Fiorentina are playing at home against Napoli in a match of round 23 of the Italian Serie A. The last weekend Viola couldn’t win again after the victory against Chievo and only reached a tie as a guest of Udinese. The form of Fiorentina in their home and away games is in full contrast. On Stadio Artemio Franchi, Stefano Pioli’s players have just two losses – against the defending champions Juventus and the novices Parma.
Napoli redeemed themselves after the failure against Milan for Coppa Italia and won against Sampdoria with 3-0. This success was number 16 for Carlo Ancelotti’s players, and now they are solid on the second place in the standings because the difference from Inter is 11 points. At home, Napoli may not have a loss, but as guests, they have three defeats – against Inter, Juventus and Sampdoria.
The game on Saturday is expected to be exciting and unpredictable. In recent weeks, the young players of Fiorentina showed that they have massive potential after scoring 17 goals in five fixtures in all competitions. However, now they have to play against one of the best away teams in the league. We expect both sides to attack and exchange of goals. The home team didn’t have a clean sheet in the previous six games in front of their fans, while Napoli have conceded at least one goal in each of their away fixtures versus teams from the top half of the table.
