Fiorentina vs Napoli predictions and betting tips for this Saturday evening Serie A fixture on February 9th with an anytime goalscorer tip and goals prediction included.
Fiorentina are one of the most entertaining sides to watch in the Italian top flight and they will have been disappointed to have dropped points last weekend in Udine. They are back in front of their own fans against high-flying Napoli and this could be the one of the most eye-catching fixtures in Europe this weekend. Napoli have lost just once since the end of September and are incredibly tough to breach under Carlo Ancelotti. Will the vistors be able to take three points back to Naples? See our Fiorentina vs Napoli predictions below.
Fiorentina produced one of the biggest surprises of the season when dumping Roma out of the Coppa Italia courtesy of a 7-1 drubbing. Viola have been excellent this season although they do have a few absences to overcome here. They will feel as though they should have taken all three points last weekend and they need to bounce back here. Napoli have fewer selection issues but there is the possible distraction surroundings Marik Hamsik’s potential departure to China. Carlo Ancelotti has a decent record against Stefan Pioli but Napoli were defeated 3-0 here last season. The Partenopei will be determined to pick up maximum points with Juventus slipping up last weekend but it might not be quite as simple as that. Napoli have only lost three times away from home this season with Inter, Juventus and Sampdoria the only three sides to beat them so far and I can’t see them losing this. However, Fiorentina are tough to beat and they’ve drawn three of their last four games so another stalemate may be the best bet in this one. The draw is the first of our Fiorentina vs Napoli predictions for Saturday night.
Both of these sides have delivered in the entertaining stakes this season and 64% of Napoli’s games have ended with Over 2.5 Goals. They have kept back-to-back clean sheets in Serie A matches although they did concede twice to AC Milan in the Coppa Italia. 11 of their 18 goals conceded this season have come on the road although only two sides (Sampdoria and Juventus) have put more than a single goal past them. Fiorentina have now scored nine times in their last three matches but they’ve only kept one clean sheet in their last five matches. Their last home clean sheet came on September 30th and 50% of their games have ended with BTTS this campaign. Both Teams to Score? Yes is the second of the Fiorentina vs Napoli betting tips for this evening’s game.
Luis Muriel is one of a number of talented players on Fiorentina’s books. Unfortunately Marco Benassi is suspended for this game but Muriel should still get plenty of chances. He has netted seven times this campaign but struggled at Sevilla and he’s netted four goals in five games since joining on loan. He’s got previous in this division and he could be the man to help Fiorentina to a precious point here. He looks like the best bet in the anytime goalscorer market and is the third of our Fiorentina vs Napoli predictions.
Napoli were expected to start as favourites for this match although they’re odds-on for this game. They can be backed at 10/11 to take three points here. Fiorentina are available at 3/1 which could be too big for a side playing at home. It’s 13/5 for the game to end all-square.
Goals have been part and parcel of Fiorentina’s games in recent weeks and it’s 10/11 for Over 2.5 Goals here. It’s the same price for Under 2.5 Goals.
Arkadiusz Milik has been in excellent form this season and he’s netted in many away games recently. He is the 9/2 to break the deadlock in this tie and it’s 15/4 for his team-mate Dries Mertens to find the back of the net first.
