Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Serie A leader Fiorentina will travel towards Napoli for the 8th match in the Italian Serie A. Napoli is currently placed 6th on the table after a very difficult start in the national league. Fiorentina is currently in a victory streak and managed to beat Atalanta 3-0 in their last game. Napoli on the other hand humiliated AC Milan in San Siro with a sensational 0-4 victory. The previous 3 confrontations between La Viola and Gli Azzurri al end in a victory for Napoli. We expect Fiorentina to give Napoli a hard time but the team from Naples is too strong at home for the leader in the league.
