Napoli remain in the hunt for the Serie A title this season despite having points taken away from them for breaching COVID protocols. They can continue to put pressure on AC Milan with another win this weekend.
Serie A Preview
Napoli are one of two teams that are yet to draw a game this season, but only AC Milan have won more games than them after ten rounds of fixtures. They have been in excellent form in front of goal, as they have scored 24 goals, which is the second-highest total in the top-flight. Napoli have won four of their last six league games, which includes the back to back wins that they have recorded over previous weeks. These two wins have come against Roma and Crotone, and they have been two of their best performances of the season. They have scored eight goals in these two games. Their 4-0 win away from home against Crotone was their last fixture, with Lorenzo Insigne among the scorers. There were also goals for Hirving Lozano, Diego Demme and Andrea Petagna in that big victory.
Sampdoria have been in disappointing form over recent weeks, as they have failed to win in five Serie A fixtures. They have lost three times during this run of form, and have managed to pick up just two points from a possible 15. That run of form has seen them dropping down the table, but there is still a comfortable five-point cushion between themselves and the drop zone. Sampdoria were beaten in their last Serie A fixture by AC Milan. Sampdoria attempted to hit Milan on the counter-attack in that game, and they will likely look to do the same against Napoli this weekend. They did manage to get on the scoresheet late in the game through Albin Ekdal, but they still lost 2-1.
Napoli vs Sampdoria Head To Head
Sampdoria have recorded just one win in 17 meetings against Napoli, and haven’t won away from home in Naples in nearly 20 years. Napoli have won the last three meetings. The last of those was a 4-2 success in February.
Napoli vs Sampdoria Prediction
Napoli have been excellent in Serie A this season, and Sampdoria’s poor record in Naples only indicates that a home win is more likely. The hosts will claim maximum point against their opponents this weekend.
