Lazio earned their ticket for the next stage of the Conference League campaign a bit harder than expected.
They failed to be more creative last Thursday on the road to Romania when the clash ended with a 0:0 stalemate, leaving their narrow 1:0 home victory a week before doing the job for them.
The Romans are currently sitting at the 5th spot in the Serie A standings, two points in deficit compared to the Champions League-placed Milan, while with the boosted morale after their latest 0:2 victory away against Salernitana, Lazio is undeniably entering this clash with a mind focused on only one scenario.
They should only miss central defenders Romagnoli (21/1) and Radu (1/0).
Sampdoria is running through some troubles for some time now in the Serie A campaign, as the absence of victory is becoming a serious problem, facing yet another defeat last time out at home against Bologna with a close 1:2 result.
The hosts conceded first in the 27th, responding from the penalty later in the 68th, and had a great chance for a reversal from the same situation only three minutes later, however, this time failed to be accurate and were punished with another one conceded just before the full-time whistle.

Sampdoria is positioned at the 19th spot in the general standings, having a slim chance to avoid a relegation battle scenario this season.
The guests will miss central defender Gunter (13/1), right full-back Conti (1/0) and offensive midfielder Pussetto (5/0).
Staying in touch with the top
The Roman outfit had some issues lately with their form, but they are seemingly back on the right path after their latest success against Salernitana, as mentioned above, undeniably being fully focused to take the offer which is in front of them.
Realistically, they are facing a side that is falling deeper and deeper into abys, so expecting everything else except a dominating performance of the hosts would be a truly unreasonable thing to do, at least in my opinion.
