The match has just started, and after a 2-1 win over Juventus, Napoli will be looking to give fans another reason for celebration when they face Sampdoria tonight.
Napoli produced one of their most impressive matches of the season at the weekend, with putting an end to their three consecutive lost matches in the Serie A. Gattuso’s team aim to continue climbing up in the standings.
On the other hand, Sampdoria will be without Bereszynski against the guests. Noteworthy, that the hosts are missing Ferrari because of his injury. Neapolitans’ key center-back Koulibaly could recover before they face Sampdoria.
Sampdoria have earned eight of available 20 SA points of the season in their last six fixtures. However, the threat of relegation is still significant. Sampdoria have struggled with their beginnings, remaining the only Serie A side that could not manage to net a goal in the first 30 minutes, while scoring just 25% of overall league goals (20) before the
80% (4) of Napoli’s five Serie A victories have subsequently come through a single-goal margin, with three of them ending 1-0.
It’s a bit early to predict about Napoli’s revival yet, but a 2-1 victory against the Old Lady halted three consecutive lost matches in SA. Six of their 15 Serie A games witnessed 2-1 victories. A single-goal margin finished ten of those mentioned 15 games.
Four of Napoli’s last seven Serie A away matches have finished with draws, three of them finishing 1-1. Scoring first is a significant advantage, though. In doing so, Napoli remained unbeaten in 16 of Napoli’s 19 Serie A clashes, excluding goalless draws (12 wins, four draws, and three losses).
