Our match prediction:
Buoyed by a thrilling 5-1 win over Udinese, Torino take on Napoli at their Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino on Sunday night. Il Toro aim to finish the season in the top half of the table, while the Partenopei will give their best to clinch second place in the standings and book their place in the Champions League group stages. The Neapolitans recorded a hard-fought 2-1 win over Atalanta at the weekend and seeing that they are just two points clear of third-placed Roma in the Serie A standings, Maurizio Sarri’s troops face a must-win situation in Sunday’s football game against Torino and we predict that the visitors will stick to their attacking style of play. Il Toro are stuck in the middle of the table and, taking everything into account, away win should be considered. Gonzalo Higuain scored a brace against Atalanta and he is likely to prove a handful for the opposition back line.
