Match Preview

  • The final round of Serie A (SA) gets under way with a dead-rubber affair between relegated Brescia (W1, L4) and Sampdoria (W2, L3). Each of Brescia’s last six league games saw them concede first, whilst five saw them ship at least two goals. In fact, Brescia have picked up a league-low four points – from a possible 57 – when conceding first (W1, D1, L17).
  • Brescia have conceded an average of 1.22 goals per second half at home this SA campaign, in comparison to just 0.61 before HT. Moreover, the hosts have shipped only one fewer goal between 61’-75’ (ten) than they’ve done so in the entire first halves of their SA home games.
  • Similarly, Sampdoria have scored 68.09% of their overall SA goals beyond HT, bagging as many between 76’-FT (15) as in the first half. Only relegated Spal have conceded more opening goals than Sampdoria’s 25 this term, though they have picked up more points when conceding first than all but two sides (W6, D1, L18).
  • The visitors’ away games have been light on goals before HT, with Sampdoria seeing under 1.5 first-half goals in 72.22% of their SA road trips, whilst both teams have scored before the interval just once (HT: W3, D7, L8).
  • Players to watch: Brescia’s Ernesto Torregrossa has scored or received a yellow card in four of his last seven appearances (two apiece).
  • Manolo Gabbiadini has enjoyed his finest top-flight scoring campaign (11 goals), and Sampdoria have netted 3+ goals in three of his last four scoring appearances.
  • Stat attack: Brescia have won just once when starting as home outsiders this SA season (W1, D4, L10).
  • Sampdoria won both away league games they started as favourites this term.
  • Brescia lost at HT and FT in the previous three H2Hs.
  • Eighteen of Sampdoria’s 22 away league goals were scored after HT (1.0 per-match on average).
