Napoli travel to Cesena looking to maintain their pursuit of third and Champions League football. Rafa Benitez will be looking for his side to get a win here and keep the pressure on Lazio and the rest of the chasing pack for third. With Napoli winning the Super Cup against Juventus a couple of weeks back in Dubai they will be looking to push on here and get a win against a Cesena team that are really struggling in the league this year. With a top class strikeforce of Hamsik, Higuain, Mertens and Callejon Napoli will look to get a couple of early goals against a Cesena team that are second from bottom in the league and are in danger of becoming isolated from the rest of the league if they continue to lose games. Cesena have only picked up nine points this term and that type of form will lead to relegation if it continues.
Cesena face a really tough task here as Napoli look liek a formidable outfit and coming into form at the right time of the year. Cesena will look to Portugal striker Almeida, Defrel and Ze Eduardo to try to turn their season around. Its going to be a big ask for the newly promoted side but they must start now. I think that personally Napoli are going to be too good here but Cesena may give them a game.
Not one of my favourites here but I am taking the overs. I think Napoli will be keen to keep up with Lazio after their impressive 3-0 win last night and I think that Rafa Benitez knows the importance of gettting these type of tricky away wins. Look for Higuain, Hamsik and Callejon to exploit the weak back four of Cesena here.
