Our football match prediction:
Napoli made a flying start to the season, with the team recording back-to-back wins over the likes of Hellas Verona and Atalanta. The Partenopei need to keep on winning if they are to put an end to Juve’s dominance in the Serie A and they are seen as hot favourites to pick up all three points from Sunday’s football match against Bologna. Dries Mertens found the net in the come-from-behind triumph over Atalanta and the Belgium international is likely to prove a handful for the opposition back-line this weekend. Bologna shared the spoils with Torino on home soil in their opener, with the team recording a come-from behind win at Benevento on Matchday 2, but Napoli are likely to pose a much bigger threat for the Rossoblu than their previous rivals. Bologna suit the Neapolitans and, taking everything into account, Maurizio Sarri’s men are likely to keep their 100% record in the 2017/2018 Serie A campaign intact.
