Both teams played in Europa League on Thursday as visitors, but becos this is a match on Monday, both teams should had enough time to rest.
Napoli needs to win to stay at 1 point in title race with Juventus. Fiorentina has chance to get closer to second place (Champions League ticket) in ranking if they can win from Napoli. In Europe, after 1-1 draw in 1st leg at home game against Tottenham, Fiorentina never could make a real fist in England. Fiorentina lost 2nd leg game 3-0 and are knocked out of Europa League. Napoli lost 1-0 in Spain against Villarreal in 1st leg of Europa League. In 2nd leg Napoli could open score with Hamsik after mistake from Spanish defense. Napoli missed some chances to make needed 2-0 to qualify in 90 minutes. With a strange ball Villarreal could tie (looked more like an pass). Napoli could not score 2 more goals with 30 minutes left and are out of Europa League.
Last week Napoli could retake 1st place after Juventus played draw (0-0 at Bologna) that weekend, but Napoli also played draw with AC Milan. Napoli dominate 1st half, but Higuain and Callejon could not finish off some good chances, 5 minutes before pauze Insigne opened score for Napoli. Some minutes later, just before pauze, Bonaventura already tied for AC milan. Second half was like first half, Napoli put pressure on opponent but failed to score second goal.
In last games, Napoli is having more trouble to finish off chances. They put pressure on opponents but they seem to have a hard time finding the net.
Fiorentina is recently playing well. But I dont see Napoli losing this game, Napoli will do anything to win this game and keep title dream alive. But with Napoli lately letting points with opponents (1/6 points), Fiorentina, with 6 on 6, can close gap to 2 points if they can win from Napoli tonight. So Fiorentina will be motivated too. Ofcourse, Napoli also wanna secure Champions League for next season and will do anything to enlarge gap.
Napoli won last 4 meetings with Fiorentina.
I dont think Fiorentina can win from Napoli, I keep little safety open with Asian handicap if Napoli would play draw again, then I only lose half bet, other options are to low odd.
My bet here is Napoli with Asian Handicap 0.0, -0.5 (-0.25AH) found at Bet365 for odd of 2.025. GL
