Monza vs Sampdoria predictions and betting tips on February 6, 2023
On February 6, Brianteo (Monza) will host the match of the 21st round of the Serie A, in which Monza will compete with Sampdoria. The battle will start at 20:45 CET.
The team for more than a century of its history could not even come close to the level of the Serie A. The dream came true because of Silvio Berlusconi, who decided to choose this project a couple of years ago to return to high-level football. It took several years to get out of the third division of the country to the Serie A. At first, the debutant, even having signed up the contracts with a lot of newcomers, could not really show the desired result. When the coaching functions were entrusted to inexperienced Palladino, the situation changed dramatically. Under the rule of Raffaele, “the White and Reds” did not just start to take points, they also won quite often. Moreover, they did not slow down even after a long pause – a 2-0 victory in the previous round in Turin is more than an excellent proof. By the way, Juventus has been beaten before, and now Monza’s streak without defeats has already reached 6 rounds in a row.
The club degraded in a pretty fast way. It is reasonable to mention that the failure was actually formalized under the same mentor with whom the representative of Genoa “climbed” into European competitions – Giampaolo. Stanković, who replaced him in the autumn, did not become an analogue of Palladino, although he has got more coaching experience (to be frank that was at home and with a grandee). Being headed by Dejan, there were several victories, including the winter segment, which began with a 2-1 victory in the battle against Sassuolo. Still, the higher mentioned win was like a separate exception from the general miserable amount of constant and mostly “dry” defeats. 9 points after 19 rounds at the “equator” of the season looks like a sentence, and now it is not clear how the situation can be corrected. “La Samp” seems to have already come to terms with the fact that the next draw will be held in the Serie B.
The statistics of head-to-head matches
The clubs have not got any head-to-head match since 2001. The first one happened, taking into account the results of several previous decades, in October and resulted in a devastating away 3-0 victory of Monza.
Bookmakers do not believe in the transformation of Sampdoria. Let’s agree with them – we are not sure how huge the domination will be, but the newcomer should win. We bet on its victory with “a -1 goal handicap” (odd: 2.64).
