Il Doria is a small and young club by Serie A standards, but they do have something a lot of other teams in the Italian top-flight struggle with – stability.
Most of their career in the league was spent as a middle-of-the-table kind of club, and they recorded 3 back-to-back seasons in the top 10 before the previous one. The 2019/20 season marked a considerable drop in form, though, as they had to settle for a disappointing 15th place finish.
Despite the outcome, Claudio Ranieri will retain his position of manager for another season. As far as outright Sampdoria betting goes, though, there aren’t many opportunities out there. Even a Top 10 finish seems distant at odds of 5.20, though finding such Serie A betting offers is quite difficult with most top online bookies.
Sampdoria Key Players
Though Fabio Quagliarella remains the backbone of Sampdoria’s offensive efforts, his performance in 2019/20 was a far cry from 2018/19’s Top Goalscorer title. The experienced vetar striker is not getting any younger and the club knew they had to react accordingly. He will be getting some much-needed backup this year, though, in the form of Keita Baldé who’s on loan from Monaco.
Ranieri also made effort to assemble a more varied and flexible lineup due to the recent failures of their fast-pressure approach. Mikkel Damsgaard will be another option on the left wing, and Leicester's Adrien Silva will offer the kind of presence in the midfield Sampdoria sorely lacked.
That said, Karol Linetty left for Torino, indicating a new range of set pieces are needed.
Sampdoria's fiercest rival is inner-city Genoa, with which they share Derby della Lanterna. The rivalry intensified in recent years, particularly since 2011 when more than 30 thousand Genoa fans staged a mock funeral through the streets of Genoa, carrying a blue-draped coffin, which symbolized Sampdoria. The Doriani were relegated that season, but they returned to the Serie A after only one year. Apart from Genoa, they are having a rivalry with Milan and Inter. The rivalry with clubs from the city of Milano started during their fight for the title in 1990/91 season, when Sampdoria emerged victorious and won their only Serie A title.
Sampdoria were founded in 1946, after a merger of two clubs, Sampierdarenese and Andrea Doria. However, the roots of these two clubs can be traced back to the 1890s, and Sampdoria fans are often stating that the club is much older because of that fact. The golden age of the club was during the late 1980s and early 1990s. They won their only Serie A title, Super Cup and four Italian Cups during that period. European success came with European Cup Winners Cup in 1990 as well, but the brightest moment in club history came in 1992, when they qualified for the European Cup final. They were playing against mighty Barcelona and lost by 1:0, after extra-time. Gianluca Vialli is regarded as the biggest club legend. He was the top scorer in Serie A when Sampdoria won Scudetto, and he was the top goalscorer in the club for six consecutive years. After his departure to Juventus, Sampdoria's power started to fade. After returning to Serie A, Sampdoria enjoyed seven stable years. In the last three seasons they even finished in the top ten on the table, and they are hoping that in the years to come they can return to the very top of Italian club football.
