Napoli take on the visitors Monza in the round 2 match of Italian Serie A. The match will be played on Sunday, August 21st at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona (Naples).
Napoli revamped ahead of this season. "Parthenopeia" can be generally satisfied with the outcome of the last draw. Yes, in the end, the club from Naples gradually fell behind a couple of favorites from Milan. But even the 3rd place, after previous failures, became a clear breakthrough... And at the same time, it was a kind of "swan song" for a whole generation of veteran leaders. Compared to the spring, Ospina and Coulibaly, Mertens and Insigne are no longer in the team. It was interesting to see how painlessly Spalletti could replace them with Sirigu, Kim, Ostigor, Matthias Oliveira, who came outside the “window”, and the further fate of Kvaratskhelia was especially interesting. Well, Khvicha started with a goal and an assist, and his new team defeated Verona on the road.

Monza - 1 of the main intrigues of the season. The "White-Red" have attracted increased attention in recent years. Which is not surprising, because Silvio Berlusconi became the new owner of the project. True, it was possible to rise to Calcio only following the results of the last draw, and not directly. The club in the "regular season" Serie B took only 4th place, but managed to win an playoff. Before the long-awaited debut, a new team was actually assembled, with a number of notable newcomers - Marlon, Ranocchia, Pablo Mari, Sensi, Cranio, Petagna, Mancuso, Caprari. But they all still need to be united by Giovanni Stroppe into a team. So far, the debut has been unsuccessful, albeit not a failure. The newcomer lost to Torino 1-2 in his field. And ahead is an even more difficult opponent, and also the match is at San Paolo.
There were only 4 meetings between the clubs in 1999-2000. The sides won once, and draws were recorded twice more. Napoli confidently coped with a more experienced opponent on the road and now they are accepting a newcomer at home. We recommend betting that this time the hosts will win with a handicap of "-1 goal".
Prediction for the match: Napoli to win with -1.0 handicap.
