Fiorentina vs Napoli by PatrickBateman
Fiorentina are currently 8th with 26 points. They lost their last two games, 1:0 against Genoa and 3:1 against Lazio, both on the road. However, at home they are unbeaten in the league this season. Interestingly, their goal difference at home is only 8:4. And considering that their overall goal difference is 25:21, we see how different they play at home. However, all of those conceded goals at home came in the last four games, which culd mean that their trend is changing. They are attackingly potent team, which can make anyone`s day hard.
Napoli are 3rd with 34 points. They have only one loss in the last twelve competitive games, and they are currently on a nine-game unbeaten run. After a short period of "stuttering" they pushed on and won three straight league games, scoring 13 goals in process. They smashed Inter 3:0, Cagliari 5:0 and Torino 5:3. They are attackingly most prolific teams in the league, with 37 goals scored. They are also one of the league`s best visiting teams, grabing 14 points and averaging almost 2 goals per game.
Napoli looked fantastic in the last three games, and they are coming into this one as favourites. They will be full of confidence, but they will be visiting the team which is yet to lose a game at home. Fiorentina have conceded goal in the last four home matches, while Napoli have conceded in six out of last seven competitive fixtures on the road. At some point, earlier in the season, it wouldn`t be realistic to expect both teams scoring. However, recent results of both teams suggest that this time we should expect that. Both teams are playing with attacking intent, and both teams are not solid defensively. If Napoli is going to win, I can`t see that happening while keeping a clean sheet. Also, if Fiorentina wins, I can still hardly see a clean sheet. It could end as a draw but I think that whatever the outcome may be, we will see goals coming from both ends, with the game being open one. Therefore I think that both teams to score with over 2.5 goals is the right pick here.
