Sampdoria welcomes a winless Cremonese to the Stadio Alberto Picco in Serie A on Sunday in an effort to avenge consecutive losses. The Eagles have failed to earn a point this month after being destroyed 4-0 by Lazio at the beginning of the month, followed by a 2-0 loss to Monza, a team making their top-flight debut.
For the first time since 1996, Cremonese have returned to the top flight, and they have had a baptism of fire. La Cremo has gone nine games without recording a victory, amassing only three points, and is mired second to last in the league rankings.
Sampdoria vs Cremonese Prediction
With 19 goals allowed thus far in the competition, Cremonese has performed poorly in their first season in Serie A.
Sampdoria, although not being in great form themselves, has a chance to halt their slide and secure their first win in three games. We anticipate that they will win.
Sampdoria 2-1 Cremonese is the prediction.
