fresh match for Serie A Monday night football. SPAL travel to Genoa to meet Sampdoria at the Marassi, kick off 19.30.

SPAL have had a good start to the season, and it’s all down to solid performances on the pitch. But their rhythm has been interrupted by a loss to Sassuolo in midweek. Sampdoria will be looking forward to this home match up and will be hoping to get their season underway in continuing fashion.


La Samp have started their season with a good squad and with a positive intentions. In fact their squad is strong throughout the pitch and Marco Giampaolo continues to impress as a coach. Their season so far has seen some ups and downs with an opening day loss to Udinese. But they since bounced back to win resoundingly against Napoli and Frosinone, 3-0 and 0-5 respectively.

Their latest run of form included two draws and defeat which isn’t great to say the least. In detail though, it’s not as bad as it looks. Drawing against a decent Fiorentina side is reasonable, and the same goes for a team that’s dominant at home such as Cagliari.

Despite losing against Inter, Sampdoria looked good and on any other day they would’ve picked up some points. In attack with the likes of Defrel, Caprari and Quagliarella they’re arguably the strongest.

For the SPAL match they’re missing Saponara, and potentially Caprari as well. Otherwise it’s looking good for the Genoans.


SPAL are a small club with a big heart. Their coach Semplici has done a commendable job with an otherwise limited squad of players. Especially at home they’re looking stronger having won their first two home matches but now they lost against there against Sassuolo.

If has to be said that SPAL have had a little bit of luck on their side, but it can’t stay around that long. The longer the season goes on, the harder it will be. They got taken apart by Fiorentina 3-0 and considering the Sampdoria are about the same level of opposition it will be tough for them.

They’ve got their season underway in a decent fashion but now with that loss to Sassuolo, their third in the season it looks like their good work could come undone.

Offensively they’re probably strongest with players like Curtic and Petagna, but their backline is vulnerable. SPAL don’t have any noticeable omissions for Sampdoria.

Match Tips

It looks like SPAL’s strong start has had an impact on the odds. They’re quite high for a Sampdoria win considering that SPAL are really a side who should be finding themselves finishing towards the bottom. Sampdoria are strong at home. They have a full squad and have started the season reasonably well.

I think Sampdoria will handle SPAL well. That’s why I’m going for Sampdoria at 17/20.
