Monday – the Stadio Luigi Ferraris – Kick-off 8:45pm GMT.
Sampdoria head into a new year with the aim of stepping up a gear and become one of the top teams in the competition
During last year, Sampdoria reached the 9th position in the standings after a hard year. Regarding this season, players must train hard and play every game as if it is their last to survive in the Serie A.
Attack is the best form of defence, or that is what the saying warns about, and that is what we can say today about the performance of the team last year, which was noteworthy, with a balance of 52 for and 54 goals against.
New season for Milan; they will try to set new targets
During last season, Milan reached the 2nd position in the standings after a hard year. For this season, they’ll try to improve their records with hard work to meet the requirements of the Serie A.
The 74 – 41 record show what AC Milan was capable of doing last year; hence, this season the team has to play better if they want to live up to the expectations.
Stefano Pioli will be forced to make changes to the plans for his squad, as injury or illness has depleted him of two of his Milan players.
