Juventus hosts Sampdoria in round 6 of Italian Serie A. The match will be played on Sunday, September 26th at Allianz Stadium (Turin)
Juventus is now in a big game crisis. And it’s not just about Cristiano Ronaldo leaving for Manchester United. There were no top transfers in the summer. Andrea Pirlo failed in Turin, and the club’s management decided to bring back the experienced Massimiliano Allegri. So far, the specialist cannot return the team to the victorious path. The Italian needs time to build an efficient team. Only in the previous round of Serie A did the Zebras gain their first victory. However, Spezia created a lot of problems for Juventus. The Black-and-Whites won a comeback victory with a score of 2-3. Thus, the team from Turin finally left the relegation zone.

Sampdoria is a tough middle peasant in local football. The team was one line higher in Serie A than Juventus, but a bad result in the middle of the week changed the situation. After a 3-match unbeaten run (one victory and two draws), the Blue-circled lost for the second time in the season. Although the game was played in front of native fans, Roberto D’Aversa’s charges lost to Napoli and conceded four unanswered goals. The full advantage of the Neapolitans was embodied in such a bad result for the Genoese. Let us add that Sampdoria was far behind Napoli in terms of xG: 0.24 versus 3.30.
We assume that the fans will see goals from both sides in the upcoming match. There is little doubt that Juventus will score one or two goals. As for Sampdoria, it is a tough and uncomfortable opponent, who has such experienced players as Caputo, Candreva, Quagliarella, Gabbiadini, and others. The Blue-Whites will be motivated to score points as they need to make amends for a humiliating defeat to the Neapolitans. Juventus has problems not only in defense, but there is a game crisis in general. The Zebras exchanged goals with their opponents in four out of five rounds of the Italian Championship. Even teams like Empoli, Spezia, and Udinese upset the goalkeeper of the Old Lady. Considering all this, it is worth taking a closer look at the risky option with an exchange of goals scored.
