Serie A: Fiorentina vs Napoli

Fiorentina vs Napoli Betting Tip and Predictions. In the Round 18 in Italian Serie A, Fiorentina host Napoli at Stadio Artemio Franchi. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Fiorentina vs Napoli.

Fiorentina started this season in Serie A solid and after 17 rounds they are standing at the 8th position. Their main goal is to finish the season in the Top 5 and play in the Europa League next season. In order to achieve their goal they have to start playing better and improve their performance. They lost the last two games, so they will be fully motivated to make good result upfront their supporters. Fiorentina play very good at home and they are still unbeaten at Artemio Franchi, so they hope that can take at least one point tonight. Their performance against Napoli is not impressive because they lost 4 of their last 5 meetings in all competitions (0-1-4). Last time they beat Napoli upfront their supporters in 2009, so they will be fully motivated to beat them this time. It won’t be an easy job, because visitors are playing very good this season, but one point would be acceptable for home side.

Napoli play very good this season in Serie A and they still believe that can win the title. Leader on the table, Juventus, have 8 points more than Napoli, so if they want to stay in the race for the title, they have to win this game. Visitors are unbeaten in the last 9 matches in all competitions, while they won the last 4 matches, including the match against Benfica in the group phase of the UEFA Champions League. Their striker, Mertens, has exploded in the last two games and scored 7 goals (3 against Cagliari and 4 against Torino), so he hope that continue with the good performance in the attack on this match. Napoli have the best attack in league so far. They scored 37 goals in 17 matches this season, while on the last 4 matches they scored 15 goals. It will be very hard for Fiorentina to secure their net, but they are playing very good at home, so they believe that can make positive result.
