Napoli vs Fiorentina Prediction & Betting tips
Napoli – Fiorentina, the table second expects the -siebten, where both are already 17 points apart. SSC Napoli lost for the first time last weekend and lost first place, but they are still in the sights. Meanwhile, Fiorentina have been knocked out of the Champions League and, with five points behind sixth-placed, they must be careful not to lose contact.
After 146 duels, the balance between the two clubs with 53 wins and 40 draws is balanced. In Naples, the statistics speaks for 35 home wins, 21 draws and 17 successes of Fiorentina, however, clearly for the host.
The past few months of SSC Naples, which have been very positive overall, received two heavy scratches in the past week. First came the team of coach Mauricio Sarri after first twelve wins and two draws on the 15th Serie A match against Juventus (1-0) a first defeat in the league and then it was on Wednesday at Feyenoord Rotterdam (1: 2) in the Champions League the fourth defeat in the sixth game, although of course a victory ultimately nothing more descent into the Europa League would have changed. In general, Napoli currently lacks a little the ease of the first weeks of the season. Before the two bankruptcies against Juve and in Rotterdam were the appearances at Chievo Verona (0: 0), against the AC Milan (2: 1) and at Udinese Calcio (1: 0) rather sober, although from the results nevertheless good.
With Faouzi Ghoulam and Arkadiusz Milik two important players fall out long term. Whether Lorenzo Insigne, who suffered a groin injury against Juventus, will probably decide on the day of the match.
Probable lineup: Reina – Maggio, Raul Albiol, Koulibaly, Hysaj – Jorginho – Allan, Hamsik – José Callejon, Mertens, Insigne
After a major change in the summer, Fiorentina made a false start with two defeats at Inter Milan (0-3) and Sampdoria Genoa (1-2), but then at Hellas Verona (5-0) and against FC Bologna (2: 1) was won twice. However, Konstanz did not qualify but Juventus (0: 1), Atalanta Bergamo (1: 1) and Chievo Verona (1: 2) scored only one of nine points. In the meantime, Fiorentina drew three Serie A victories against Udinese Calcio (2: 1), Benevento Calcio (3: 0) and Torino (3: 0), and then FC Crotone (1: 2) Roma (2: 4), SPAL Ferrara (1: 1) and Lazio (1: 1) to score only two points from four matches. Last weekend, with a 3-0 win against Sassuolo Calcio but again on the road to success.
Apart from Petko Hristov, all players are expected to be on board. Big change after the clear victory against Sassuolo should not exist.
Probable lineup: Sportiello – Laurini, Pezzella, Astori, Biraghi – Benassi, Badelj, Veretout – Chiesa, Thereau, Simeone
