Fiorentina hosts Napoli in round 1 of Italian Serie A. The match will be played on Saturday, August 24th at Stadio Artemio Franchi (Florence)
Fiorentina is approaching the start of the Italian championship in a good mood. The Violets held seven friendly matches in the preseason. They gained five victories and suffered two defeats. The team lost to Arsenal and Benfica. Well, there was also a breathtaking victory over one of the Italian teams with a 21:0 score in the first friendly match. Fiorentina has already managed to debut in the cup, where it easily beat Monza.

Napoli also held friendly games in the preseason greatly. There were only two defeats in seven games. And both to Barcelona. Napoli also played one game in a draw.
According to bookmakers, Napoli is the favorite of the upcoming game. Nevertheless, it is the start of the season. The first round. I think the Violets will do everything to please their fans with the debut victory in the championship, Or at least with a draw since no one plans to start from a defeat at home. Talking about the shape in friendly games is not entirely correct. But, judging by the shape precisely in those matches, Fiorentina looked pretty good at the training camp. As I have already said, only two defeats in seven games. And five victories. Napoli lost both meetings with the Catalans and won Liverpool and Marseille. In general, Fiorentina feels rather confident in the home games with Napoli. Thus, the Blues cannot beat the Violets in Florence since 2014. Well, if we consider the big victories of Napoli in Florence, the Blues managed to achieve success with a difference of more than one goal only twice in the entire history of the confrontations at Artemio Franchi. And this history amounts to fifteen games. Therefore, I think the upcoming match is likely to be equal. All the same, Fiorentina is powerful at home. And I think that the Violets don’t plan to start the season with a defeat in front of their fans.
Prediction for the match: Fiorentina to win with +1.0 handicap
