Monday night football from Genova as Sampdoria play host to Napoli, can Napoli extend their unbeaten streak to eight games. Napoli have started to hit their stride in recent weeks after a poor start to the season. With a front three of Hamsik, Higuain and Callejon there is some serious talent upfront for Napoli. With Rafa Benitez looking for his team to continue their chase of Roma and Juventus he knows they simply must win tough away games like this one. With Callejon and Higuain forming a solid partnership up front Napoli will beat alot of teams this season, although with Sampdoria so solid at the back , especially at home it could be Napoli's defence that are the key here.
Under Mihajlovi? this Sampdoria team have become defensively sound and are very tough to break down. At home Sampdoria are unbeaten since May of last year and actually their last loss at home was to tomorrow's opponents Napoli. Scoring goals has not come easily for Sampdoria though with only fifteen goals scored this season the team are among the lowest scorers in the league. Gabbiadini has led the scoring with six goals but really the team must come together with more goals if they are to continue to compete at the top end of Serie A. Defensively they have only conceded nine goals this season , four in six games at home.
Tough game to call here, while Napoli have started to find their rythm up front they have still struggled to break down good defences and they face one of the best in the league on Monday night. I am going to take the draw here as I cant see Napoli beating Sampdoria here but I cant see sampdoria scoring enough to win.
