Napoli vs Genoa: prediction for the Serie A match
Napoli had a flawless start to the season - Luciano Spalletti's team collected maximum points from the first eight games and stayed unbeaten longer than any other team in Serie A. However, in the last couple of months, they allowed Inter and AC Milan to overtake them. Currently, Napoli are in third place in the standings, seven points behind leaders AC Milan. In the last two games, they beat Sassuolo (6:1) and Torino (1:0).
Genoa, on the other hand, have failed their Serie A campaign. They spent almost the entire season in the relegation zone, and their chances of retaining the residence in the elite are purely theoretical - Alexander Blessin's side is in 19th place in the table, three points shy of overtaking Salernitana. After losing to Sampdoria (0:1), the Griffins upset Juventus (2:1).
The last 2 games between the teams ended with this score.
In the last 3 games of Napoli, this bet won.
In 2 of the last 3 home games, Napoli conceded after halftime.
Napoli can lose the third line to Juventus if they don't deliver successful performance in the final games of the season. Spaletti's men will definitely give Genoa's defenders a lot of work today. The Griffins have nothing to lose - they have to take risks in order to earn the precious points. We expect both sides to go all out in attack and score.
Our prediction – both to score
Napoli aren't in good form, but they are a better team than Genoa and should win today. We will back the favourite.
Second bet - Napoli to win
