AS Roma have the chance to make it three league wins in a row when they visit bottom club Sampdoria in Matchday 10 of Serie A. The Giallorossi come into the game off consecutive 2-1 victories over Inter and Lecce respectively, and will be seeking a further three points at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris.
Despite their Europa League struggles, Jose Mourinho‘s side have enjoyed a solid domestic start and could force their way into the top four with victory.
Sampdoria, meanwhile, are in turmoil and sit rooted to the foot of the Serie A table without a victory all season.
