Juventus – Sampdoria Preview:
On the 6th of January Juventus welcomes Sampdoria at the Juventus Stadium in Torino. The Old Lady will try to make positive return in a new year after Christmas break. The Serie A champions are eight points clear in the Serie A, and will try to hold up their winning way when they host the newly-promoted Sampdoria.
Juventus stand at the top of the Serie A with forty four points after eighteen games, having fourteen wins, two draws and two defeats. Their present domestic form has seen one loss from Milan and four straight wins in their last five matches. The Old Lady’s last five home games were ended with three wins, one draw and one defeat from Internazionzle. Juventus leads the Serie A standings all season and are second top scorers in the league with 39 goals.
Sampdoria are fifteenth in the league table with seventeen points after eighteen games. They have five wins, three draws and ten losses so far this season. Their present form has seen one win, one draw and three straight losses in their last five matches. Sampdoria’s last five games on the road has seen four defeats and just one draw.
Juventus won the league title last season without losing a match. They have lost twice this season, but still are eight points above Lazio. Sampdoria have lost ten games this season, so Juve are 27 points ahead of their opponents at the weekend.
Juventus can’t count on Mirko Vucinic cause of an ankle injury. So Antonio Conte is likely to use Alessandro Matri and Sebastian Giovinco. Stephan Lichtsteiner is another important absentee for the Bianconeri. He can’t feature via suspension. Mauricio Isla will replace him on the flank. Otherwise Juve have a full-strength squad.
Sampdoria will play without their captain Enzo Maresca, who is unavailable through injury. Goalkeeper Sergio Romero is under doubt. Tommaso Berni will take his place between the posts.
