Napoli vs. SPAL Predictions and Preview
This is a match between two sides in contrasting form although oddly, it will be the visitors who are slightly the happier with their current situation.
Despite not picking up a win in their last seven league outings, SPAL sit two places and five points outside the relegation zone and retaining their status is key to them this season.
Napoli have picked up an impressive 38 points in 16 league games but still trail league leaders Juventus – who have dropped just two points all season – by a whopping eight points.
If you fancy the home side to be leading at both half-time and at the final whistle, such odds are available at 3/4.
One to watch for Napoli: Arkadiusz Milik has already netted eight Serie A goals to date this campaign with four of those coming in his last three games.
One to watch for SPAL: Andrea Patagna is the dangerman for the visitors. He is their top league scorer this season with five in 16 matches while he netted in the recent 1-1 draw at Genoa.
Long shot: Napoli have already secured an impressive nine clean sheets this campaign across all competitions while SPAL have amassed a credible five. Odds of this game to finish scoreless are at 25/1.
