Napoli welcomes Sampdoria in a match from the 22th round
Napoli welcomes Sampdoria in a match from the 22th round of the Italian Serie A. Let’s take a look at this clash at the Stadio San Paolo in our predictions 1X2 for today.
At this moment Napoli are 2nd in the Serie A standings, being only behind the dominant leader Juventus. The Azzurri have 48 points and a record of 15 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses. In their last five games Carlo Ancelotti’s boys won three times, made one draw and suffered one defeat.
In their last game Napoli shared the points with Milan at the Stadio San Siro for a 0-0 draw. Napoli even finished the game with 10 men on the pitch because of Fabian Ruiz’ red card in the last minutes. The Spanish midfielder will miss the game against Sampdoria because of suspension.
Before the draw against Milan, Napoli enjoyed two consecutive wins in the league against Lazio and Bologna. Clearly Napoli don’t have much of a chance to beat Juventus for the title, but if they manage to keep the 2nd place it’d be a solid season for them.
As for Sampdoria, the team from Genova is currently 6th in the league with 33 points, fighting hard for an European qualification for next season. So far Samp have a record of 9 wins, 6 draws and 6 losses. In their last five matches Sampdoria won three times, made one draw and suffered one defeat.
In their previous fixture Sampdoria enjoyed a solid 4-0 win against Udinese at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris. Fabio Quagliarella scored a brace for Sampdoria, while Karol Linetty and Manolo Gabbiadini also scored for the home side.
These are our predictions 1X2 for the Serie A clash between Napoli and Sampdoria on Saturday. Be believe that the home side is a favourite here, but don’t underrestimate Sampdoria.
