Two clubs from opposite ends of the Serie A table will meet on Monday for Sampdoria vs Inter. The Nerazzurri have found their form after struggling in the first half of the season. Currently sitting at 2nd, Inter will try to stay consistent and continue their momentum to catch Napoli. However, it will be hard to cover 13 points, and Inter will have to wait for a slip from Napoli. They will face Sampdoria, who managed to get a point away from Monza in their last match.
Sampdoria have been struggling both on and off the pitch. The historic club is at risk of going bankrupt if they don’t find a solution soon. Moreover, Monza scored the equalizer in the dying minutes of added time to snatch a point. It would have been their third win of the season as they sit at 19th position with a relegation scare over their heads.
Sampdoria vs Inter Serie A: team news, tactics, and prediction
Inzaghi could start Lukaku for this game, as the Belgian has fully recovered from his injury. He will join Lautaro in attack, who is in prolific goal-scoring form. The Argentine and his team are high on confidence after the Derby Della Madonnina win. Gosens could get a start as Inzaghi will look to rotate his side.
Dejan Stankovic came to steady Sampdoria’s sinking ship, but they are still struggling to move up the table. Also, their big injury list has not helped the new manager. He will miss his experienced striker Fabio Quagliarella due to a calf injury. Mehdi Leris is out serving his suspension, so Alessandro Zanoli will replace him on the right.
The odds are stacked against Sampdoria. They will have to put on an exceptional performance in front of their home crowd to get something from this game.
Sampdoria 0-2 Inter Milan.
