Game Preview

On Sunday, Napoli, who currently hold a 4-2-1 record, will be hosting Fiorentina at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona. Fiorentina also boast a 4-2-1 record at Serie A, only below the Gli Azzurri due to goal differential, as both squads have gathered 14 points. This matchup promises a plethora of soccer highlights, with the promise of securing 3rd place in the Serie A table after the game.


Napoli continues to be #1 in expected goals (15.0), thanks to their powerful front duo. Throughout the season, Napoli has given a total of 6 goals, resulting in an average of 0.86 goals conceded per 90 minutes. Since Kim Min Jae was sold to Bayern Munich in the last transfer window, Napoli has suffered from instability in the back, especially in the later stages of the game.


In terms of goal difference, Napoli still holds a positive margin of 10, with 16 goals scored and 6 goals conceded. The team managed to keep a clean sheet in 3 matches, mainly thanks to the efforts from their goalkeeper who has made a total of 10 saves, resulting in a save rate of 68.8% for the Gli Azzurri.

In terms of their defensive block, they have conceded an average of 1.67 goals per 90 minutes, making a total of 20 saves and achieving only 1 clean sheet. Nobody expected Fiorentina to push out of the mid table, however Vincenzo Italiano has been able to find a system that works well under pressure, netting them crucial points in the Europa League race.


This will be a fierce matchup where both sides will go all out in order to break out the 3rd position deadlock in the Serie A table. There is a slight edge in quality for Napoli, however due to recent controversy involving their superstar Victor Osimhen, The Blues might be rather distracted. Thus keep a close eye for Fiorentina this time around.
