Our football match prediction:
Napoli have been impressive in front of goal in the Serie A of late. Following a 5-0 win at Cagliari, the Partenopei outplayed Torino (5-3) at their Stadio San Paolo at the weekend, but it seems as if they are out of the race for Scudetto. Maurizio Sarri’s men are eight points behind league leaders Juventus, meaning that they face a must-win situation in Thursday’s football match against Fiorentina. Napoli are after their fifth consecutive win in all competitions, but beating Viola at Stadio Artemio Franchi is easier said than done. Fiorentina aim to make amends for back-to-back defeats to the likes of Genoa and Fiorentina and we predict that fans will see a high-scoring affair in Florence. Eight goals were scored in previous three meetings between the two teams in the Italian top flight and there is every chance both teams will find the net on Thursday evening.
