Napoli vs Sampdoria predictions and betting tips for this Saturday’s Serie A fixture on February 2nd with an anytime goalscorer tip and goals prediction included.
Another cracker of a fixture in Serie A takes place on Saturday night as Napoli host Sampdoria at Stadio San Paolo. The hosts will be desperate to bounce back from their Coppa Italia disappointment in midweek. Carlo Ancelotti’s side have been excellent so far this season and although they look unlikely to challenge for the Scudetto this season, they hold an eight point advantage over third-placed Inter and will be expecting to pick up three points against Sampdoria. The visitors haven’t enjoyed their recent trips to Naples but have played their part in some entertaining encounters and another cracker is expected here. See our Napoli vs Sampdoria predictions below.
Sampdoria have had a mixed season but they do occupy the final European spot and they will be keen to stave off the advances of in-form Atalanta with three points here. Sadly for Samp, they don’t have a good record at this ground and they’ve lost eight of the last nine games against Napoli in Serie A. The hosts have faced AC Milan twice inside a week, drawing 0-0 at the weekend before being dumped out of the Coppa Italia in midweek. They are yet to be defeated here in the league however and they should be able to maintain that record on Saturday night. They’ve won four home games in a row coming into this game and the likes of Sassuolo, Fiorentina and Lazio have all been unable to come away with anything in recent months. The visitors will be confident after firing four past Udinese last weekend and they usually do find the net here. They haven’t failed to find the net on their travels since October 26th and they’ve already notched at the Juventus Stadium and at Stadio Olimpico this season. The hosts should prevail but they won’t have it all their own way. Napoli to Win and Both Teams to Score is the first of our Serie A betting tips for Saturday evening.
As we’ve already established, there should be plenty of goals in this game and the odds are very cramped on Over 2.5 Goals. If we chuck in BTTS as well, there’s value to be found. It would have landed in six of Sampdoria’s last seven away games and in each of Napoli’s last two matches here at Stadio San Paolo. It’s also paid out in the last two meetings between these teams at this ground. Over 2.5 Goals and Both Teams to Score? Yes is the second of our Napoli vs Sampdoria betting tips and it looks great value at 11/10.
It isn’t the most original selection but Arkadiusz Milik has been in tremendous form recently and he looks the likliest Napoli player to find the back of the net here. He’s got a great recent record and he also regularly nets in Naples. It’s good to see the Polish striker has put his injury troubles behind him and he’s enjoying life under Carlo Ancelotti. The 24-year old has netted six times in Napoli’s last four home games and he should be able to add to his tally against a Sampdoria defence which has been leaky on the road. He is the third of our Napoli vs Sampdoria predictions for Saturday night.
Napoli’s supreme home record understandably makes them favourites here and they are odds-on at 4/11 to collect three points and bounce back from their midweek disappointment. It’s 4/1 for the game to end all-square and Sampdoria are 15/2 to spring a surprise and take the spoils in this tie.
The bookies are expecting plenty of goals in this game and it’s 8/15 for Over 2.5 Goals to land in this one. Over 3.5 Goals regularly lands in Sampdoria matches and is priced at 11/8 in this one.
Dries Mertens lead the way in the first goalscorer market and is available at 3/1 to break the deadlock in this tie. He is followed by Arkadiusz Milik, who is available at 15/4. Jose Callejon netted the opener in Napoli’s last home match and he is 15/4 to repeat the trick here.
