Serie A action will take center stage this weekend and Sunday's early kickoff will see Juventus host Sampdoria in a matchday six fixture.

The home side showed great spirit to come from a goal down to secure a 3-2 away victory over Spezia on Wednesday. Federico Chiesa and Matthijs de Ligt scored two second-half goals to turn the game around for the Turin giants.

Sampdoria suffered a harrowing 4-0 defeat to Napoli on home turf on Thursday. In-form Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen inspired victory for the Neapolitans with a brace.

That defeat meant that only goal difference currently separates Juventus and Sampdoria in the standings. Both sides have garnered five points from as many matches to sit 12th and 13th in the table respectively.

Juventus vs Sampdoria Prediction

On paper, Juventus should easily win this one but the Bianconeri have been so out-of-sorts this season that it is difficult to know which side will turn up. Wednesday's victory will go a long way in boosting confidence and the home support will be expecting their team to kickstart their season with another win.

Sampdoria have also struggled for consistency but on their day, the Genoa side have what it takes to square off against any opponent in the league. Both sides have struggled defensively so this might translate into goals at both ends.

However, we are backing Juventus to nick all three points with a narrow victory.

Prediction: Juventus 2-1 Sampdoria
