Sampdoria on home loss to Juve at the Luigi Ferraris Stadium on Saturday. Both Sampdoria and Juventus arrived in good form, having secured victories in their previous matches. Sampdoria were keen to hang onto their position at the top of league and extend their winning run after winning their previous two matches against Parma away and Udinese at home, by 2-0 and 2-1 respectively. Juventus, on the other hand, were coming from a 2-0 win against Bologna. As things stand, Sampdoria are currently 10th with 26 points from 20 matches, while Juventus sit in 4th, with 36 points from 20.

Juventus scored first, following Federico Chiesa opening the scoring in the 20th minute, thereby seeing the first half to a 1-0.

Juventus continued to pile on the pressure the second half and were rewarded, thanks to Aaron Ramsey opening the scoring just before the final whistle, which sealed the victory for the visitors.

For Sampdoria, Mikkel Damsgaard, Ernesto Torregrossa, Gaston Ramirez and Jakub Jankto came on for Rodrigo Bentancur, Alvaro Morata, Arthur and Federico Chiesa, while Juve brought on Adrien Rabiot, Federico Bernardeschi, Aaron Ramsey and Alex Sandro to replace Rodrigo Bentancur, Alvaro Morata, Arthur and Federico Chiesa.

There were bookings for Morten Thorsby, Albin Ekdal, Jakub Jankto and Mikkel Damsgaard from Sampdoria and Rodrigo Bentancur and Federico Bernardeschi for Juve.
