Napoli vs Fiorentina 24 Jan 2017: Coppa Italia Preview and Predictions

There are some great matches in the Coppa Italia this week as Italian football’s number one cup competition reaches one of the latter stages of competition. One of the key match ups will be for Napoli as they play host to Fiorentina.

Napoli are coming off a big win on the weekend as the team from Naples managed to beat AC Milan at the San Siro. This will give the side a ton of confidence going forward and although the weekend win would have been draining, I think the confidence that they got from the victory will really give them an edge. This match they will be at home and I think I like their chances of going through to the next stage of the competition.

Fiorentina on the other hand will feel as if they can also put up a good fight and although this season has not gone exactly as planned, they are getting a few results together and that will give them some confidence. That being said, this team will be away from home and although this is only a cup tie, Naples is not an easy place to visit and the home crowd will make things very tough.

With that being said, I still think we should be in for a great match between two of the best teams in Italian football at the moment. As far as betting is concerned, I think our best bet is to put money on Napoli to win outright. They are by far the better side and with the home crowd behind them, I don’t see them leaving this game with anything but a win. Other than that, a bet on the under 2.5 goals is also a good option and I think that bet also has a ton of value to it.
