Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Napoli will look to put an end to their three-game winless run in the Serie A when they welcome Salernitana to their Stadio Diego Armando Maradona on Matchday 20. The Neapolitans will be without Victor Osimhen and Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa in Saturday’s clash as the duo is on the international duty, while defender Pasquale Mazzocchi misses out through suspension. Anyhow, Walter Mazzarri’s men will not have a better chance than this to return to winning ways in the Serie A.
I Granata, on the other hand, aim to make amends for back-to-back defeats to Juventus. Salernitana have been struggling at the back and, taking everything into account, they are unlikely to claim a major scalp in the Serie A round 20. To make things even worse for the relegation strugglers, both Lassana Coulibaly and Jovane Cabral are on the international duty, while Giulio Maggiore serves a one-game ban.
