Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Stadio Renato Dall’Ara will host Sunday’s football match between Bologna and Napoli. The Rossoblu proved their worth in a thrilling 5-1 win over Cremonese, meaning that they are brimming with confidence ahead of the visit of Napoli. Fit-again striker Marko Arnautovic should keep his place up front as a lone forward after finding the net in the last league match, while Riccardo Orsolini misses out through suspension. Both Adama Soumaoro and Roberto Soriano remain on the sidelines with injuries.
The Partenopei, on the other hand, aim to put the icing on the cake on a very successful season and given their attacking potential, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on over 2.5 goals. Forward Hirving Lozano misses out with a knee injury, but the Mexico international should be the only absentee in the away team.
Highlighted Player (Giovanni Simeone):
Giovanni Simeone is a product of River Plate football academy. Simeone played for los Millonarios at senior level from 2014 to 2016 and he moved to Genoa in the summer of 2016. The former River Plate man scored his first goal for the club in a 1-1 draw with Pescara on September 25, 2016 and two months later he scored a brace in a 3-1 victory over Serie A giants Juventus.
The prolific attacker netted 12 goals in 35 matches for the Rossoblu in the 2016/2017 Serie A campaign and, as a result, Fiorentina chiefs decided to sign him at the end of the season. The son of Atletico Madrid boss Diego joined the Viola on a five-year contract. Giovanni was born in Madrid on July 5, 1995 and due to his dual citizenship, he is eligible to represent both Argentina and Spain at senior level.
It has to be noted that he scored 12 goals in 12 appearances for the Argentina U20 team and he helped La Albiceleste win the 2015 South American Youth Football Championship.
