Sampdoria vs Inter Milan Live

Stadio Luigi Ferraris serves as the setting for this high-stakes match, as second from top meets with second from bottom in Serie A this Monday, with Inter Milan set to make the trip to Genoa to lock horns with Sampdoria, hoping to keep pace and maintain their runners-up position, albeit the gap between themselves and league leaders Napoli is too large.

Put simply, Sampdoria desperately need a win here as they continue to plunge deeper and deeper into the relegation zone with each passing week. After four losses in a row, Dejan Stankovic’s men were just moments away from recording their first league win since early January when a stoppage-time penalty threw a spanner in their works last Monday.

Matteo Pessina fired home a 99th-minute penalty kick to earn Monza a dramatic 2-2 home draw, leaving the Genoa-based outfit a whopping nine points off safety. With their 11-season Italian top-flight stay in serious peril for the first time in a long while, Stankovic’s job could be on the line if they extend their dismal six-game losing run at home against Inter.

Team News & Tactics

Sampdoria

 

If Sampdoria’s dismal run of form was not enough to dampen the optimism at Ferraris, injuries and suspensions have taken their toll on the Blucerchiati. Sampdoria will be without the services of several key players, including Fabio Quagliarella, Manuel De Luca, Andrea Conti, Ignacio Pussetto (knee), and Abdelhamid Sabiri (thigh), while Mehdi Leris is suspended due to over-accumulation of yellow cards.

Dejan Stankovic could deploy a 3-4-1-2 formation to balance his side’s defensive organisation ahead of the arrival of an Inter team brimming with offensive talent. Emil Audero should start in goal behind a back three of Bruno Amione, Bram Nuytinck, and Koray Gunter, flanked by wing-backs Alessandro Zanoli and Tommaso Augello, with the former replacing suspended Leris.

Tottenham loanee Harry Winks and Michael Cuisance will form the double pivot and a screen for the Sampdoria back-five. Attacking midfielder Filip Djuricic has a good record against Inter, having tallied three goal contributions in his last six outings. The Serb will look to engineer a few chances for the front two of Sam Lammers and Manolo Gabbiadini, with the latter fit and available to start.

With four goals this season, the Italian striker is Sampdoria’s top goalscorer, having netted both goals against Monza in the last game. He may provide an indirect threat from set pieces. Former Real Madrid and PSG forward Jese Rodriguez has recently been snapped up on a free transfer to bolster the hosts’ deflated attack.
