Things are bleak for rock-bottom Sampdoria after four defeats in their opening five Serie A (SA) matches (W1). This game’s hosts have scored just three goals this season (all of them in the second half), and they’ve been losing at half-time in all four of their losses. However, Sampdoria did win their last home game 1-0, a result that means only one side has scored in the last three SA matches here (W2, L1) – something that’s also occurred in their last eight SA home victories. The last time Sampdoria kept a clean sheet against Internazionale though, was back in 2016.
The hosts couldn’t ask for a worse opponent, as Inter have won all five league matches keeping a first-half clean sheet in each. The visitors have also won the last four H2Hs, opening the scoring in each, which has also been the case in all of their league games this season. Travelling fans will be cautious though, considering 69.7% (23 of 33) of the goals their team conceded last SA campaign came on the road. However in terms of the H2H, the last time Inter conceded over 1.5 goals here in a top-flight fixture was back in 2005.
