GEN vs SAM Dream11 Prediction for Genoa vs Sampdoria Serie A Live Score Fantasy Football Tips & Dream11 Team


GEN vs SAM Dream11: Serie A action rolls onto a action-packed December, as there are three matchdays before all teams head out for a break. Genoa are languishing on the 19th spot in the league table, being 2 points away from safety. Genoa’s last victory came against Cagliari way back in September, and they have struggled with their form ever since. Six losses and seven draws is all they could manage in the last three months of football.

Sampdoria have not been too impressive either, as they are currently placed 15th on the points table. They come into the fixture on the back of two consecutive defeats to Lazio and Fiorentina. It is a vital match for Sampdoria, given that they could want to keep away from the relegation battle.

Date: 11 December, Saturday
Kick-Off: 01:15 AM (IST)
Venue: Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris
