Lorenzo Insigne has already bid a tearful farewell to the fans at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona, but will now say goodbye to Serie A. The Napoli captain will be playing in his last match in Italy against Spezia before joining up with Toronto in MLS next season.
Where and when: Stadio Alberto Picco – 22 May, kick-off 11:30

Last time: Spezia have enjoyed a fairly good record against Napoli since coming up last season and won 1-0 in Naples when they last met in December.
Spezia vs. Napoli Predictions and Preview
So it all comes down to this. The Serie A title will be decided between the two Milan clubs playing For a while it seemed as though Napoli may be able to make it an even more exciting end to the season in Italy, as they challenged to beat both Milan clubs to the scudetto. But a defeat to the Rossoneri in March was the writing on the wall – and three games without a win in April ended Insigne’s dreams of leaving for Canada with a league title.
Champions League football for next season was secured a while ago – and with Spezia retaining their Serie A status with a win against Udinese last weekend – this match may not be as full of drama as it might have been.
The home side will count staying up as an achievement in a league with clubs with budgets that dwarf their own. But Napoli will see this campaign as an opportunity missed.
Spezia vs. Napoli full time result odds
The Napoli players will want to give Insigne the send off he deserves. But an away match at Spezia with nothing on the line seems a sad end to his Serie A career. Spezia might not make any allowances for the occasion and could push Napoli here – especially if the visitors take a while to get going. That could make for a slow, drawn out game – but the draw might be good value at 7/2.
Spezia vs. Napoli both teams to score odds
Both teams’ defences may already be thinking of the summer holidays now and that could mean a bumper day for the strikers of Spezia and Napoli. With the final result meaning nothing in the way of league positions, European places or relegation, there could be goals. Napoli will want to finish the season off with a win, while Spezia would love to do the double over the Partenopei. A both teams to score bet at 6/10 seems the way to go here.
Spezia vs. Napoli correct score odds
This match might not have the importance that it might have done had both sides needed the points. But there could be a few goals for the last game of the season. Napoli have continued to find the net this year, with only Lazio and Inter managing more. Spezia tend to concede quite a few, so at least the fans might have something to celebrate. A 2-2 draw is priced at 14/1.
Spezia vs. Napoli first goalscorer odds
All eyes will be on Lorenzo Insigne on Sunday – and he will surely be given every opportunity to score one last goal (or more) for Napoli before he leaves. Spezia may well be not too bothered if he does that as long as they get a chance in front of goal too. For that reason, Insigne to score first has to be worth a go – and is priced at 7/2.
