Sampdoria – History suggests long 90 minutes in store?

Since opening their 2021-22 Serie A campaign with a 1-0 defeat at home to last season’s runners-up, AC Milan, Sampdoria have gone unbeaten, giving them an overall record so far of W1 D2 L1. They didn’t pick up their first win, though, until last Sunday. Summer signing Francesco Caputo grabbed a brace, in what were his first goals since signing from Sassuolo, in an easy 3-0 win away at recently promoted Empoli.

Roberto D’Aversa’s men haven’t had the easiest of starts in front of their own fans having already faced both Milan clubs, narrowly losing to AC (0-1) but twice coming from behind to earn a 2-2 draw with reigning champions Inter. Next up at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris are early pacesetters Napoli, who La Samp haven’t taken a single point from across the last five Serie A meetings, losing 11 of the last 12.

Key Stat: Sampdoria has scored two or more in five of the last six Serie A matches held at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris, losing only to AC Milan in this sequence (W4 D1).


Napoli Win & Over 2.5 Goals



Napoli – No stopping perfect Partenopei?

How can we not be impressed with Napoli? They are the only team in Serie A with a perfect record through the first four rounds. Under Luciano Spalletti the Partenopei have emphatically hit the ground running, notching at least twice in every league fixture so far this season, including in their thrilling come-from-behind victory against Juventus, scoring ten times in all whilst only giving up two up the other end.

After Monday night’s 4-0 demolition of Udinese, Napoli have now won each of their last six Serie A away matches by an aggregate of 16-2. A run that started back on 11 April with a 2-0 scoreline against Sampdoria, who they’ve beaten the last five times by a combined score of 13-3. It goes almost without saying then that the visitors will take some stopping in Genoa on Thursday, even if their turnaround is shorter.

Key Stat: Should Napoli score on Thursday, they will have done so in 31 consecutive Serie A matches. They’ve netted 2+ in each of the last six away from home.

Sampdoria Vs Napoli Betting Advice

On current form, having won all four league games so far this season, Napoli look tremendous value at a shade of odds-on. This is before even taking into account their outstanding record against Sampdoria, winning each of the last five such encounters as well as 11 of the past 12. This includes five of the past six as the visiting side, each time by a margin of exactly two goals.


Sampdoria Vs Napoli – Key Facts:

  • Should Napoli take home all three points on Thursday, it will represent their sixth consecutive Serie A win against Sampdoria and their third in a row away from home.
  • In fact, Napoli have only failed to pick up maximum points in one of their previous twelve league matches with Sampdoria – who did win 3-0 at home in September 2018.
  • Napoli are yet to drop a point this season and are chasing their seventh straight away league win. Sampdoria have one win so far (D2 L1) but boast a solid recent record as hosts (W4 D1 L1).


This fixture has also tended to throw up a fair few goals. The last sixteen between the sides have seen at least two goals, while ten of the last thirteen produced Over 2.5 Goals. With Sampdoria scoring 2+ in all but one of the last six at home and Napoli doing the same in their last six road matches in Italy, this has the makings of a very entertaining affair and one I suspect the visitors will continue their dominance in.
