Aware that the race for the top 4 is getting closer, Napoli will try to get back to winning ways when they play Torino at the Stadio Olimpico on January 7.
Despite the majority of the key players remaining in Naples, Mazzarri’s team is a shadow of the one that took over to the title under Luciano Spalletti the previous year. Already eliminated from the title race, Mazzarri’s team is 4 points behind Bologna, who stand 4th with 2 games remaining in the initial half of the season. Osimhen, a Nigerian striker headed to the AFCON, signed a new contract with the club recently despite some public disagreements with them. Still, Napoli fell 4-0 to Frosinone in the Coppa Italia, even though he was a substitute in their last home game. However, Walter Mazzarri’s team still needs time to heal after falling to AS Roma in the Serie A and splitting the victory with Monza. Napoli will struggle in this game because Torino are a formidable team at home. In this match, the visitors will be missing Alex Meret, Natan Souza, and Mathias Olivera.
With a win here and a little bit of fortune in the outcomes, the Bulls, who are currently 11 points above the relegation zone, have established a strong platform for themselves going into the halfway point of the campaign. Ivan Juric’s team played to a 1-1 tie at home against Udinese, extending their league unbeaten streak to 4 games after 2 victories and a draw. Nonetheless, the Torino manager will be looking to enhance his team’s road record come January 1, as they have only collected 8 points in as many games thus far and have lost all 3 of their previous road games. It is anticipated that Antonio Sanabria will make a comeback to the starting lineup, but defender Perr Schuurs is still out due to an ACL injury.
