Napoli hosts Lecce in round 23 of Italian Serie A. The match will be played on Sunday, February 9th at Stadio San Paolo (Naples)
Napoli failed this season. The team had already taught Italian football public that its place is on the podium, and even in the struggle for gold. And now the Neapolitans are only in 9th place. There can be no talk about medals. Napoli will fight for the Europa League, and the margin to it is only two points. And the team is likely to win them back. The last two results of Napoli in the championship give the reason to say so. It beat Sampdoria (4-2). Well, that's fine. But before that, the Neapolitans coped with Juventus (2-1). And this was an unexpected result. After such indicators, Lecce, which takes 17th place in the standings, should simply be dismantled for parts.

And it will be dismantled, in spite of the convincing victory over Torino in the last round (4-0). Not Lecce won there - Torino still cannot come to its senses after a 7-0 defeat to Atalanta. Before that, Lecce only scored one point in six matches and lost in five of them. And it was losing already in the first half in three of them.
Surely, the same scenario awaits Lecce in Naples. The hosts tasted the victories. The Europa League zone is within easy reach. And who knows, maybe Napoli will be able to compete for a place in the Champions League. The gap to Atalanta is nine points. But the Goddess has to play in the Champions League, and it probably will lose points. Therefore, the Neapolitans will surely present their claims to three points in the first half. In the last three head-to-head matches in the championship, Napoli beat Lecce in this format.
Prediction for the match: Napoli to win the first half and the match
