Sampdoria vs Napoli Match Preview
Walter Mazzari faces his former club as coach of Napoli. Napoli need a win after drawing all three of their games in Italy and Europe. For Sampdoria, it has been a case of what could have been. They were moments away from claiming a place in the Champions League before infuriatingly conceding late goals to Werder Bremen. Similarly, they were winning against PSV in the Europa League only to throw away the lead in the last few minutes.
They have, however, claimed points off Juventus in a thrilling 3-3 draw. Further, with Antonio Cassano in the form of his life they should be able to negotiate their way past Napoli. Cassano and Giampaolo Pazzini start in attack, while Napoli will have Edison Cavani up front.
