The Luigi Ferraris Stadium will hold the Serie A match between hosts Sampdoria against visitors Inter on Sunday 30th of October at 20:45 CET.

After finally registering a win against Torino midweek, Inter travel to Liguria to face Sampdoria. Frank DeBoer has been vocal about wanting to see compactness and discipline from his side and will hope that this match is a platform on which to relaunch the Nerazzurri bid for an unlikely top three season finish.

Sampdoria have been in pretty poor form lately, and only have their fortuitous derby match against Genoa as their one victory in the last eight games. While the Doria have a pretty bad defensive record, having let in fifteen goals in their last eight games, it is important to remember that they have managed to score in all but two of their league games for far, and that their tricky forward Luis Muriel can trouble any defence.

Team News

The only real question mark about team selection will probably be whether FdB decides to start with Ivan Perisic up front or continue playing Eder ahead of the Croat, especially bearing in mind that the Italy international will be extra motivated to perform against his former side.

Yuto Nagatomo will probably start in left back to use his speed against Samp’s speedy Muriel, while almost all other choices will probably be unsurprising.

Probable Inter line-up (subject to change): (4-3-3) Handanovic; Ansaldi, Miranda, Murillo, Nagatomo; Brozovic, Banega, Mario; Candreva, Perisic, Icardi (C).

Stats

Last Season: Sampdoria 1 – 1 Inter

Last 10 Head to Head: in their last ten league games, Sampdoria have managed to beat the Nerazzurri just twice.

Player to Watch:

Mauro Icardi: Whether it’s off the pitch antics or on the pitch heroics, it’s difficult to call out an Inter player to watch this season that isn’t Maurito. The Inter captain rescued all three points against Torino with a stunning late goal and will be more than eager to get back to scoring ways against his former employers.

Officials

Referee: Paolo Mazzoleni Assistants: Alfonso Marrazzo, Giorgio Peretti Fourth Official: Giacomo Paganessi Additional Assistants: Marco Guida, Maurizio Mariani

Prediction & Authors Note

Prediction & scorers: Sampdoria 1 – 2 Inter with Eder and Icardi finding the back of the net against their former team.

Author’s Note: Inter have neither kept a single clean sheet so far this season nor have they broken the deadlock once, while Empoli have struggled to find the back of the net. Needless to say, it will be very interesting to see if De Boer can finally break the former two statistics or whether Empoli will continue Inter’s imperfect defensive record.

    Lol @ predicting inter win

    I’d recommend you have someone proof-read your articles before publishing. Your probable line-up doesn’t include Eder but you put him as a probable scorer. Then it the last paragraph you’re talking about Empoli instead of Sampdoria. I can almost smell the copy/paste 😉

  • ricardo latinoo

    some of you jokers think gabigol has the potential to be like adriano, hell no, he’ll just be like another quiaresma…

    • Azzkikr

      I certainly hope he wont be another Adriano.

      We dont need another alcoholic troublemaker.

      • ricardo latinoo

      what r u talking about ?

      • ricardo latinoo

        i’m talking about ranieri

  • casperv

    What a pretty useless “authors note”!!! Why talk about Empoli in this article, a mistake I guess…

    • Abdi

      He must be high on something lol. Inter have neither kept a single clean sheet so far this season (Yes we did against Empoli lol) nor have they broken the deadlock once (Yes we did in last game against Torino).

      • casperv

        I know very strange and completely useless comment now a days 😉

    • Abdi

      Theory nr 2. This authors note is from the Preview: Empoli-Inter. Makes more sense.

      • casperv

        Yes ist must be it.

  • Khazam Stutja

    Napoli has just lost. Come on boys. We still can get CL spot

    • casperv

      True, we have Sampdoria and Crotone next weekend! Plus Sarri told Inzigni to “shut up”after the game!! Don’t think he stays much longer than until January at Napoli! I’d by him and sell Perisic!!

        Agree, lets italianize our team with quality italians.

      • Dani Milekić

        Why get rid of Perisic for a player who ssems to be a troublemaker at Napoli?

        • casperv

          Don´t think Insigne is a trouble maker, he simply wants a better contract so maybe he’s a bit greedy or what ever. Still, Napoli is well known for being – I guess – the only team in the world that wants to keep all of the players image rights to themselves. That is something Insigne couldn’t accept so the negotiation of a new contract has been canceled, because of that the supporters have really turned on him and he has a couple times left the field crying because of them and now the coach told him to “shut up” after yesterdays game…
          Insigne is much more unpredictable and “fluent” in his game that the more “one-way” Perisic, whom I still consider a great winger!
