Napoli have bounced back from a couple of recent defeats and will be looking for a third straight victory as they come up against a Sampdoria team without a win in five.

Napoli Preview – Will Napoli keep pace with leaders with a third consecutive win in the league?

It’s been an emotional period for Napoli following the passing of Diego Maradona. It may just be a coincidence but it has appeared to galvanise the team on the park following a heavy 3-1 home defeat to leaders Milan. Rino Gattuso’s men have bounced back with successive 4-0 wins in the league and consolidated their position in the top four for the time being. Whilst Champions League qualification is their main objective, the nature of this year’s title race will mean they think they’re in with a chance.

In order to make that more achievable then they have to be winning this one ahead of their trip to the San Siro to face Inter next week.

(odds taken 2000 GMT, Saturday 12 December)
Napoli sit six points behind Milan and will hope to make up some ground on their rivals who play later on Sunday. Their home form is a mixed bag this season, however, with three wins and two defeats. Without doubt their most impressive result was the 4-0 win against Roma and it’s that level of performance they need more regularly.
Inter are the only team to have scored more than them in Serie A this season and there are no shortage of attacking options for Gattuso to choose from.

Sampdoria Preview – Can Samp halt their slide down the table by getting a positive result in this encounter?

After what was a really positive start to this season, Sampdoria are just beginning to descend down the table. Claudio Ranieri’s men are still comfortably in mid-table coming into this weekend sitting in 12th spot on 11 points. That’s five points ahead of the bottom three but unless they begin to pick up points on a more regular basis then that cushion will soon vanish.

Sampdoria approach this game having taken only two points from their last five league games and also exited the Coppa Italia to arch rivals Genoa. So it’s been a testing time for the veteran coach.

Before this winless run Sampdoria had won three straight in the league including wins over Lazio and Atalanta, so they’re more than capable of being competitive against the best teams Serie A has to offer. And they’ve lost only one of their last four on the road so it would be foolish to write them off coming into this match.

The evergreen Fabio Quagliarella is once again leading the charge for Sampdoria this season. A man who had a season at Napoli is on five goals for the campaign, four of them coming in consecutive games earlier in the season.

Napoli vs Sampdoria Betting Advice

This promises to be a really exciting game for the fact that Napoli are looking for points to close on the leaders and come up against an opponent who whilst on a poor run, have shown their abilities in taking the scalps of teams who also have live top four hopes.

Napoli will be confident of the three points however having won the last three and eight of the last nine against Sampdoria. They’ve also scored 24 goals in the process.

Key Facts – Napoli  vs Sampdoria Betting Tip

  • Napoli have responded to the heavy home defeat to Milan with consecutive 4-0 wins against Roma and Crotone
  • Having won three in a row, Sampdoria have taken only two points from their last five games
