Coppa Italia brought us a good decent this week, as I turned my attention to two matches (Inter vs Bologna and Lazio vs Genoa) and we had three winning predictions and one loss. The last week ended very well too, with both predictions won at Manchester United vs Liverpool, including final score recommendation.

Now I turned my attention to one of the most attractive duels scheduled this Thursday in Coppa Italia. More exactly, AS Roma will welcome Sampdoria, fighting for a place in the Quarter Finals.

AS Roma

  • The hosts are yet to concede a goal in 2017, winning 1-0 over Genoa and 1-0 over Udinese, both games being played away from home.
  • To be honest, Roma do not have a big chance in Serie A title race, so Coppa Italia could be their main target this year.
  • The hosts are very strong at Olimpico, proof that managed to win ten of the last 11 official games, while the other game ended with a draw, 3-3 vs Austria Vienna in UEL.
  • Roma have one of the best attacks in Italy without a doubt, especially when they have the fans behind.
  • AS Roma are in pole-position at the bookmakers, with odds around 1.42 for a victory.


  • On the other hand, Sampdoria failed to impress us in the past few weeks, being very incostant the whole season so far.
  • The guests are coming here after five matches in a row without victory, all of them in Serie A (D2 - L3).
  • Sampdoria's biggest problems seems to be the defense, especially away from home.
  • Talking about their away record, the visitors are without victory since August 21st.
  • More exactly, they ticked three draws and six defeats since then.
  • What is important to know, Sampdoria managed to score in their last seven official trips, but unfortunately for them, they are yet to win.
  • The last two trips at Olimpico took place in 2016 and Sampdoria lost 1-2 (February) and 2-3 (September).
