Sampdoria host AS Roma at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris in Serie A on Sunday, looking to build on their latest win.

La Samp beat promoted side Venezia 2-0 away from home before heading into the international break which ended a run of three consecutive top-flight defeats.

It opened up a seven-point gap between them and the relegation zone but Marco Giampaolo's side face another huge test.

The Giallorossi are currently on a nine-game unbeaten run in Serie A, but have won only five times during this period, including a stunning 3-0 defeat of Lazio before the international break.

Sampdoria vs AS Roma Head-To-Head

Roma have won 18 of their last 39 matches with Sampdoria, losing nine.

The Giallorossi were beaten 2-0 in their last away match against La Samp in May 2021 but the sides played out a 1-1 draw at the Stadio Olimpico in the December reverse.

Sampdoria vs AS Roma Prediction

Roma are in good shape with their injury woes largely subsided and come into the match as favorites.

Sampdoria defeated them on their last visit to Genoa but a repeat is unlikely given their contrasting form.

With Abraham firing on all cylinders, the Giallorossi should come away with all three points.
