Napoli vs Sampdoria Match Preview
Napoli host Samporia for their Matchday 22 clash on Saturday afternoon looking to bounce back after two underwhelming displays against Milan, as Rossoneri ended their three-match winning streak in a goalless Serie A draw and knocked them out of Coppa Italia (2-0) on Tuesday.
Partenopei have thus seen their woes on the road continue but they have been far more convincing in front of the crowd at San Paolo and Carlo Ancelotti will hope they can capitalize on it, desperate for points to reignite their chase for pace-setters Juventus – who now sit 11 points in the clear.
Sampdoria will have plans of their own and they’ve been very convincing in their return to the winning ways against Udinese, where Quagliarella opened with a brace and Linetty and Gabbiadini added one each in the second half. They’ve ended a three-match winless streak and will want more at this point.
Blucerchiati have thus extended their high-scoring streak and this will be reinforcing too, promising a strong challenge as Marco Giampaolo’s men look to build on the top 6 spot where they jumped both Lazio and Atalanta last week. With top 4 under their noses, Sampdoria have just as much to play for here.
Nonetheless, we will still back Napoli to overcome the strong challenge and we’ll back them to win with a Yes on Both teams to score, which combines to an enticing 9/5 with Ladbrokes as Napoli struggle to keep clean sheets on the regular.
With that in mind, going for a high-scoring contest feels like buying money for old rope and we’ll go for Over 2.5 Goals FT at 5/9 with Grosvenor. We’ve seen three or more goals in four of Napoli’s last six home outings as well as all of Sampdoria’s last four trips – which feels like further evidence for such a bet.
