Napoli vs Fiorentina Preview

The Serie A champions Napoli welcome Fiorentina to the Stadio Maradona on Sunday after the hosts ended a 33-year long wait to be crowned champions, following their draw to Udinese last weekend. Despite the Partenopei having now clinched the title, they haven’t particularly been in the best of form – winning just once in their last six matches in all competitions. The Neapolitans have seen their side score just thrice in the last four league games, although, now having nothing to play for – Luciano Spalletti’s men may either be on the beach or might come out all guns blazing. After scoring the all-important goal against Udinese – Victor Osimhen now sits on 22 goals, three ahead of Lautaro Martinez in the race for the golden boot. Despite their recent drop in form, Napoli have been one of the best teams at home this season, winning 11 of their 16 games, having lost just twice. With the Serie A title now under their belt, along with their Champions League exploits this season, reaching the quarter-finals for the first time ever – this season will be considered a successful one for Luciano Spalletti and his men.

The visitors Fiorentina come into this game having scored 8 goals in their last two league matches – emerging victorious 5-0 against Sampdoria followed by a hard fought 3-3 draw against Salernitana last weekend. Vincenzo Italiano’s men currently sit eighth in the table on 46 points, with a top 4/6 finish looking very difficult unless something miraculous takes place. Fiorentina may have their heads elsewhere though, with the Europa Conference League semi-finals this week and a COPA Italia final against Inter later this month. With qualification for European football looking slim by their league position, winning the cup competitions would not only see Italiano’s side end a long wait for silverware, but also grant them direct qualification for next season’s Europa League. The Fiorentina faithful will be optimistic looking at their side’s record at the Naples, having won five of their last eight matches. Having conceded three goals in each of their last two away matches, we could be in for a goal fest on Sunday that could see the result go either way.
