Tip Reasoning

  • Napoli have only kept one clean sheet in their last six games, and just two in their last 12.
  • Both teams have scored in each of Sampdoria’s last eight matches.
  • Napoli thrashed Sampdoria 4-0 away from home in September’s reverse fixture.

Depleted Napoli claim valuable point

Napoli’s midweek 1-1 draw with Juventus may come to be seen as an excellent result; the Neapolitan side were left without a plethora of first team players thanks to injuries, Covid-19, and the African cup of nations, but performed admirably in Turin. Luciano Spalletti’s team have, however, won just one of their last six league games.

They will be hoping to rectify their recent form against a Sampdoria side who they hammered 4-0 back in September. Although Napoli’s record of 15 league goals conceded is still the joint-best in Serie A, they may no longer be able to rely quite so much on their defence, which has been creaking recently. They have kept just one clean sheet in their last six competitive games, and two in their last twelve.

Before Thursday’s abject (and deserved) loss to struggling Cagliari, Sampdoria had been on a four match unbeaten run. Roberto D’Aversa’s team have benefited from the fine form of Manolo Gabbiadini, who has scored in six consecutive league games, but have been leaky at the other end. Only four Serie A teams have worse defensive records than Sampdoria this season.

Napoli to win, but Sampdoria can breach much-changed backline

Sampdoria have seen both teams net in each of their last eight games, and given the recent paucity of Napoli’s defence, impacted heavily, no doubt, by Kalidou Koulibaly’s absence, backing them to net on Sunday seems a decent play.

However, despite their recent form, Napoli, who will at least welcome back a trio of suspended players for this clash, should demonstrate their superiority. A 3-1 home victory seems a solid correct score prediction.
