Sampdoria v Torino Match preview
Both sides head into this encounter on the back of crucial wins at the weekend. However, it is Sampdoria who have far bigger problems than their guests from Turin. The Genoese club has improved in recent weeks, winning three out of the last five games. And Roberto D’Aversa would be hoping to see the team get better.
A lot of this is down to the timeless performances of veteran midfielder Antonio Candreva who has managed six goals and five assists in the league.
Torino meanwhile, seem to have finally gotten used to Ivan Juric’s football philosophy. With just 18 goals conceded in 17 games, Il Toro have found consistency as they look to make a rally for a European football spot.
