NO NEW NAMES
There are no new names in the Sampdoria line-up – but there are still many changes from the team who ended the season in a 1-1 draw at already-relegated Brescia.
Tommaso Augello, Lorenzo Tonelli, Fabio Depaoli and Mehdi Leris are the only ones who have retained their place.
Sampdoria are missing Manolo Gabbiadini and Kristoffer Askildsen who is suspended from last season, and with 37-year-old Fabio Quagliarella on the bench against his ex-side, it looks like Federico Bonazzoli will be leading the line on his own.
Morten Thorsby, who was sent off when these two met in July, also starts and keep an eye on defender Omar Colley who has been linked to Liverpool in recent days.
