Napoli vs Salernitana
Italian Serie A
Date: Sunday, 30 April 2023
Kick-off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Diego Armando Maradona (Naples).

Salernitana’s eight-game unbeaten thread will be on a serious test on Saturday afternoon when Paulo Sousa’s men visit Stadio Diego Armando Maradona for the clash with sovereign leaders Napoli in Gameweek 32.

Napoli extended the lead at the top of the Serie A standings by stealing three points from the Allianz Stadium six days ago.

I Partinopei got away with two disallowed goals for Juventus late in the game, while their Giacomo Raspadori fired the winner in the third minute of added time to help Napoli get the big win in Turin.

Luciano Spalletti’s troops have thus ended a three-game winless thread across competitions and they are once again 17 points clear at the top of the league table.

Only a miracle can now prevent I Partinopei from lifting the Scudetto next month. They can even mathematically secure the title this weekend with a win over Salermitana and Lazio’s loss at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.

Salernitana, on the other side, grabbed a very important 3-0 victory over Sassuolo seven days ago.

Their top scorer Boulaye Dia confirmed his great form with a goal and an assist on the occasion as Paulo Sousa’s troops extended the unbeaten thread to eight league outings. The visitors are now seven points above the danger area.

Napoli vs Salernitana Head-to-head

  • Napoli have been the dominant force in the history of this matchup and they will go into this on the back of five subsequent victories over Salernitana.
  • I Partinopei won five and drew two of the previous seven home clashes with Salernitana with a 16-5 goal difference along the way.
  • Salernitana found the back of the net just twice in the last seven clashes against I Partinopei.

Napoli vs Salernitana Prediction

Napoli have been tough to break down throughout the whole season, especially of late as they allowed just one goal in the previous three matches despite facing AC Milan and Juventus in the process.

Salernitana notched only two goals in the last seven H2H outings against Napoli. We are thus more than tempted to take the home win to nil pick at the 1.80 odds. Alternatively, we will take the 3.20 odds offered for the league’s top scorer Victor Osimhen to score the first goal of the game.

Napoli vs Salernitana Betting Tips

  • Napoli to win to nil @ 1.80 (4/5)
  • Victor Osimhen to score the first goal @ 3.20 (11/5) odd.
