Napoli come into this game after an outstanding goal scoring display against Torino in their last outing winning by a solid 5-3 scoreline; which they should have kept a clean sheet, but the poor defensive record has gone against them this season. In fact Napoli have conceded goals in 65% of their matches this season and that primarily has to do with the poor defensive efforts of a chopped and change defense and a poor Pepe Reina in goal. Napoli despite losing Milik have been in great scoring form and have scored 2 goals in 5 out of their last 7 games and their last 4 games has seen them score 15 goals in total. Mertens, Hamsik, Callejon, Insigne has been covering up the goals in the recent games. Napoli games have seen 55 goals happen in 17 games, which is an average of over 3 goals per game.
Fiorentina on the other hand have bene embarrassed in their last 2 games, which were both away losing 3-1 to Lazio and 1-0 to Genoa. They need to turn around their defensive form which has seen them concede goals in 8 out of their last 9 games across all competition. On the attacking front, they generally find the back of the net at least once; and have only not scored in 4 out of 22 games played all season. Kalinic has been leading their offensive line along with support from Ilicic and Bernadeschi in their games so far this campaign.
Napoli games have seen 55 goals happen in 17 games, which is an average of over 3 goals per game, while Fiorentina have seen 46 goals in 17 games, which is almost 3 goals per game. This game looks to be an expansive game as Napoli knows only how to attack while also the fact that the Fiorentina has always scored means we should see a lot of goals in this game.
