Sampdoria to Lay on Another Goal for Quagliarella

May 17, 2019


Sampdoria v Chievo – 19th May – 11:30 BST

Chievo and Sampdoria have nothing for which to play other than enabling their strikers to achieve personal goals so Sunday’s Italian Serie A game lends itself to exotic bets.

Sergio Pellissier is set to captain Chievo for the last time at the home of the Flying Donkeys and it is only natural the 40-year-old forward will be keen to score one final Italian Serie A goal in front of his adoring fans. Sampdoria striker Fabio Quagliarella tops the Italian Serie A goal-scoring ladder with two rounds remaining and his Samp colleagues have been going out of their way to lay on chances for him to find the back of the net in their recent matches.

According to one’s Italian Serie A collateral form analysis. there is a case for backing Sampdoria to beat Chievo on the road because Samp enjoys a big 15-2-2 lead over the Flying Donkeys. Sadly, the result of Sampdoria’s 37th Italian Serie A game does not mean as much to Samp as Quagliarella adding to his goal tally so one cannot wager money on them bagging three points this weekend. Quagliarella has scored in three of Sampdoria’s last four Italian Serie A games but Samp have collected only one point from those matches, losing at home to Lazio and Empoli during that period. But one thinks there is an argument for backing Quagliarella to score a goal versus Chievo at any time as he chases personal glory. And having a dabble on Pellissier rustling the onion bag makes sense as well. Odds-on punters could do worse than back both Chievo and Sampdoria to score in Sunday’s dead rubber.

Torino v Empoli – 19th May – 14:00 BST

TOP TIP! – Torino to beat Empoli @ 2.70

Both Empoli and Torino have reason to take Sunday’s Italian Serie A clash between them seriously and one is keen on the chance of the Maroons securing three points on the road at 2.70  with Black Type.

Empoli is unbeaten in its last 12 home games against Torino across all competitions but the Blues are facing relegation from Italian Serie A because they occupy the 18th rung on the ladder. Also, Torino has a streak of its own going in that the Maroons are undefeated in their last eight Italian Serie A matches as they try to reach the UEFA Europa League.

According to one’s Italian Serie A collateral form analysis, Torino boasts an imposing 15-3-1 advantage over Empoli and December’s reverse fixture resulted in an easy 3-0 home win for the Maroons. The only team versus which Empoli has gone better than Torino is Cagliari and one is not going to get too excited by results against the 14th-ranked side. Torino has lost just once on its Italian Serie A travels and, with one point likely to be of limited appeal to either Empoli or the Maroons, take a punt on the visitors accruing three.

Napoli v Internazionale

Napoli v Internazionale – 19th May – 19:30 BST

TOP TIP! – Napoli and Internazionale to draw @ 3.40

For one’s third and final Italian Serie A selection one could have played it safe and opted for Milan to defeat Frosinone on Sunday but there is greater value in backing the draw in the game between Napoli and Internazionale at 3.40  with Bet365.

Napoli holds a slight Italian Serie A collateral form edge over Internazionale but the Partenopei and the Black and Blues were tied at 6-1-6 before the former pulled away to prevail 9-3-7 overall. Napoli has more injury problems than Internazionale, though, and the Partenopei have less for which to play than the Black and Blues given the state of the Italian Serie A ladder and UEFA Champions League spots.


Udinese 7-2-10

Genoa 9-2-8

Sassuolo 7-3-9

Chievo 2-2-15

Empoli 1-3-15

Parma 7-3-9

Milan 14-2-3

Juventus 11-1-7

Napoli 9-3-7

Lazio 10-5-4
