One of the games of the weekend in Serie A will see the top two in the league go head to head in Naples as Napoli host league leading Fiorentina. Without doubt the surprise pacage of the Serie A season thus far has been the performances of La Viola (Fiorentina) , the away side have been simply brilliant all season long, defensively very impressive with five clean sheets in seven games and offensively the team has been rolling scoring eleven in their last three games.With Rossi , Kalinic and Bababcar up front this is a team with extreme talent up front and they are playing full of confidence. Paulo Sousa will know that his side's early season excellence does not win a league and that the team will need to contiue to play the same high standard of ball and pick up points in tough fixtures like this one.
Napoli had a terrible start to the season losing their first game of the season and dropping points in their next two but since then Napoli have won five and drawn one of their last six. Napoli have such a depth of quality in their side that it's unsurprising that once they hit form they look so good. Higuain, Callejon, Mertens , Insigne and Hamsik are all quality attacking/creative players and the summer additions of midfileder Allan and Pepe Reine has given a strength in depth that Napoli have been missing over the last few years. Napoli are definitely one of the teams in Serie A that will be looking to take advantage of the poor season Juventus are having.
I cant see this one staying as a low scoring game and with both attacks being in terrific form I am taking the overs here. Quite often these games between the top teams end up with both teams canceling each other out but I dont think that happens here as I see Fiorentina coming to Napoli and looking for a win. These are two very good teams and this should be a relaly good one to watch. Take the overs.
