    Sampdoria have made a woeful start to the new Serie A campaign, failing to pick up any points in their first two outings in the Italian top-flight. On Saturday evening, they face a difficult trip to perennial Serie A runners up, Napoli.

    Sampdoria have kicked off the new league campaign by suffering a 3-0 home defeat by Lazio before losing 4-1 at Sassuolo last time out in the Italian top-flight.

    The visitor’s poor results during the current campaign is just a continuation of last season’s late poor form, as they have now won just one of their last eight games in Serie A, suffering five defeats in the process.

    Sampdoria’s main problem in recent Serie A games has been keeping the opposition out, as they conceded at least twice in six of their last eight outings in the Italian top-flight.

    The visitors have been travel-sick of late too, failing to win in five matches away from home in the Italian top-flight.

    Napoli have enjoyed a mixed start to their Serie A campaign, winning one of their first two league games in the Italian top-flight. The team from Naples kicked off the new campaign with a 4-3 win at Fiorentina before last time out suffering a 4-3 defeat at champions Juventus.

    Carlo Ancelotti’s side has lost two of their last three league matches but won five of their last seven outings in the top-flight. Gli Azzurri’s recent Serie A games have certainly been entertaining, as their last six league games have produced over 2.5 goals.

    Napoli’s usual formidable home record in Serie A has become inconsistent of late, as they have won just three of their last seven matches at the San Paolo.

    Forebet predicts that Napoli will record a victory in a high-scoring clash to add to the visitor’s woes in Serie A.
