The Saturday night game in Serie A comes from Palermo as they host an inform Napoli who have won their last six in all competitions and who have closed the gap on Roma to just four points. At the moment Napoli look like the only team capable of challenging Juventus for the title as Roma continue to drop points against poor sides. Napoli manager Rafa Benitez asked for more from his side since the winter break and they have responded positively with Callejon and Higuain brilliant of late. The addition of Gabbiadini seems to have worked as Napoli appear to have needed the freshening up. Hamsik, Mertens, Callejon and Higuain with this much firepower it is not really surprising to see Napoli climb the table it is just a pity they had such a poor start to the season.
Palermo managed to hold onto their best player in Dybala through the January transfer window. Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea are thought to be interested in the South American who has managed to net ten goals this term for a Palermo team that have mostly struggled to defend this season .While Vasquez and Dybala have been impressive this season with a defence that has leaked 1.5 goals a game it's obvious that Palermo have struggled because of it.
Taking the overs here with two potent offences and Palermo's leaky defence I think this one has to go over. I also like Napoli to win as I think they will look to continue their pursuit of Juventus and Roma.
