Napoli – Fiorentina Review
Napoli hosts Fiorentina at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona in a fixture from the 8th round of the Serie A. We are going to preview it in our free football tips. Let’s get to work!
Since losing against Lazio at home few weeks ago, Napoli are unbeaten in the league – two wins and two draws. This helped them climb to third place in the standings with 14 points won – 4 points less than the leader Inter Milan. Now Rudi Garcia’s team must keep winning in order to secure the first place in near future.
Last weekend Napoli enjoyed their 4th win for the season. The champions paid a visit to Lecce and made a terrific performance for a 4-0 win. Four different players scored for the Azzurri. Leo Ostigard opened the score for Napoli while Osimhen, Gaetano and Politano from a penalty kick finished the job.
During the week Napoli had a tough game against Real Madrid in the Champions League, so maybe Rudi Garcia will rotate the line-up in order to keep the team as fresh as possible. Players like Elmas, Raspadori, Simeone and Mario Rui could start against Fiorentina. The summer signing Jesper Lindstrom is also an option – he could cause some damage on the wings for Napoli.
Victor Osimhen is Napoli’s top scorer since the start of the season. The Nigerian striker has scored five goals in seven matches for the champions so far. There were some scandals with Osimhen recently, but now it seems that everything is okay once again. Napoli really needs the Nigerian striker to be on his best in order to win on a regular basis. Him and Kvaratskhelia are the team’s most influental players in the attack.
Fiorentina are having a good start of the 2023/24 season so far – La Viola are 5th in the league with 14 points – the same amount as Napoli. The head coach Vincenzo Italiano deserves some credit for the fantastic job he’s doing at the club so far. Last season Fiorentina reached the Conference League final while now the team looks even better.
Last weekend Fiorentina achieved their 4th win for the season. Italiano’s team hosted Cagliari at the Stadio Artemio Franchi and enjoyed a solid 3-0 win. Nicolas Gonzalez and M’Bala Nzola put the ball in the net while Cagliari’s Dossena scored himself an own goal.
Vincenzo Italiano’s 4-2-3-1 formation works very well so far. Arthur looks comfortable since his arrival in Florence while Bonaventura, Brekalo and Gonzalez are causing damage behind the striker. What makes Fiorentina so dangerous at the moment is how fluid they are in their transitions. Napoli will have to be very careful with this opponent.
