Frosinone vs Napoli
Italian Serie A
Date: Sunday, 28 April 2019
Kick-Off 11:30 UK / 12:30 CET
Venue: Stadio Benito Stirpe (Frosinone).
Frosinone have all but suffered relegation to Serie B football. They are as many as ten points shy of the safe zone with only five games left to play.
Given they are set to play the likes of Napoli and Milan before the end of the season, avoiding the drop to second division is a mission impossible for Marco Baroni and his troops.
Napoli, on the other hand, have nowhere to go in five remaining matches of the season. They sit second, but as many as 20 points short of Juventus at the very top of the standings.
The lack of motivation caused a series of slower displays in the last couple of weeks. Partinopei thus won only one of last four league matches. If we add a pair of Europa League defeats to Arsenal, we can say Carlo Ancelotti’s men are in sort of crisis.
Frosinone vs Napoli: Head-to-head
The head to head record completely favours Napoli who won six and drew two of eight encounters with Canarini.
Partinopei demolished Frosinone by four goals difference in each of last three head to head outings.
The streak includes this term’s 4-0 drubbing of Frosinone in mid-December last year at Stadio San Paolo.
Frosinone vs Napoli: Prediction
Napoli struggled for goals lately. They bagged just one goal in last two matches in all competitions. They are up against one of the weakest defensive sides in the competition here, but we’d certainly advise you to avoid any high-stake bets knowing the visitors’ lack of motivation at this stage of the season.
Frosinone scored only two goals in last three games. They lost two in a row against Inter Milan and Cagliari. Looking at the head to head record and the mere quality of teams, the away win is the only logical betting option.
However, we don’t expect it to be a super high-margin victory. Under 3.5 goals FT is paid at the odds of 1.50 and I will be our main betting option.
