On January 21, Napoli and Salernitana will meet on the field. Naturally, Napoli is considered the favorite, but is it all so clear?
Salernitan conceded too much in their last match against Atalanta (2-8) and that could negatively affect the team. Now they are in 16th place with 18 points and nine points ahead of their opponent from the relegation zone, but the coaching staff should make serious changes. Another recent match for Salernitana was a 1-1 draw with Torino.
Napoli are in terrific form and increasing the gap from their direct rivals in the fight for the gold medals. Spalletti’s side are now closer than ever to becoming champions, nine points ahead of their closest rivals. Napoli thrashed Juventus 5-1 on home soil in the last round and lost on penalties to Cremonese 2-3 in the Italian Cup, but it’s hardly a tragedy for the Neapolitans.
- Napoli have won six of their last ten matches in all competitions
- Salernitana are winless in eight games in a row
- Napoli have beaten Salernitana in their last four matches
- Six of the last ten games between the clubs ended in a draw under 2.5 goals
Napoli have been fighting for the championship since the start of the season, and they cannot lose points in a match against a team that is inferior in class. We suggest to bet on a confident win for Napoli.
