On February 5, two teams will meet on the same field with a clear superiority in class on the side of Napoli, do their opponents have a chance?
Spetzia surely wants to keep their place in Serie A in their third year in the top division, but once again everything is very thin for the hosts. Three defeats in a row have now relegated the black and white to 17th place in the championship, and Spetsia also dropped out of the cup. Needless to say, but the failures were very big and painful – 2-5 from Atalanta in the Cup and 0-2 from Roma and Bologna in the championship. Verona is already 5 points away, so the owners have less and less margin of safety, and with such a game it will be difficult to oppose Napoli.
The Neapolitans are going straight to the Scudetto this season and while all the other competitors are losing points plus Juventus are fined, Spalletti’s team has won four league games in a row. Even the cup elimination allows Napoli to concentrate on Serie A until the LF. 2-1 with Roma, 2-0 with Salerniatna, 5-1 with Juventus and 2-0 with Sampdoria look convincing in 2023. Few things can stop the guests with La Spezia.
A confident victory for the guests through such a minus handicap is inevitable, at least. Spetsia are on the decline and in the last 3 games with different kinds of opponents lost only 2 goals or more, while Napoli with Hviche, Osimhen, Simeone, Raspadori and co are very powerful attack and rushing towards the Scudetto by leaps and bounds. The hosts in their current state against the guests, who are in fiery conditions, are probably ready to throw out the white flag in advance. There is little intrigue in this encounter, and the favorite must pick up his three points with confidence.
