Football predictions – Sampdoria U19 vs Napoli U19 – Italy 13.01.18

Napoli U19 have taken just one point from their last three Italy. Campionato Nazionale Primavera matches, following last weekend’s 3-1 defeat away to their opponent. Napoli U19 are still seventh overall in the table, but the distance between them and the Continental qualification positions is slowly getting bigger. Saturday’s match at home to reigning champions Sampdoria U19 should prove no easy feat either – Napoli U19 haven’t won against any Italy. Campionato Nazionale Primavera leader since September 2008 and, notably, are without a win against any side currently within the top eight so far this season.

Sampdoria U19 have turned around their “unconvincing” run in style over the past 7 days. Sampdoria U19 dominated and humiliated their opponent with a 8-0 win at home last weekend, which also saw their striker net his first hat-trick of 2017, to become the Italy. Campionato Nazionale Primavera’s joint top scorer (19 goals) in the process, before easing their way through to the semi-finals of the national cup at home to opponent during the week (3-0 win).

Sampdoria U19 are clear favourites here at 4/9 with bet365, but we feel that backing “both teams to score” at 21/20 has some decent potential for the following reasons:

Most people know about Sampdoria U19 and their striker, and for good reason too. He is a world class striker and currently in top form, with seven goals from his last four competitive outings. He’s also scored three goals in Sampdoria U19’s last four on the road so you’d fancy him to continue this run as an anytime goalscorer at 4/7 with bet365. However, Napoli U19 are not without a weapon of their own in French striker.Not to mention that he scored against the visitors earlier this season when Napoli U19 took a point away from Sampdoria U19 (1-1 draw).

Notably, Sampdoria U19’s recent domination has in fact come from matches at home. Sampdoria U19 have failed to keep a clean sheet in three of their last four Italy. Campionato Nazionale Primavera away matches, including against some much weaker teams than Napoli U19, and the added strain following their mid-week national cup match, where the league leaders fielded a full strength squad, should add even more value to Napoli U19 getting one against them.

Regarding a correct score bet, though Napoli U19 are unbeaten at home this season (W5 D5), Sampdoria U19 hold the best away record in the Italy. Campionato Nazionale Primavera (W8 D2 L1). Napoli U19’s poor track record against much stronger sides, combined with Sampdoria U19’s return to goal-scoring form, means we feel the Sampdoria U19ns could sneak another win here. As such, we feel there’s decent value to be had backing a 2-1 Sampdoria U19 win at 15/2 with bet365.
