Practice games and tactics at the Mugnaini, final session and news conference on Friday

Sampdoria were back in Bogliasco on Friday morning to continue preparing for Sunday’s clash with Hellas Verona.

After a squad meeting, the players warmed up before focusing on tactical drills and practice games. Three Primavera players – Francesco Scotti, Ognjen Stijepovic and Andrea Tessiore – joined in with the first team, while Dennis Praet continued working on his personal recovery plan.

On Saturday, the squad will have a final session behind closed doors before Marco Giampaolo holds a pre-match press conference (live updates on Twitter, highlights on Samp TV).
