      Sampdoria vs Napoli Predictions

      Sampdoria probably are not going to get seriously dragged into Serie A’s relegation battle, but it has been an ugly season for them and they will want some results before the end of February to ensure that things don’t get any worse.

      Recent form has been classic of Sampdoria. They battled hard, but ultimately feel against the currently dominant Juventus, before following that result up with a less impressive 2-1 loss to a team currently in the bottom three in Carpi.

      Three straight Serie A wins over Torino, Frosinone and Sassuolo have seen Napoli move to the top of the Serie A table and for now hold off charging defending champions Juventus. Still, while Juventus keep up their momentum, Napoli cannot afford to put a foot wrong, they have command at the top of the table by only a two-point margin.

      Three Reasons for Betting Tips

      1. Sampdoria’s vulnerable defence

      They’ve conceded six goals in three games in 2016, 32 in 20 games overall this season. They play an attacking brand of football, but they always concede goals and that could spell trouble against a very good attacking Napoli side.

      2. Napoli’s form

      Napoli have scored 10 goals in three games since the calendar turned to 2016, they’ve won their last two games by a combined six goals and we’ll back them to cover the Asian Handicap on this occasion as well.

      3. Game will have lots of goals in it

      Besides the two teams respective records, their intent and playing style should lead to a game where they are plenty of goals. Our correct score prediction currently anticipates four, but it could easily be more.
