Betting TipNapoli to Win
Serie A leaders Napoli will welcome Empoli to the Diego Armando Stadium on Tuesday, November 8th at 1730hrs GMT. The hosts hope to maintain their 2022/23 unbeaten run with a win against the visitors in the bottom half of the Serie A standings.
Napoli’s Impressive Unbeaten Run
The Partenopei remain the only unbeaten team in Serie A will 11 wins, and 2 draws this term. Striker Victor Osimhen’s form has been instrumental with his 8 goals. The goal-scoring burden has been shared with Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, who has scored 6 goals so far.
On the creating side, the burden is equally shared between Piotr Zielinski, Mario Rui, and Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, with 5 assists each.
Napoli are poised to continue on their good run with all players pulling their weight and making impactful contributions to the team.
Empoli’s Inability to Score
Languishing in 12th, Empoli have struggled to score all season. With only 2 players managing more than a single goal, the visitors will have a hard time putting any real pressure on the league leaders.
Having shipped 17 goals and only scored 10 this season, Empoli are having it rough in Serie A, and this is unlikely to be the turning point. Facing a formidable opponent with an in-form attacking partnership is not an ideal fixture for a team with only 3 wins in 13 league matches this season.
Napoli only have Amir Rrahmani missing through a thigh injury. Manager Luciano Spalletti will have a full squad to select his starting 11.
Empoli’s woes have them missing four players through injury: Lorenzo Tonelli (knee), Alberto Grassi (rib), Koni De Winter (thigh), and Mattia Destro (calf). Paolo Zanetti will have to do without them and hope to get a positive result.
A. Meret, M. Kim, J. Jesus, G. Lorenzo, M. Oliviera, S. Lobotka, A. Anguissa, P. Zielinski, H. Lozano, K. Kvaratskhelia, V. Osmhen.
G. Vicario, S. Luperto, A. Ismajli, F. Parisi, T. Ebuehi, R. Marin, F. Bandinelli, J. Fazzini, T. Baldanzi, M. Destro, M. Satriano.
After their 1-0 win over the weekend against Sassuolo, Paulo Zanetti boys will be motivated to try and get at least a point from Napoli. However, with the league leaders’ purple patch and an in-form striker partnership, Empoli will have a tough evening.
Expect Empoli to sit back and remain narrow in a deep block. The visitors will look to create chances through set pieces since open-play chances will be easily thwarted. Napoli will look to dominate the opponent and will have the ball for most of the match. The talent in attack will be enough to push through the deep block and create chances to secure a comfortable win.
