Napoli is hosting Fiorentina at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona in round 32 of the Italian Serie A. Napoli is now on a nice winning streak, and they are close to the top of the table once again. Fiorentina has been doing well without Vlahovic, but I don’t think they can reach the Europa League.
Napoli now has 3 wins in a row, they have scored 7 goals during that streak, but they have also conceded a goal in each of those games. With 66 points, Napoli is now in 3rd place, which is the Champions League spot, but they are aiming for the title. With only 23 conceded goals, Napoli is the best defensive team in the league, while also being among the best offensive teams with 56 scored goals. Of all the top teams in Serie A, I think Napoli has the easiest schedule, and that could be crucial in the title run. Osimhen is the leading goalscorer for Napoli with 11 goals, but he is on the injury list. There are a few more players who are injured for Napoli. The good news for Napoli is that neither Inter nor Milan has been too good lately, and that might be their chance to win the Serie A title.
Fiorentina is undefeated in their last 4 games while having 2 wins during that streak. Thanks to this run, Fiorentina is now in 8th place with 50 points, but I don’t think they have enough depth and quality to reach the Europa League spot. Fiorentina hasn’t scored more than 1 goal in their last 7 games, and that was expected after they sold Vlahovic, but it wasn’t expected they will keep playing this well. Now that Vlahovic is gone, Torreira and Biraghi are the leading goalscorers with 4 goals each, while Gonzalez has added 5 assists. Torreira is suspended because of the yellow cards. Bonnaventura is injured. I like Fiorentina, I do, I think they are one of the most iconic Serie A teams, but they haven’t had any success over the last few seasons. Fiorentina is producing a lot of young players, but they sell them too soon, and because of that they will not win anything soon.
Both teams are in great form right now, but Napoli has a lot more to lose if they don’t get the win here. We are getting a great price for the home team, and I will take it.
