Sampdoria suffered an expected loss in their last trip to Napoli when they were outplayed by their hosts with a close 1:0 result.
They were completely pushed back from the start and conceded the only one in this clash over Petagna back in the 43rd, definitely been lucky to a certain degree, as their defeat could potentially be much more convincing.
Sampdoria is positioned at the 15th spot in the Serie A standings, having four points more than relegation-placed Cagliari.
Goalkeeper Audero (20/0) is out injured now, as they also miss defender Colley (18/0). Midfielder Damsgaard (7/0), forward Verre (11/0), and defender Yoshida (18/2) are doubtful.
Torino performed quite well in their last home fixture against slightly favored and inconvenient Fiorentina when they completely dominated over their opponent and recorded a convincing 4:0 victory.
They were effective three times during the first, and crowned their better appearance with another one in the second part, not leaving much room for Violas to be more creative and possibly spice this one a bit.
With this victory, Torino holds the 9th spot in the rankings, being four points in deficit compared to previously mentioned Conference League-positioned Fiorentina.
The guests will miss defenders Aina (16/0), Ansaldi (9/0) and forward Belotti (9/2).
Decent offensive roosters
Even though Sampdoria failed to be effective in their latest encounter, they are still potent enough in a majority of matches this season, regardless of the outcomes.
Needless to say anything about Torino and their morale-boosting victory last time out, so for me, this clash has a great goal potential, and generally speaking, it is very difficult to see one side walking away with a clean sheet out of this one – modest stakes though.
