Football Data facts and figures on Sampdoria v Genoa

Let’s look at some statistics from both sides ahead of Sampdoria v Genoa on Saturday.

Sampdoria and Genoa have met 112 times in the past. The Blucerchiati’s record stands at 39 wins, 44 draws and 29 defeats.

Saturday’s game will be the 14th time this fixture has been played in October. Doria have won four, drawn the same number, and lost five of the previous 13. Two of these matches actually came on 22 October albeit both in Serie B. Samp have fond memories of the derby on 17 October 1948, which ended 5-1 in their favour – the biggest winning margin of all time in this fixture.

Marco Giampaolo’s side haven’t won since late August when, after beating Atalanta, they sat top of Serie A. The Blucerchiati have lost four and drawn two since then. As for the derby, Samp are also on a relatively bad run. Believe it or not, they haven’t won this fixture as the nominal “home side” since 2012. They did however win as the “visitors” in January 2016.

The Rossoblu are one of the division’s most in-form sides. Juric’s men have lost just once so far this term, conceding just five goals in the process. They have recorded two goalless draws already this season.
