League leaders Napoli face mid table Sampdoria this weekend in a match that I would have tipped as being a lot closer just a few weeks ago.
Napoli have maintained their good form with a loss to Juventus (which is nothing to be ashamed of!) as the only blot on their copybook in recent times. Sampdoria, on the other hand, have let their great start to the season slip, losing 4 of their past 6 in all competitions, including an ugly defeat at home to relegation contenders Sassuolo.
The main problem for Sampdoria isn’t necessarily in front of goal, where they are still scoring, but at the back where they have been conceding far too many recently. An average of 2 conceded per game out of their past 7 just isn't good enough for a team pushing for Europe...and this is where they are going to be punished by Napoli.
2nd only to Juventus in terms of goals scored, Napoli are prolific in the final third of the field, whilst at home their defence is miserly, only conceding 4 all season! If I had to pick a score for this it would be 3-1, but I am confident enough about Napoli's general dominance to pick them to win by at least 2 clear goals.
I am choosing Sbobet as my place for this bet, simply because they have the best odds available and will never limit you!
