Napoli vs Fiorentina Italian Serie A Predictions and Match Preview by LeagueLane

Napoli vs Fiorentina
Italian Serie A
Date: 7 May 2023, Sunday
Kick-off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Diego Armando Maradona (Naples).

Champions Napoli will host Coppa Italia finalists Fiorentina in a festive atmosphere on Sunday afternoon at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.

It was all ready for the huge celebrations seven days ago in Naples but Salernitana ruined the party with a late equalizer, taking two points away from the section leaders.

Nevertheless, it was only a matter of time before Napoli mathematically secured their maiden Scudetto since 1989/90 with a huge advantage Luciano Spalletti’s boys had earned earlier in the campaign.

Napoli will officially celebrate this Sunday and we expect another amazing choreography and atmosphere in and around the stadium on the occasion.

Fiorentina’s lack of proper ambitions in the remaining five games of the Serie A campaign may as well help the hosts to mark the celebrations with a victory.

As a matter of fact, Vincenzo Italiano may easily rotate his starting lineup through a congested schedule with eyes on the European prize.

I Viola will play host to Basel in the first leg of the UEFA Europa Conference League semifinal on Thursday and they will also face Inter Milan in the Coppa Italia final later this month.

In terms of their form, Italiano’s men bagged eight goals in the previous two league outings against Sampdoria and Salernitana. It was enough for four points, though, since they drew 3-3 at Salernitana on Wednesday night.

Napoli vs Fiorentina Head-to-head

  • Napoli will go into this winless in three successive clashes against I Viola, a run that includes a goalless draw in this term of the Serie A back in August last year.
  • Napoli won 11, drew 6, and lost 7 of the last 24 home matches against Fiorentina and they lead the overall H2H tie by 5 wins ahead of the 49th clash with I Viola.
  • Three of the previous four H2H outings between the two outfits finished with the Over 2.5 goals FT & Both Teams To Score pick coming in.

Napoli vs Fiorentina Prediction

We have seen at least five goals in each of Fiorentina’s previous three Serie A games. The visitors have clearly not been paying much attention to defense of late in the league outings.

Taking everything into consideration, we will back Napoli to win & Both Teams To Score as the main bet at the 3.40 odds, while you can also go with the league’s top scorer Victor Osimhen to score anytime at the 2.00 odds.
