Last year Sampdoria didn't do too bad finishing fourteenth and finishing 10 points ahead of the relegation zone. They will surely boast about being the only team last year to beat Juventus twice. They came into the league after being promoted from Serie B and were seen as one of the favourites to go down but that opinion soon changed once they beat AC Milan on the opening day of the season. They found consistency hard at the beginning as they went 5 games un beaten and then they lost 7 in a row but nevertheless they managed to secure Serie A status rather easily.
Expected finish = 12th - 15th
