SAM Vs NAP Dream11 Prediction : Tottering Napoli look to revive their season as they scour for their second straight win in domestic competition.
This is turning out to be a Serie A season where nothing is going according to script. It’s been a riveting season, one filled with twists and turns with unprecedented results springing up every season to revel us in an intriguing brand of football.
The narrative was paid testament to perfectly the last time around when Napoli and Juventus squared off against each other. A tie which was widely touted to swing in the league leaders favour saw Napoli pull off a stunning result with the 2-1 win seeing them being massively hailed for ther tenacity and reslliance.
It was a much needed result for a Napoli side on a downward spiral in the league, a showing which could end up being a defining moment to their campaign this season. Wrenching out of their ordeal of three defeats in succession, the side will be looking to emulate the same performance when they take on a waning Sampdoria side which finds itself slumped in 16th place.
Sampdoria might find themselves in the trenches of the points tally, but that rhetoric won’t deter them when they come across Napoli today. They managed to pull off a draw against Sassuolo the last time around, one which will buoy them when they come across a Napoli side which is yet to stabilise its season.
We envision this tie being a draw with either side prioritising not succumbing to a defeat in this one.

Dream 11 Picks
At the forefront of his side’s draw the last time around, Emil Audero from Sampdoria is going to be our shot stopper for this upcoming tie. The player showed resolve and fortitude infront of a slew of shots, one which sees us repose faith in him for the contest.
With both the sides having leaky defences, the likelihood of a clean-sheet for either side is extremely unlikely. It’s a narrative which sees us limit our Dream 11 side to the bare minimum of three selections for the encounter, all of them being attacking inclined players who are more than willing of galloping down into the side’s attacking sorties.
