A top of the table clash in Serie A will see second placed Napoli travel to take on fourth placed Fiorentina. Napoli will look to close the gap on Juventus who's win on Sunday night left them four points clear of Napoli . Napoli were desperately unlucky to lose to Juve just a couple of weeks ago and now are playing the catch up game, they probably couldnt have a tougher game with Fiorentina one of the best teams in the league and one of the toughest teams to beat, especially at the Stadio Artemio Franchi. Napoli have one of the top scorers across Europe in Higuain, who is having a career year and attracting attention from team across the continent. With Higuain, Mertens, Hamsik and Insigne there is alot of quality throughout the Napoli side and they will look to press the issue here against Fiorentina. Can Napoli get a win away from home against another top five team though is the question.
While Napoli are fighting for the title, Fiorentina are really in a battle for a Champions League spot. Roma league frogged Fiorentina on Saturday as they had a good away win against Empoli. Roma are hitting form and this is going to mean a tough battle for both Fiorentina, Inter Milan and Milan. Fiorentina are going to take the game to Napoli as well looking for all three points. Fiorentina have Kalinic and Ilicic both scoring freely and with Valero, Tello and Bababcar all providing support this is a team that has some great attacking potential and wont be afraid of going at Napoli. Fiorentina had a terrific come from behind win over Inter Milan at home two weeks ago and that has to have given the team confidence in their ability to beat the top teams in Serie A.
This one should be a great game but both teams need a win and this could lead to a tense game and tactically could be an interesting game. I am really looking forward to this game and I think it should be an absolute cracker. I am going to take both teams to score here in what should be a really entertaining game.
