Napoli will be hoping to keep close to Serie A’s top two when they host Sampdoria on Sunday at 3:30pm (UK time).

Luciano Spalletti’s men lost some ground on second-placed AC Milan in midweek after being held to a 1-1 draw by Juventus, now sitting five points behind the Rossoneri. It continued what has been a poor period for Napoli either side of their winter break, with just one win from their past six matches, including three defeats. Sampdoria have also won just one of their past six league matches and returned to action with a 2-1 defeat to relegation-battling Cagliari. As a result, they now sit just seven points clear of Cagliari in 18th, so will be hoping to arrest their slump and add some comfort to their campaign.

Napoli team news

Napoli remain without a number of players but have had no change from their match against Juventus in midweek. Kalidou Koulibaly, Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa and Adam Ounas are all on Africa Cup of Nations duty, while Fabian Ruiz, Alex Meret, Hirving Lozano, Victor Osimhen, Mario Rui, Kevin Macuit and Eljif Elmas are all in isolation. New arrival Axel Tuanzebe could go straight into the squad this weekend, while Lorenzo Insigne should still be included despite agreeing to move to MLS side Toronto in the summer.

Napoli predicted XI: Ospina; Di Lorenzo, Rrahmani, Jesus, Ghoulam; Lobotka, Demme; Politano, Zielinski, Insigne; Mertens.

Sampdoria team news

Sampdoria are also without a player due to the Africa Cup of Nations, with Omar Colley representing Gambia. Antonio Candreva is suspended for the visitors after his red card in the defeat to Cagliari and joins the likes of Maya Yoshida, Mikkel Damsgaard and Tommaso Augello in having to watch from the sidelines. Kristoffer Askildsen is back from suspension and will likely come in for Candreva.

Sampdoria predicted XI: Audero; Ferrari, Dragusin, Murru; Bereszynski, Ekdal, Thorsby, Askildsen; Gabbiadini, Caputo.
