​Italian Serie A -- Sampdoria vs AC Milan Game Preview


When Inter Milan host Torino in the sixth round of Serie A this Saturday, they will finally have a relatively simpler matchup (on paper).


Sampdoria have only two points after five rounds, placing them third from the bottom. Their two goals are the fewest that any other squad has managed to score this season. They lost 2-1 away at Verona six days ago, despite Caputo's early goal.

AC Milan

On Saturday night, when AC Milan travel to play Sampdoria, they will be attempting to retain their undefeated record at the start of the 2022–23 season. With 3W-2D, the defending champions start this Gameweek just two points behind Atalanta. At Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, AC Milan defeated their fierce local rivals 3-2. Midweek saw more action for them as they kicked up their Champions League campaign with a 1-1 draw away at RB Salzburg.


Just twice in the first five games of this Serie A season have Sampdoria scored goals. With a simple three-pointer against Sampdoria, who have yet to win this season, I expect AC Milan to maintain their lead atop the rankings.

Pick: AC Milan -1
