Fantasy Football Tips

Captain Options

Antonio Candreva – With 11 goal contributions (5 goals and 6 assists), Antonio Candreva has been one of Sampdoria’s best players. He has created 67 chances and completed an impressive 50 accurate crosses. Candreva has 28 successful dribbles at a 56% completion rate as well.

Fabio Quagliarella – The Italian veteran has scored 12 goals and provided 1 assist so far this season. He has created 19 chances, attempted 27 shots on target and succeeded in 16 of his attempted dribbles. Quagliarella also came off the bench to grab the winner against Udinese and that should warrant a start for him.

Differential Pick

Hernani – Hernani has been the only Parma player who has been consistent throughout. He has scored 7 goals and provided 3 assists so far as well. The Brazilian international has created 37 chances, attempted 9 shots on target and succeeded in 34 dribbles (67% completion rate). He has also completed 21 accurate crosses despite playing centrally.

SAM vs PAR Dream 11 Teams

Goalkeeper – Sepe
Defenders – Yoshida, Colley, Augello
Midfielders – Candreva (C), Ekdal, Hernani, Brugman
Forwards – Gervinho, Gabbiadini, Quagliarella (VC)

Likely Winner:

The SAM vs PAR Today Match Prediction is a rather inconsequential game for both sides. The result will not affect Sampdoria’s position in the league table, nor will be change Parma’s relegation. However, neither side will want to close the season on a whimper. Sampdoria should win this game comfortably as Parma has only managed 3 wins and a massive 23 defeats all season. They have also managed to concede 80 goals in 37 games, the second-most in the league. While Sampdoria has not been exceptional, they have done well for themselves and should see this as an easy 3 points.
