The Serie A returns to the fold with another set of fixtures this weekend as Lazio lock horns with Sampdoria on Sunday. Both teams have been inconsistent this season and have a point to prove in this match.

Sampdoria are in 15th place in the Serie A standings and have largely failed to meet expectations this season. The home side suffered a 3-1 defeat against Fiorentina this week and will need to bounce back in this fixture.

Lazio, on the other hand, are in ninth place in the league table at the moment and are yet to hit their stride in the Serie A. The Biancocelesti played out an entertaining 4-4 draw with Udinese in their previous game and will need to bounce back this weekend.

Sampdoria vs Lazio Head-to-Head

Lazio have a good record against Sampdoria and have won 21 out of 37 matches played between the two teams. Sampdoria have managed eight victories against Lazio and will need to cut the deficit on Sunday.

The previous game between the two teams took place in February this year and ended in a 1-0 victory for Lazio. Sampdoria were impressive on the day but will need to be more clinical this weekend.
