Competition: Serie A

Market: Both teams to score

Odds: 3/4 @ 888sport

Hoping to find a route back to the top of the Serie A table on Sunday afternoon, Napoli will welcome Fiorentina to the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.

Starting with the hosts, watching AC Milan drop points earlier in the week, Napoli will be looking to pounce on what they should be billed as a golden chance on Sunday afternoon. Marking their return from March’s international break with a hugely impressive display on the road, the Blues eventually picked up a thumping 3-1 victory away at Atalanta. Opening this weekend’s fixtures sat just one point adrift of climbing to the top of the Serie A table, Head Coach Luciano Spalletti has seen his side win each of their last three top-flight contests on the spin. Desperate to claim their first domestic crown since 1990, the one-time Inter Milan boss has also seen his side continue to shine with their displays in the final third. Spearheaded by attacking MVP Victor Osimhen, Napoli will be desperate to lay down another marker when they return to the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.

As for the visitors, also marking their return from the international break with a routine victory at home against Empoli, Fiorentina have continued to impress many across Italy this season. Sat just two points adrift of breaking into the top-six and with a European finish at the top of their wishlist, Head Coach Vincenzo Italiano has seen his side lose just a pair of their last nine matchups, a run that stems back to February 5th. Looking to cause what would be a real upset when they travel to Naples on Sunday afternoon, the Purples have also largely impressed with their displays on the road. Last seen away from the Stadio Artemio Franchi playing out a 1-1 draw against defending champions Inter Milan, we could be in for an enjoyable affair here. With each of Fiorentina’s last six away fixtures finishing with both teams finding the net, we’re backing a similar outcome here.

Bet: Both teams to score at Napoli vs Fiorentina 3/4 for Sunday’s Serie A matchup @ 888sport
