Sampdoria vs AC Milan


Without winning the first five Serie A matches, for the first time since the 2013/14 season, Sampdoria’s problems continue.

Marco Giampaolo’s men suffered their third defeat this season after conceding twice in the last minutes of the first half against Hellas Verona last time (1:2).

The club could even equal their worst record after six games in 2013/14 if they lose again to Milan here.

There is no need to panic just yet if history does anything, as Sampdoria finished 12th in that previous start of the season.


Unlike their hosts, Milan have only lost once in Serie A in 2022 – no team in the top 5 European leagues can top this top form.

Last Saturday, Stefano Pioli’s men also celebrated a 3-2 derby victory over strong rivals Inter, but then only brought home a point in the UEFA Champions League match against Salzburg (1-1).

That match against Salzburg once again showed Milan’s tremendous willpower as they fought for a draw after falling behind in what was the fourth game of six unbeaten matches this season.
