Juventus are entering this game on the back of winning their first leg Europa League round of 16 contest against Freiburg in midweek.
Juventus will be hoping to get back to winning ways in Serie A when they host bottom-placed Sampdoria on Sunday night. The upcoming contest will be heavily in favour of the home side. Not only that the hosts have the squad quality and depth on their side, but the away side’s miserable campaign till now also works in favour of the Old Lady. With just two wins to show from their below-average league campaign till now, Sampdoria are in big trouble. It would require a miracle for them to climb out of the bottom three places now.
As for Juventus are concerned, this season has been a roller-coaster ride of emotions for them. They have had their moments this campaign, however, as a whole it has been a less-than disappointing one. Combined with their off the pitch issues that resulted in points deduction, Juventus’ form this season has been mediocre on the pitch too. They are placed far behind the title contenders and Champions League chasing sides. If at all they are to produce a good end to the season, Juve need to win most of their matches from now on till the end of the campaign.
Besides, Juventus are entering this game on the back of winning their first leg Europa League round of 16 contest against Freiburg in midweek. However, they lost their last Serie A game to Roma. As things stand, Juventus have 35 points from 25 games to be placed eight in the standings. Meanwhile, Sampdoria are rooted to the foot of the Serie A standings. They could only manage 12 points from 25 games, having only won two games in the league and lost an astonishing 17 already.
