Action from Serie A on Wedensday night will see a red hot Napoli take on a Palermo team who have struggled at times but held Inter Milan at the weekend. Napoli have an abundance of superstars here and after a poor start to the season the Naples side have been scintillating of late six wins in a row and eight in their last nine have left Napoli just two points off leaders Roma and looking like a team ready to compete for the Scudetto this year. Higuain, Hamsik and Insigne are all off to flyers in the league and have led Napoli to where they are right now. Mertens, Callejon and Gabbiadini have been slower starters in terms of goals but their contribution has been just as great. This is a talented side with so much attakcing firepower that it's tough to see how teams will hold them.
Palermo though have proven over the last couple of games that they themselves are a tough nut to crack although one of those was against a struggling Bologna team. Inter Milan got it hard to play against them at the weekend but that was at home in Palermo. The team have struggled on the road this season losing three of the five games away and conceding two or more in those three losses. I think that Palermo are faced with a tough battle here against a very good Napoli side and I think that it's tough to see this one staying under the 2.5 goals mark.
I am taking over 3.5 goals here I think Napoli are a free scoring side at the moment and Palermo may have to come out and attack if Napoli get off to another fast start at 6/4 we are getting some value here as well.
