Sampdoria vs Napoli: Visitors to prevail in goal fest

Sampdoria vs Napoli: Visitors to prevail in goal fest

Kick Off: 1700, 28/05/2017

Stadium: Luigi Ferraris

Napoli go into the final round of Serie A fixtures with an outside chance of claiming second place and that should inspire them to see off a Sampdoria side with little to play for.

The visitors have gone 11 head-to-head meetings without tasting defeat, winning eight of those games, and are hot favourites to further extend that impressive record.

Looking at the Sampdoria vs Napoli odds, we like Evens for an away victory and both teams to score.

A Look At Sampdoria’s Betting Odds

Sampdoria are safely tucked away in mid-table but they have had a disappointing end to the campaign, going seven games without a win.

On the plus side, they have only failed to score once in their last 16 Serie A fixtures, and that was when going down 1-0 away to champions Juventus.

Despite a moderate record versus Napoli, La Samp have netted twice in five of their last six encounters with this weekend’s opponents, so the stats gurus will be going for goals here.

We’re having a saver on 5/2 for the hosts to score more than one goal in our Sampdoria vs Napoli betting tips.

A Look At Napoli’s Betting Odds

Napoli haven’t lost since going down 3-1 to Real Madrid in the second leg of their Champions League tie, winning nine of 11 subsequent matches.

Belgium international Dries Mertens has stepped up his bid for Serie A Golden Boot glory, scoring five times in three games as his team put a total of 12 goals past Cagliari, Torino and Fiorentina.

The 30-year-old, who has been linked with a move to the Premier League, is just one behind Roma’s Edin Dzeko going into the final day of the campaign.

The visitors lead the way in goals scored this term with 90, including a superb 46 away from home, so let’s be bold and take 21/4 they prevail 3-2, 4-2, 4-3 or 5-1 in our Sampdoria vs Napoli predictions.
