Italy - Serie A 2018/2019
Draw no bet - 1
Coaches Marco Giampaolo and Roberto De Zerbi have earned plaudits for the style of football and giant-killing exploits this season, mounting credible pushes for European ambition despite limited resources. Rogerio sits out a ban for the visitors, with Federico Peluso and Alfred Duncan likely to miss out through injury. Filip Djuricic remains the favorite to start in the trident attack with Kevin-Prince Boateng and Domenico Berardi, sending Federico Di Francesco to the bench again. The Sampdoria treatment room is slowly emptying out, with only Vasco Regini remaining for another three months. Gianluca Caprari is back and the favorite to take the role behind Fabio Quagliarella and former Sassuolo striker Gregoire Defrel. Although veteran hitman Quagliarella had a spectacular start to the season, scoring two in his first three games, he hasn’t found the back of the net in his last five appearances.
