Fiorentina vs Napoli
Italy Serie A,
Date: Sunday, 3 October 2021
Kick-off 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Artemio Franchi.
Fiorentina host Napoli in one of the most exciting games of the weekend in Serie A. Can I Partinopei maintain their perfect record and survive a serious test in Florence?
Napoli have been unstoppable in the opening six rounds of the new season. They are currently the only team in the league with a perfect record and deservedly hold the very top of the standings.
I Partinopei are just flying high this season under Luciano Spalletti who seems to have managed to find the way to take the full advantage of the team’s immense potential.
At the moment, Napoli boast the second-best attacking record with 16 goals scored and the best defensive record with just 2 goals allowed.
Spalletti’s men have been particularly impressive on recent travels, scoring four unanswered goals past Udinese and Sampdoria each in the last two away games.
Napoli bagged at least two goals in all four matches on the road this season, including the 2-2 draw away at Leicester City at the beginning of the UEFA Europa League campaign.
They did get off to a somewhat slower start in the continental competition, falling 2-3 at home to the likes of Spartak Moscow on Thursday, but it is clear that Spalletti primarily aims towards the Scudetto title challenge.
Nevertheless, claiming the spoils from Stadio Artemio Franchi will be much easier said than done for Napoli given that Fiorentina have also raised their game recently.
Viola won four of the last five Serrie A matches and they are currently legitimate candidates for the battle for European positions at the end of the season.
Fiorentina vs Napoli Head-to-head
- Napoli demolished Fiorentina both home and away in the previous term of the Serie A (6-0 at home and 2-0 on the road).
- It is interesting to mention that both teams scored just once in the last eight head to head encounters.
- The outfits have 8 wins apiece from the last 21 games at Stadio Artemio Franchi.
Fiorentina vs Napoli Prediction
All but one of Fiorentina’s six games this season have provided the Over 2.5 goals FT & Both Teams To Score option. Looking at the attacking potential both Viola and I Partinopei have, we can hardly see either of these two teams failing to find the back of the net on Sunday.
As for the outcome, we believe that Fiorentina have what it takes to pull off something here, even more so because Napoli had a tough Europa League game on Thursday.
