Currently among the best performing and most improved squads of the season, Lazio and Sampdoria have spent their last several matches with great heights. Both ranked in the league table’s top five, the sides are expected to produce a thriller at the Stadio Olimpico on the first full week of 2015.


S.S. Lazio

I Biancocelesti earned a thrilling draw against Inter Milan 2-2 at the close of 2014, with a brace from Felipe Anderson serving as the battle’s highlight. They have, however, won every other single match they played in December, including two three-goal clean sheets against Varese in the Coppa Italia and one against Atalanta in Serie A. Thus far, Stefano Pioli’s men have already scored 27 points and 28 goals in 16 matches to rank them third in the league standings.


U.C. Sampdoria

Compared to last season, Sampdoria have tremendously improved this term. From being perched at the bottom half of the league table, the side successfully made a turnaround for the 2014-15 season and jumped as high as the third spot at some points of the top-flight tournament. Currently ranked fifth, I Blucerchiati spent the whole of December unbeaten. Their most notable win was against Hellas Verona in Serie A, when they bulldozed three points from the three goals delivered by Eder, Okaka, and Gabbiadini. Siniša Mihajlović’s lads also earned a clean sheet against Brescia at the Coppa Italia.


Football betting tip: Sampdoria will be able to fire equalizers against Lazio’s goals.
