Competition: Serie A
Market: Napoli win and over 1.5 goals
Odds: 7/10 @ Bet 365
Looking to close the deficit on the Champions League spots, a resurging Napoli will welcome Torino to the Stadio San Paolo on Saturday night.
Starting with the hosts, while Napoli may have been disappointed to have only collected a 1-1 draw against Barcelona while on Champions League duties, the Blues have really bounced back from their shock defeat against Leece earlier in the month. Now winning four of their last five Serie A outings and starting to adjust to life under new boss Gennaro Gattuso, the former AC Milan Head Coach should be confident of making another statement this weekend. Undoubtedly still boosted by what was a stunning 2-1 win against reigning champions Juventus last month, Napoli also knocked title contenders Lazio out of the Coppa Italia on home soil and rightfully open Saturday’s contest as a favorite with the bookmakers.
On the flip side, while the mood in Napoli’s camp might be on the rise, Torino find themselves in the midst of what is a growing crisis. Starting to look over their shoulder at the drop zone, the Bulls find themselves in the midst of what has been a woeful six-match losing run and dealing with some issues off the pitch. Transforming into Serie A’s biggest strugglers since opening the New Year, Head Coach Moreno Longo saw his side hit with an embarrassing 7-0 hammering against Atalanta last month and Torino are dealing with some glaring problems at the back. Also enduring a torrid four-match losing run while away from the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino, Saturday’s guests have shipped 20 goals on their losing run and this weekend could be another overwhelming test for the Bulls.
Bet: Napoli 7/10 to beat Torino and over 1.5 goals 7/10 for Saturday’s Serie A showdown @ Bet 365
