Bologna have won their last two Serie A games against Sampdoria, as many as they had won over their previous 19 meetings against the Blucerchiati.
Samp are unbeaten in their last nine home games against Bologna (W6 D3). The Rossoblu’s last win at the Ferraris was in March 1998 (3-2).
The Blucerchiati have won back-to-back Serie A games after having taken just two points from their previous six league fixtures – the last time they managed to win three Serie A games in a row was in March 2015.
Samp have lost only one of their last nine home games in the league (W5 D3), keeping a clean sheet four times in the process.
Bologna have lost the last two league games: they haven’t lost three Serie A matches in a row since April 2016.
Sampdoria have scored seven goals via substitutes, the most in Serie A.
Bologna have conceded goals in the last 15 minutes in each of the last three league games: only Crotone (12) have conceded more than Bologna in this period (11).
Samp defenders Matias Silvestre and Milan Skriniar have passed the ball to each other 485 times – more than any other defending pair so far in this competition.
Mattia Destro has netted four goals in seven league appearances against Sampdoria, including in each of the last two.
Fabio Quagliarella has failed to score in his last 10 Serie A appearances – the last time he couldn’t find the net for 11 consecutive games was in December 2015.
