Our match prediction:
Napoli kicked off the new Serie A campaign with a 2-2 draw against Pescara, but they impressed in a 4-2 victory over Milan on day 2. To make things even better for the fans, the Partenopei crushed Palermo at Stadio Renzo Barbera at the weekend, with Jose Callejon scoring a brace for the Neapolitans. Napoli head into Saturday’s football game against Bologna following a come-from-behind win over Dynamo Kiev in the Champions League and, no doubt, the hosts are high on confidence ahead of the visit of the Rossoblu. Bologna did well to beat Cagliari in front of home fans at the weekend and thanks to the triumph the team climbed to the top half of the standings. In their last meeting at Stadio San Paolo Napoli outclassed Bologna 6-0 and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself. Summer signing Milik scored a brace against Dynamo Kiev and he is likely to prove a handful for the opposition back line.
