Napoli tied 0-0 with Sampdoria and missed a huge opportunity to significantly shorten the gap with leader and defending Serie A champion, Juventus after their fall in Roma 1-0. 

The home team lead a one sided attack but failed to define and open the score. Sampdoria created an organized and unbreakable back wall defense that prevented the locals from having clear shots. 

In a couple of occasions Sampdoria found chances to move forward in attack, but De Sanctis prevented the fall of his goal. Sergio Romero, the Argentine goalkeeper for Sampdoria also had a brilliant performance. 

Napoli is still four points away from Juventus as it nears the date when the two meet to fight for the top.
