Max Statman



After a thumping victory at home against Sassuolo, Juventus will now be travelling to Luigi Ferraris Stadium as they face Sampdoria in the matchday 2. On the other hand, the ligurian club didn’t have one of the best starts to the season as they lost 2-0 to Atalanta at home and will surely be looking to bounce back.Here’s everything you need to know about the game in today’s Match Preview by The Calcio Guy:

Recent Form:


Juventus kicked off their Serie A campaign with a 3-0 win against Sassuolo last week. Debutant Angel Di Maria made it to the score sheet as he scored the first Juventus goal of the season, followed by a brace of goals from Bianconeri’s star striker Dusan Vlahovic.

Meanwhile Sampdoria struggled in the first home game of the season as they lost to travelling side Atalanta. Sampdoria are still trying to adapt to the life without their star players like Candreva and Damsgaard, who both went out in this summer. Juventus can capitalise on the flaws that Giampaolo’s men possess.

Probable Lineups:

Head to Head:



In 29 head-to-head encounters between the two sides, Juventus hold a clear advantage. They have won 17 games, lost five and drawn seven.The two clubs last faced each other earlier this year in Serie A, with Juventus beating Sampdoria 3-1. An own goal from veteran Japanese centre-back Maya Yoshida and a brace from Spanish striker Alvaro Morata ensured victory for Juventus. A goal from German midfielder Abdelhamid Sabiri proved to be a mere consolation for Sampdoria.

A Fact about the Opponents:

The Ligurian club was actually formed by the merger of two rival clubs Sampierdarense and Andrea Doria in 1946, which came together to battle it out against their common rival Genoa. Hence, the name “Sampdoria” was derived from the club names of the former two clubs (Samp from Sampierdarense and Doria from Andrea Doria). Even the kit colours represent the essence of both the clubs. The Club has somehow managed to incorporate all the colours of the former clubs in one design (blue-white from Sampierdarense and white-red-black from Andrea Doria).This has established them as a club that has one of the most unique home kit designs consisting of 4 different colours, which is blue with white, red and black bands across the centre of the shirt, hence the nickname blucerchiati (“blue-circled”).
