Competition: Coppa Italia
Market: Both teams to score
Odds: 7/10 @ 888sport
Two sides who will be looking to extend on their Coppa Italia adventure on Thursday night, Sampdoria will host Torino in a contest that could see chances at both ends of the pitch.
Starting with the hosts, managing to make a much-needed return to winning ways over the weekend, there is no doubt that Sampdoria will be desperate to build off of that display. Eventually claiming a 3-1 victory away at relegation scrappers Genoa, the Blucerchiati now have their sights set on trying to improve on their recent issues on home soil. Last seen at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris getting hit with a deserved 3-1 loss against Lazio on December 5th, Roberto D’Aversa’s men have lost three of their last four contests in front of their own supporters. Gaining a reputation recently for their lively outcomes at both ends of the pitch, each of Sampdoria’s last four contests have finished with a 3-1 scoreline. Likewise, it should also be noted that each of Sampdoria’s last six home fixtures have finished with both teams finding the net.
As for the visitors, managing to snatch a 2-1 victory against Bologna over the weekend, Torino almost find themselves in a similar spot to Thursday’s opponents. Another Serie A side who almost sit in top-flight limbo, the Bulls have gained a reputation for their inconsistencies. Including back-to-back 1-1 and 2-2 draws against Cagliari and Empoli earlier in the month, Head Coach Ivan Jurić has seen his side win just a pair of their last six contests. Showing some extended issues at the back, something that once again haunted them last season, Torino could be bracing themselves for another lively affair at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris on Thursday night. With each of their last four fixtures finishing with both teams finding the net, we’re backing a similar outcome here.
Bet: Both teams to score at Sampdoria vs Torino 7/10 for Thursday’s Coppa Italia showdown @ 888sport
