Bit of a dead rubber this one with nothing at stake for either Sampdoria or Juventus. That said Fabio Quagliarella will want to finish the season on a high with a goal in front of the home faithful as he celebrates lifting the Capocannoniere. Form Labs bring you their betting preview and tips for the game while we have the value with our enhanced odds.
Juventus Recent Form
Juventus netted an 80th-minute equaliser versus an in-form Atalanta side last weekend to salvage a point, although they’ve certainly taken their foot off the gas and are now winless from their last four outings.
In fact, they’ve gone W1-D4-L3 from their last eight matches across all competitions, including defeats in half their four winless trips.
That obviously isn’t what we’ve come to expect from a side that won 24 of their opening 27 unbeaten league matches of the season. However, given the circumstances, we’re hardly surprised by that decline in form as they have an ever-growing list of players on the sidelines.
Quagliarella Chasing The Capocannoniere
Marco Giampaolo’s charges are hardly excelling themselves though, losing five of eight matches since the start of April as their only victory came against 18th-placed Genoa.
The one thing the hosts do posses is the current frontrunner for the Capocannoniere, Fabio Quagliarella.
The striker has scored in 19 of his 27 appearances since late October, scoring as many as 24 times across them, and with a four-goal cushion to the next best he looks to have that individual accolade all wrapped up.
However, the veteran is unlikely to stop there knowing how crazy the final day of the season can be, as over the last five years, over 2.5 Goals occurred in 82% of the final day matches, compared to just 51% for the rest of the fixtures over that period.
Meanwhile, Over 3.5 Goals landed in 52%, compared to a mere 28% for the previous 37 rounds, and Quagliarella will want to register at least one more to settle his nerves.
Sampdoria v Juventus Betting Tips
A huge positive for Sampdoria will be that they won this exact fixture last season 3-2, while all three meetings since the start of last term have seen more than two strikes.
In fact, the last of them back in December saw Quagliarella get on the scoreboard and given Juve are missing the suspended Blaise Matuidi, in whose absence they’ve conceded 71% more goals on average in the eight matches he’s missed this term, taking them on in that department looks the value option.
Moreover, only four times from their 18 fixtures at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris have the hosts failed to register this term, including a three-goal haul past Napoli earlier on in the campaign.
