Fiorentina will face Napoli at Artemio Franchi Stadium at Italian Serie A 23th Round. Fiorentina against Napoli is the match with big interest after their previous matches at Italian Serie A. Review our thoughts on this match here below. 

 

Fiorentina

Fiorentina this season is not showing great results, as they were struggling at the end of last year. There was an excerpt from 8 games without a single victory. Fiorentina’s favorite result is 1:1 as they played 6 times with the same result. While playing at home, Fiorentina lost only two times against Parma and Juventus, both were in the year 2018.

Fiorentina has a great team with several very strong and experienced players. The week-ago Fiorentina won against Roma with unforgettable 7:1 result. That should give to the squad many confidence and the belief that they can win against any opponent. All main squad players are fit and ready to play against Napoli. Moreover, Luis Muriel came from Sevilla on Loan to help the team achieve the results and add playful forces to the attack.

Fiorentina is great at counter attacks, creating chances using through balls and creating scoring chances. Very likely that Viola will take a lot of shots, attack through the middle and play aggressively. However, they are facing problems at defending against long shots and avoiding fouling in dangerous areas.

 

Napoli

Napoli is showing great football this season as they stay at the 2nd position of Serie A. Now Napoli is 9 points away from Juventus and they have to try to catch up the leaders. Unfortunately, they were kicked from the Champions League and will play in the Europa League. The team is very well-formed and strong, able to play even against the most powerful teams in the world.

Società Sportiva Calcio Napoli has strong and experienced players like L. Insigne, Allan, A. Milik D. Mertens, and J. Callejon. All main squad players are fit and ready to give a fight against Fiorentina.

This season Gli Azzurri is great at shooting from direct free kicks, counter attacks and coming back from losing positions. Very likely that Neapoli will control the game on opposition’s half, possess the ball and take long shots.

 

H2H

During the last two years, teams have met 5 times. Napoli was more successful and won 3 matches while playing at home, Fiorentina won last year at home 3:0 and once they played a draw. As a fact, the home team has more chances, because they are undefeated at home against each other.
