On Monday, February 6, Monza will play Sampdoria, which is 19th in Serie A, at the Stadio Brianteo in an effort to extend their unbeaten streak in the Italian top flight. With goals in the first half from Patrick Ciurria and Dany Mota, the hosts were able to avenge their 2-1 loss to Juventus in the Coppa Italia last month with an impressive 2-0 victory over them on the road.
The hosts will be high on confidence after their first-ever victory away from home against Juventus last week when they have seen an improvement in their recent league games. Last time out, Sampdoria lost to Atalanta 2-0 on the road, continuing their poor league run.
They are just one point behind Cremonese, who are in last place, despite suffering their fourth loss in a row.
They are anticipated to continue that trend in this game, as they have won all four of their previous games played at home. The absence of goals has been particularly troubling for I Blucerchiati, who have not been able to get their season back on track.
We anticipate them to struggle here, having failed to score in four of their last five away games. I Biancorossi are expected to win comfortably, and the odds of keeping a clean sheet are also good, given the two teams’ current form.
Prediction: Monza 2-0 Sampdoria.
The two northwestern Italian rivals have played each other 16 times across all competitions, with their first encounter in Serie A occurring in October. Sampdoria has won 6-3 in these matches, while the other seven have ended in draws. In their last nine Serie A contests, Sampdoria has failed to score in eight of those defeats.
In their last five matches in all competitions against Sampdoria, the I Biancorossi have scored more than 2.5 goals. The hosts have scored at least two goals in four of their last six league games, going unbeaten. On the other hand, the visitors have failed to score in their last four league games.
In Serie A this season, Sampdoria has conceded more goals than Cremonese, who finished last with 35. Sampdoria’s attacking record is the worst in the competition, with just eight goals scored in 20 games. Despite the fact that the two previous encounters between Sampdoria and Monza occurred in 2001, both of Sampdoria’s victories came on Monday.
Monza coach Raffaele Palladino should have an almost full squad available to him on Monday, with only Stefano Sensi certain to miss time due to suspension and Guilio Donati uncertain due to injury. Samuele Birindelli will hope to return on the right flank, and Andrea Petagna is in contention to lead the lineup front, so the 38-year-old could select the same team.
Gianluca Caprari has made 73 appearances for Sampdoria during his time in Liguria and is a likely selection behind the lone striker. He has scored four goals against Sampdoria in Serie A so far, including his first goal in the top flight in 2012.
Monza had a quiet winter window after a frantic summer on the transfer market, but Samp made a few moves to shake up an ailing team. Abdelhamid Sabiri moved to Fiorentina, where he will remain on loan until June, and Ronaldo Vieira moved temporarily to Torino;
Among those who joined the club’s fight against relegation were Koray Gunter and former Bayern Munich midfielder Mickael Cuisance, and both could now play. Sabiri (thigh) joins Omar Colley (knee) and Filip Djuricic (muscular) on the visitors’ injury list, despite Harry Winks’ recent return to action.
Mehdi Leris, a wingback, has received nine yellow cards this season, including one in each of his last four games.
