SPAL vs Napoli
Italian Serie A
Date: Sunday, 12 May 2019
Kick-Off 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Paolo Mazza (Ferrara).
SPAL host Napoli in a very interesting clash of the Matchday No 36 in Serie A. The hosts are flying high coming into Sunday’s fixture at Stadio Paolo Mazza. They won three and drew one of past four league outings. The team scored at least four goals in two of last three matches, including last weekend’s 0-4 drubbing of rock-bottomed Chievo away at Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi.
Leonardo Semplici’s troops climbed up to 11th place in the league standings as a consequence. Can they finish the campaign in the top half of the ladder?
Napoli will finish the season as runners-up regardless of what happens in last three rounds. They are ten points clear off third-placed Inter Milan and as many as 16 points behind leaders Juventus at the moment.
SPAL vs Napoli: Head-to-head
Napoli were the dominant force in a short history of this match-up.
Partinopei won four and drew one of five encounters with Spallini.
Interestingly, each of Napoli’s four wins were by a single goal margin.
This includes a 1-0 victory for Partinopei back in late-December last year at Stadio San Paolo.
SPAL vs Napoli: Prediction
Napoli have played without an imperative for two months already. They played hot and cold throughput the process, but will come into this on a high after two consecutive victories over Frosinone and Cagliari.
Partinopei somehow managed to steal a 2-1 victory at home last weekend against Cagliari thanks to a late 98th-minute penalty from Lorenzo Insigne.
This match (circumstances and form) is an ideal chance for SPAL to bring a negative head to head tradition in clashes with Napoli to an end. The hosts are really flying high with six wins, one draw and one defeat in last eight league matches.
They are well worth backing not to lose at 2.37 odds, while braver punters can even try with the clear home win at the odds of 5.25.
