Over 2.5 goals at Brescia vs Sampdoria 1/2 for Saturday’s Serie A showdown
Competition: Serie A
Market: Over 2.5 goals
Odds: 1/2 @ 888sport
Two sides who have endured a worrying end to this year’s Serie A campaign, an already relegated Brescia will host Sampdoria from behind closed doors on Saturday evening.
Starting with the hosts, enduring what has been a torrid end to the 2019/2020 campaign, Brescia have long since relinquished their Serie A status. In their 37 top-flight matches this year, they have recorded just six wins, six draws, and 25 defeats, scoring 34 and conceding 78 in return. Collecting just a points tally of 24 and sat 12 points adrift of safety entering their final contest, it should also be noted that Brescia hold the second-worst defensive record in the division. As for their recent run of results, Saturday’s hosts have lost six of their last seven Serie A contests, including their last three matchups on the bounce. More worrying, conceding at least a pair of goals in each of their last six defeats, it is also worth highlighting that eight of Brescia’s last 10 contests have seen over 2.5 goals by the final whistle.
As for the visitors, really falling back to their early-season issues, Sampdoria have also endured their own worrying end to this year’s Serie A campaign. In their 37 top-flight matches this season, they have recorded 12 wins, five draws, and 20 defeats, scoring 47 and conceding 64 in return. With a points tally of 41, they open their final fixture of the year sat in 15th and with any chance of landing a top-half finish wiped off the table. As for their previous run of results, Sampdoria have lost their last three Serie A contests on the bounce and have also conceded at least a pair of goals in their last four contests on the bounce. It should also be noted, along with five of their last six matchups seeing over 2.5 goals by full-time, seven of their last nine away fixtures have finished in an identical outcome.
