La Vecchia Signora have been unstoppable in Serie A recently, but Al Hain-Cole thinks they will not find it easy when they take on Sinisa Mihajlovic's stubborn outfitJuventus will be looking to extend their remarkable Serie A winning streak to 12 games when they welcome Sampdoria to Turin on Saturday.
Antonio Conte’s men boast a perfect league record since losing to Fiorentina back in October and are overwhelming 1/6 (1.17) favourites with bet365 to pick up maximum points once again here.
I Blucerchiati are the last team to have beaten the hosts at the Stadio Juventus, having run out 2-1 winners last season despite going down to 10 men, but are huge 16/1 (17.00) outsiders to pull off another shock this time out.
Only Real Madrid and Galatasaray have left this stadium without tasting defeat this season after each earning 2-2 draws in the Champions League, but you can get odds of 11/2 (6.50) on the visitors becoming the first Serie A side to pick up an away point since last campaign.
After losing his unbeaten record with narrow defeats in difficult away games at Roma and Napoli last week, Sinisa Mihajlovic returned to form by overseeing an impressive 3-0 win over Udinese on Monday.
The Serbian manager has now won three and lost just one of his seven league matches since taking charge at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris in November, guiding a team that was sitting in the relegation zone upon arrival to the comfort of mid-table.
The former Fiorentina boss will therefore be optimistic of extending his side’s impressive recent record against the champions, as August’s narrow 1-0 home defeat was their first against La Vecchia Signora in six matches, having won three and drawn two of the previous five.
While another victory seems unlikely considering their hosts’ irrepressible home form, a defensive record of seven goals conceded in nine games since Mihajlovic’s arrival suggests Sampdoria have enough about them to make life difficult for the hosts, just as they did for Roma and Napoli.
Considering under 2.5 goals have been scored in seven of Mihajlovic’s nine games in charge, odds of 27/20 (2.35) are not to be missed on no more than two going in when they take on a Juventus team that has not conceded at home in six Serie A fixtures.
