Our football match prediction:
Having rolled over Cagliari (5-0) on Matchday 16, Napoli will be looking to melt Juve’s advantage in the Serie A standings with a victory over Torino. The Partenopei booked their place in the Champions League last 16, meaning that they will play on three fronts in the remainder of the season. Maurizio Sarri’s men, though, will not be into action in the elite competition until February, meaning that they should collect as many points as possible from upcoming league fixtures. Their next rivals Torino are low on confidence following a 3-1 loss to Juventus in the Derby della Mole and they are unlikely to spoil Napoli’s party at Stadio San Siro. It is well known that the Neapolitans are a real force to be reckoned with at home and we predict that the hosts will emerge triumphant in Sunday’s football match. Dries Mertens scored a hat-trick against Cagliari, meaning that the opposition defenders should have him at bay.
