Roma’s chances of finishing the top four are over, but they will still be keen to take a place in the European League. They will have an outside opportunity to do so, but they need to beat Sampdoria this weekend to keep those hopes alive.
Preview the Italian League
Roma were in a strong position to secure a European finish just two weeks ago, but a streak of one-in-six wins left them out of the needed places in Serie A. A response from the Italian giants will be needed if they have any chance of achieving sixth in number one this season. They are six points away from Lazio with five games left this season. To make matters worse, Lazio has a postponed match against Roma. Roma may give up another place this weekend if they are beaten by Sampdoria. It is clear that their best hope in European football this season is in the European League. Roma are in a semi-final match against Manchester United on both sides of this match, which means it will be interesting to see if the coach has chosen to rest a number of his stars.
Sampdoria are only two places behind Roma in the league standings, but the best place they can realistically finish this season is where they are at the moment. They are ten points behind eighth-placed Sampdoria, and 13 points behind Roma. Finishing ninth would be an excellent season for Sampdoria, but they need to recover from last week’s defeat to improve their chances. They were beaten by Sassuolo the last time. They failed to put gloves on their opponents in that match, as they only managed two shots on goal.
Sampdoria against Rome head on
Roma have a good record recently against Sampdoria, having won four of the previous five matches. Roma won the match between the two teams early in the season 1–0. Sampdoria’s last win came against Roma in the 2017-18 season in Roma.
Sampdoria vs Roma Predict
Sampdoria have been in a steady state for their previous six matches, while Roma have struggled with victories. The mobile side of the Europa League will be a distraction to this match, which is why we can see the hosts clamoring for points.
