Napoli opened the season with the Qualification battle to the Group stage of the UEFA Champions League against Nice resulting in 2:0 victory of the Neapolitans. In the reverse fixture of the UEFA Champions League Qualification the side secured its participation in the Group stage by having beaten the French opponent with the same score. After two rounds behind in the Serie A, “Partenopei” settle on the third place in the standings with six points gained and 6-2 goal difference. The visitors conducted only one match on the road so far: that clash against Verona ended with 3:1 scoreline in favour of Napoli. Maurizio Sarri’s team stays in great competitive form, having won in four encounters in a row.
Napoli are the obvious favourite of the upcoming fight. The Neapolitans succeeded in their three recent head-to-heads against Bologna with 16:2 aggregated score: 6:0, 3:1 and 7:1. Bearing in mind that Marek Hamsik and his teammates know how to play with Bologna, the visitors’ triumph looks like a solid selection for the game.
Prediction for the match: Napoli to win with -1.0 Asian handicap.
