Napoli’s title challenge has faded quickly over recent months, but they will be looking to remain in the fight with a victory on the road this weekend. However, Torino will be looking to damage their chances by continuing their five-match unbeaten run.
Serie A Preview
There will certainly be disappointment at how quickly Napoli have dropped out of the title race in Serie A. They come into this fixture seven points behind AC Milan with just three games of the season remaining. Their main challenge over the closing weeks will be to finish third, which could be an interesting battle, as they are just one point ahead of Juventus at this late stage.
The Italian giants have won just once in their previous four games, and have suffered two defeats during that period. They remain a strong side at both ends of the field, as they have scored the third-highest number of goals, and have the third-best defensive record. Napoli recorded a first victory in four fixtures in their latest match, as they claimed a dominant 6-1 home win against Sassuolo. Dries Mertens scored twice in that game, while further goals were added by Hirving Lozano and Victor Osimhen.
Torino are enjoying a solid end to the Serie A season, as they are unbeaten in their previous five games. However, their battle this term has already been run, as they are too far away from the European places to lay down a challenge. But, fans will likely be happy enough with this season’s efforts, as they have easily finished clear of the relegation places.
Torino have picked up two wins from their previous three games, while they have picked up three draws from their last five games. Their steady form continued last time out, as they won 3-1 away from home against Empoli. Andrea Belotti was in excellent form in that fixture, as he scored a stunning 12-minute hat-trick in the final 15 minutes.
Torino vs Napoli Head to Head
Napoli has an excellent record in this fixture, as they are unbeaten in 13 fixtures against Torino. That includes three wins in the previous four fixtures between the sides. Their latest win was a 1-0 success in October. Napoli has also kept clean sheets in each of their last two fixtures against Torino.
Torino vs Napoli Prediction
Torino’s overall recent record is very strong. However, they have often come up short in fixtures against Napoli, which would be a huge concern. It should be a competitive fixture, but the most likely outcome could be a 1-0 success for Napoli on the road.
