Match Facts

 

Sampdoria has scored in each of their last 12 Serie A home matches and the last time they enjoyed a longer such streak was a decade ago – in September 2010.

Though the goals have somewhat dried up for their most reliable outlet Quagliarella in recent games, Samp has managed to draw upon a healthy tally from midfield and out wide – with Morten Thorsby and Tommaso Augello proving their prowess of late.

Milan has now won their last six away league games and they have only surpassed that total twice before in their illustrious history – with Fabio Capello‘s 1993 wonder team (nine) and in 1964 under club legend Nils Liedholm (seven).

They have been reliant on Zlatan Ibrahimovic for both goals and inspiration during that run, but have also proven that they can hit the net without him during spells of injury and illness this season.

Verona vs Cagliari Head-to-Head

AC Milan has an exceptional record against Sampdoria and has won 22 matches out of a total of 37 games played between the two teams.

Sampdoria has managed only eight victories against AC Milan and will need to step up to the plate in this game.

The previous meeting between these two teams earlier this year was largely a success for Sampdoria as they held the Rossoneri to a 0-0 stalemate.

AC Milan has shown tremendous improvement over the past few months and should be able to win this game.
