Napoli have absolutely been the best team in the Italian top flight this season – and this statement stands in spite of their narrow loss against former champions Inter. They are still at the top of the table, and that too with a lead of five points.

Sampdoria are one of the worst in the Serie A, and are a contender to get relegated at the end of the campaign. They have won just twice all through the current league season, and both wins came against fellow relegation-battlers.
