Action returns to the Italian Serie A this weekend after few weeks of rest from the grueling 2019/20 season in which Juventus emerged as champions again albeit not in the spectacular fashion their previous triumphs had been.
Even though many are being cautious of what the future holds for Juve under their rookie manager Andrea Pirlo, it is expected they would start out with a bang against Sampdoria who they would be hosting in Turin on Sunday.
Juventus recorded a double over Sampdoria last season in Serie A with Bianconeri winning 2-1 in the away fixture before returning to the J Stadium to win 2-0.
In both games, Cristiano Ronaldo scored for the Old Lady and it is not unlikely that the Portuguese will hit the ground running from matchday 1 on Sunday as he continues to chase more and more records with Juventus.
Juventus have won eight of their last 10 matches against Sampdoria. The Blucerchiati won just two of their last 10 games versus the Bianconeri. Two of the last six meetings between the clubs were won by Sampdoria, however, Claudio Ranieri’s team won those games playing at home.
For some exciting prospects of making some cool cash with Betpay this weekend, you can expect Juventus to be in firm control right from the first half and a mouthwatering 1.75 odds is up for the taking.
With Sampdoria shipping in 65 goals in the league last season, one can explore the option of Sunday’s tie producing over 2.5 goals especially as Juventus are not necessarily tightened at the back having also conceded 43 goals last season and there are no major changes in their backline for this new campaign.
Betpay offers an impressive 1.5 odds for over 2.5 goals
Juventus 3-1 Sampdoria
Odds for straight win is 1.29
Fiorentina v Torino
Fiorentina were a decent side last season and they have a good chance of kicking off with a victory, after their last two home games brought six points and no goals conceded. One of those wins was against this weekend’s opponents Torino, who have been active in the market themselves but are expected to fall short in Tuscany.

Verona v Roma
Roma will be disappointed to have missed out on the top four last season, and with teams strengthening around them an opening day win would be a big boost.

Parma v Napoli
Napoli showed plenty of promise under Rino Gattuso at the end of last season, and have added firepower with the signing of Victor Osimhen from Lille for a club record fee.
