The in-form Sampdoria welcome a vulnerable AC Milan side to the Stadio Luigi Ferraris in the Coppa Italia round of 16 hoping to end a two-game losing streak against the fallen giants.
Sampdoria’s promising seven-game unbeaten run in all competitions (W5, D2) was brought to an end on the eve of the New Year break, as they’ve suffered a 2-1 loss to Juventus at the Allianz Stadium. However, the Blucerchiati have racked up a four-game home winning run, scoring over 1.5 goals per match in each victory, while keeping a clean sheet twice during that period. Unlike Milan, Marco Giampaolo’s players have been impressive in the final third lately, scoring over 1.5 goals per match six times in a row before their trip to Turin. Five of Sampdoria’s six encounters with top-six Serie A sides have produced over 2.5 goals while four of them ended with both teams scoring.
Meanwhile, the visitors come into this meeting after a 2-1 home win over SPAL, which has brought their five-game winless run to an end (D3, L2). What’s more, the Rossoneri are winless in their last five road clashes in all competitions (D4, L1), with both of their previous two draws ending with the identical 0-0 scoreline. Unconvincing in the final third, Gennaro Gattuso’s men have scored just three goals in the past six competitive encounters, failing to hit the back of the net four times in the run. For Milan, goals have been at a premium in their last seven road games, with six of them produced under 2.5 goals while the Rossoneri failed to score over 1.5 goals in each.
