In the next round of the championship of Italy 7th April. Meet “Lecce” – “Napoli”. Both teams no longer have enough motivation in the championship – the hosts have secured themselves the Scudetto, and the guests insured themselves against relegation.
The home team was defeated in the last four games, but it had little effect on their position in the standings. The “yellow-red” have 27 points and they are 8 points behind the three outsiders. In the four rounds that they lost, the teams from the relegation zone did not get many points either, so the home team probably has enough to spare. True, for some reason they play much worse at home than away.
The Neapolitans are having a very strong season and are already 19 points ahead of second-placed Lazio. And it is probably the only top club that plays equally well in the championship and in the Champions League, without sacrificing anything. But now, as the League enters the decisive stage, the visitors will surely focus on it, which means that their opponents will have additional chances.
In the match of the first round the teams played 1:1
In 4 of the last 5 Napoli matches the total was not broken 2.5 goals
The visitors will try to win “on class,” and their class is primarily evident in defense – in 14 games on foreign fields, they conceded only 7 goals. It is unlikely that the hosts will be able to break through such a defense, because they themselves do not score that often.
