Napoli took three points in Turin after the most offensive departure from the Champions League on the strength of their will. The 80-minute match was frankly boring. After two marked goals in their own goal, Napoli did push the goal. Now they just need to beat Salernitana at home and the long-awaited gold is in the pocket.
The Neapolitans crashed out of the Champions League after failing to beat Milan at home after 0-1 at the San Siro (0-1, 1-1), and Hvicia has yet to convert a penalty, but Napoli are close to a Serie A title, and the Scudetto in Naples should celebrate loudly. Spaletti’s team took a serious step toward the title last weekend when they downed Juventus in Turin with a Raspadori goal (1-0) in the compensatory time. Now the victory over Salernitana will bring the Neapolitans the Scudetto and there is no doubt that in a week the team will both recover and seriously prepare for this match.
The Seahorses, I think, will not refuse to participate in the coronation of Napoli. Paulo Sousa’s team made a serious breakthrough in the last month and a half to secure itself from relegation from Serie A. After 3 draws 1-1 with Inter, Spezia and Torino, the team from Salerno defeated Sassuolo at home last round 3-0 and broke away from the relegation zone by 7 points. Yes, it will be difficult against Napoli’s attack, but Salerno’s attack could also contribute to the home side’s victory.
I like to bet on a head-to-head victory for the favorite here. Last season at Diego Armando Maradona they played 4-1 in favor of the hosts, and in the first round in Salerno the Neapolitans won 2-0. Here, on the other hand, there will be a sense of celebration and concert, the teams will play the attacking soccer that they promote from themselves in Serie A. Napoli are superior in class. Osimen is gradually gaining form, so the home team’s attack will be tormenting the Salernitan defense. I expect a top match and officially won the title by the Neapolitans through the top in a bright match, as they have played all season.
