MATCH PREVIEW

AS ROMA v SAMPDORIA (ITALY: SERIE A)

Two sides separated by just one point and boasting similar form will battle it out in this Serie A (SA) fixture, as Roma look to bounce back from their lowest points total at this stage since 2009/10.
The hosts are winless in three SA games (D2, L1), a run that came on the heels of three previous league victories. Ahead of this round Roma remain two points behind the top six, but have the league’s joint-second highest number of draws (four).
Their home form was blotted by a surprise 2-0 loss to Spal in their last SA outing here (W2, D2, L1), however that remains Roma’s only home game they have failed to score in. Despite that, their home average of 2.4 goals per match remains above the league home average of 1.52 goals.
Sampdoria are also winless in three (D1, L2) and start this round one point behind their hosts. They have the fourth-best SA defence this season with 11 conceded, albeit seven of those goals came in their last two matches.
The visitors have lost two of their five SA away games this season (W2, D1, L2), and have lost six of their last ten away league outings (W3, D1, L6), failing to score in five of those.
Players to watchStephan El Shaarawy (ROM) has a goal and an assist in his last three competitive matches, while Fabio Quagliarella (SAM) has two goals and three assists in his last five SA games.
Stat attack: Four of Roma’s five SA home matches ended with over 2.5 goals.
Sampdoria have conceded three of four SA away goals before half-time, while Roma have scored seven of 12 home goals in the first-half.
Sampdoria were goalless at the break in seven of the last ten competitive H2H encounters, winning at half-time in just one of those ten.
