Torino vs Sampdoria

Torino and Sampdoria are sitting next to each other in the table, just 3 points separating them as both try to finish as high in the table as they can come end of this season. Torino have been the entertainers all season with their games seeing a glut of goals being scored at both ends, which sees Torino games seeing an average of 3.55 goals per game this campaign. In 33 games this season, they have scored 63 goals, which is almost an average of 2 per game. Their scoring efforts have been led by Belotti (25 goals), Falque (11 goals), Ljajic (8 goals), Benassi and Baselli (5 goals). On the defensive side, while they had signed England no.1 Joe Hart; goals have been conceded with relative easier most of their games as they have shipped 54 goals this season. Both teams have scored in 80% of their games including in 14 out of their last 15 games.

Sampdoria have had a successful season by their standards where they are sitting in 10th spot in the table. They have built a squad of good players including Quagliarella, Muriel, Schick, Fernandes, Alvarez, Barreto who have all contribute to their teams success until his stage. Forward Luis Muriel who has netted 10 goals this season will be missing, but they can call on Quagliarella (8 goals) and Shick (10 goals) to help them with their scoring efforts tonight. Sampdoria games have averaged around 2.5 per game and a bigger cause for concern for them have been on the defensive end. In recent weeks they have conceded 2 goals per game in each of their last 3 games, which has seen them get only 1 point out of a possible 9 in that stretch. Both teams have scored in 70% of Sampdoria’s games this season.
This game should see both sides have been quite open in their football, Torino for most of the season while Sampdoria games have been expansive over the last 4 games . I am expecting both teams to find the back of the net.
