Finding some much-needed momentum and now with their sights set on finding a route back into the top-six, a resurging Napoli will make the trip to relegation scrappers Brescia on Friday night.
Picking up back-to-back 1-0 victories against Cagliari and Inter Milan in their Coppa Italia semi-final first-leg last week, Gli Azzurri have bounced back from their shock defeat against Leece and have now won five of their last six matches across all competitions.
On the flip side, hit with a 2-0 defeat away at defending champions Juventus last weekend and only watching their bottom-three deficit growing by the week, the Serie A returners have lost three of their last four and have failed to record a single victory since the middle of December.
Also suffering what was a deserved 2-1 loss when they made the trip to the Stadio San Paolo earlier in the season, you might be interested to know that Friday’s guests can be found priced at 8/13 with Paddy Power to extend on their recent revival at the Stadio Mario Rigamonti this week.
An immediate Serie B return for Brescia?
Having to play the majority of their trip to Turin with 10-men after watching forward Florian Ayé sent off after just 37 minutes, Brescia’s 2-0 defeat against Juventus now sees them on a winless run that stems back to the 14th of December.
Sat seven points adrift of Serie A safety and universally seen to be one of the leading contenders to lose their top-flight status this year, there is no doubt that Head Coach Diego López will have a growing headache over his side’s continued issues at the back.
Along with leading marksman and marquee name Mario Balotelli failing to find the net in his last four matches on the bounce, Le Rondinelle’s 44 goals conceded this season is the second-worst defensive tally of any side in the division.
Without a clean sheet since opening the New Year and now shipping at least a pair of strikes in six of their last nine matches at the Stadio Mario Rigamonti, you might be interested to know that betting offers like Brescia can be found priced at 8/13 with Ladbrokes and once again ship over 1.5 goals on Friday night.
Napoli march on
While Napoli’s shock 3-2 loss against Leece may have angered many around the Stadio San Paolo, Gli Azzurri have certainly bounced back in some style and reignited their European charge.
Picking up back-to-back 1-0 wins against Cagliari and also gaining an early advantage against Inter Milan in their Coppa Italia semi-final first-leg, the mood in Gennaro Gattuso’s camp appears to be on the rise.
With a Champions League knockout tie against Barcelona on the horizon, Napoli have won five of their last six matches across all competitions and have a growing reputation for their performances on the road.
Including their shock victory at the San Siro last week, the Blues have won their last three straight appearances away from the Stadio San Paolo.
There is no doubt that the former AC boss will be most impressed by his side’s newfound resolve at the back.
Recording back-to-back clean sheets for the first time since October, you might be interested to know that Friday’s guests can be found pencilled in at 6/4 with 888sport to leave the Stadio Mario Rigamonti once again unscathed.
