ROME resident Marco Di Cosmo (@scioltz) has highlighted his best bet from Serie A’s rescheduled Genoese derby between Sampdoria and Genoa on Tuesday night.
Sampdoria v Genoa | Tuesday 17.30 | BT Sport 1
Genoa are in stunning form at the moment. Having held Fiorentina in Florence they’ve gone on to beat Lazio in Rome and literally dismantled Verona last time out, scoring five goals!
The young French talent M’Baye Niang seems to have finally found his best form, scoring a hat-trick in that Verona victory, while the Argentinian Diego Perotti is showing what a quality player he is, if he can stay fit.
The Derby Della Lanterna is usually a tricky match, but due to the fact that the home ground effect is lowered by the teams sharing the same stadium, I often like to side with the underdogs. So, since Sampdoria will play this match ‘at home’, I will choose to lay them at good prices.
The Blucerchiati have lost their way of late and the loss of star striker Manolo Gabbiadini has hit them hard; Samuel Eto’o, his replacement, has yet to shine. I am happy to lay Sampdoria, expecting a tight match played at a high intensity in Genoa and so Coral’s 4/7 on the ‘away’ side in the Double Chance is catching my eye.
