Sampdoria plays cautiously
With a new coach from the summer and after meetings with 3 teams from the Top 5 last season, it is difficult to draw any conclusions about Samp.
Purely statistically at the moment they have 5 points earned out of 12 possible.
However, the combination of the 4th team in Serie A, which created the fewest goal positions, is very interesting for them.
At the same time, the 4th team allowed the least of them in front of its own goal.
Such a constellation usually leads to a large number of equations.
Sampdoria beat both Inter and Milan in terms of xG data .
They have conceded only 3 goals in their 4 matches so far. One of which was after a direct free kick.
And this achievement has been achieved against strong rivals.
Napoli with a perfect start in Serie A.
The team of Napoli shows very good results. And is the only team with a full asset of points in Calcio.
But it is true that they have not met any serious rivals so far.
Even Juventus was in a serious personnel and probably game crisis when they faced each other at Diego Maradona Stadium.
Most football professionals forget these details. And they are quick to point out that Napoli were in good shape.
In my opinion, however, this is not at all certain.
And even the argument that so far few Italian teams could oppose English, and they did, is also not convincing.
True, Napoli played a very strong match in LE. But don't forget that Leicester was in crisis at the time.
Forecast for Sampdoria - Napoli
In the end, we have before us a match in which…
Sampdoria, on the one hand, are in good spirits after a win and are looking for their first success at home in Serie A this season.
Napoli, on the other hand, is in a very good series.
What to choose for a football prediction?
Equal, of course.
Sampdoria will play against Juventus on Sunday. And no one will be dissatisfied with just a point in this meeting.
Napoli had a match on Monday. And during the week they generally play for the Euro tournament. You need to save energy.
My bet for this choice is a little above average. Because the risk / return ratio is just perfect.
