Napoli vs Torino
SSC Napoli started this season unluckily and now trying to get back into the top places in Serie A. During the last 10 games, they lost twice surprisingly against Lecce and Fiorentina both at Stadio Paolo. However, they won 7 games what put them already at 6th place even with only 36 points and 9 defeats this season. Lots of troubles with injuries and manager changes take lots of time to find the right football even having such talented players in the team. This season, Gli Azzurri won only 4 games at home and only 1 in the last 5 Serie A meetings. So the next game should be a great chance to recover in front of their fans at home ground.
A few days ago the Parthenopeans played one of the important games this season. In 1/8 Final of Champions League, they took a really confident draw against Barcelona. They strongly stood in defence, created dangerous moments and perfect Mertens shot even gave an advantage in the first half of the game. However, Catalonians equalised the result in the second half and even got the red card at the end of the game. So we can call this match a big achievement for Napoli and Genaro Gattuso as well. After such a great result, they have to be in a great mood, even playing without several players after a difficult meeting.
The Marrons show absolutely embarrassing football lately. From the beginning of the season, they were unlucky as they failed to meet against Wolverhampton in UEFA Europa League qualification. Now they failed after the extra time against AC Milan in Coppa Italia’s Quarter-final. Moreover, slowly dropping down to the bottom of the Serie A standings. After a few defeats in a row team sacked Mazzarri. Two matches ago they appointed Moreno Lango, however, with a new manager they also lost two games in a row. At the moment, Torino stand at 14th place and slowly going down as only 5 points are between them and the relegation zone. During the last 6 games, they conceded 21 goals including 7 against Atalanta and surprisingly 4 from Lecce. However, we see them fighting till the end against Napoli. Espessily, knowing how difficult was the last game and most important players will be resting.
