Fundamental match at the Ferraris stadium in Genoa between the Dorians and Salernitana. Samp always looking for salvation points, the Campania eager to climb the standings and definitively abandon the hot zone. Sousa's men have won their last two games in the top league against Stanković's side and for the first time they can win three consecutive matches in the competition against a single opponent.
And it is Paulo Sousa, coach of Salernitana, to declare that it will not be easy: "In today's game there will be moments that can affect the result, we must make sure that they are favorable to us. We must have the same will, determination and survival instinct that they have had until today. Sampdoria are a super competitive team throughout the game, they play at home and will certainly have extra motivation. All matches must be important to us, we must focus on our collective and individual tasks. I think we get closer to winning games when we are closest to our identity. We are trying to acquire a strong mentality regardless of the opponent we face, to try to win always."
To continue hoping for salvation, the hosts against Salernitana can not go wrong. A victory would be a good start for a possible run-up that, to date, seems far-fetched. For the blucerchiati, struggling with a very complicated corporate situation, it would be really difficult to digest yet another defeat. Sampdoria coach Dejan Stankovic continues: "We need points to move up the standings, we need a performance from Sampdoria. We know that we will find an opponent invigorated by the success at Monza but, in front of our fans who support us in every situation, we must play without fear, above all without fear of making mistakes. We must give continuity to the performance of Rome which was one of the most positive both from a technical-tactical point of view and from a physical point of view, We held our own against a team that beat Napoli in advance of this round and this aspect must give us even greater strength and awareness in our means, despite the emergency situation that recurs this time in attack ".
