The Blucerchiati have changed coach and will try to recover immediately but Roma can take advantage of their issues in the first 45 minutes.
Although Sampdoria is currently sitting at the bottom of the Serie A standings, the Blucerchiati are a good side. Former Roma coach Claudio Ranieri just took the leadership of the group to fix the situation and change the direction of a ship in stormy waters.
But Paulo Fonseca is not willing to lose other points on the road. The Portuguese coach will not be able to play many injured players but Perotti and Under should be available after a long time. Even if Edin Dzeko is likely out of the challenge due to his recent surgery, Kalinic, Kluivert, and Zaniolo must speed up their plays and find the opener during the first half.
Stats confirm that Sampdoria is weak in the first 45 minutes. Under Di Francesco‘s management, the Blucerchiati conceded 9 goals without scoring any. In the first 7 matches of the Serie A edition 2019-20, instead, Roma scored 7 goals before the halftime break.
Fonseca and his men must be aware of Ranieri’s tactical ability but according to numbers, the Giallorossi should put Sampdoria under pressure from the beginning of the match.
