Napoli vs Frosinone
Italian Serie A
Date: Saturday, 8 December 2018
Kick-Off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Stadion San Paolo (Naples).
Napoli will be looking for a comprehensive confidence-boosting victory on Saturday afternoon when they host Frosinone in the 15th round of Serie A. Partinopei will want to raise the spirits inside the dressing room ahead of the crucial Champions League tie with Liverpool next week at Anfield. They are obviously massive favourites against the struggling Frosinone side here and everything but a commanding home win would represent an upset for us.
The visitors sit second from bottom with just eight points from 14 league games so far in the season. They won just one match in the process and have a dreadful 1-1-5 record on travels this term. Canarini were close to bagging their second win of the campaign last weekend when they had an early lead against Cagliari at Stadio Benito Stirpe. Nevertheless, they failed to hold on to it allowing a late equalizer which set the final score 1-1 on the occasion.
Napoli vs Frosinone: Head-to-head
- Napoli were brutal in last term’s double header against Canarini.
- They notched nine goals in two demolishing victories over Frosinone.
- Overall, Napoli won five, drew two and lost none of seven head to head encounters with Canarini.
- It is interesting to mention that six of seven head to head affairs between these two likes saw goals scored at both ends.
Napoli vs Frosinone: Prediction
Carlo Ancelotti’s men escaped on a three-point cushion ahead of Inter Milan in third after beating Atalanta 1-2 away in Bergamo last weekend. Substitute Arkadiusz Milik scored the match-winner five minutes from time on the day. Partinopei thus rebounded from a disappointing goalless draw at home to Chievo.
Napoli only allowed four goals in seven home matches this season in Serie A and Frosinone will likely struggle to create up front on the afternoon. We expect the hosts to dominate the pitch from the first minute and to keep things tight at the back once again at their San Paolo.
